Keep your rental equipment safe with these tech tricks
Renting is now becoming more and more popular in the construction and mining industries. Many companies choose to lease equipment instead of purchase it.
Market analysts predict that heavy equipment rentals will continue to grow over the next time as construction firms look to increase their efficiency. But, as more equipment is that is rented, operators are likely to be in the cabs of their machines and may not have the same knowledge of the company's fleet. This means there are increased rental equipment CT security concerns.
Here are a few of the most frequent causes of work-related injuries:
pedestrians getting hit by moving pieces such as excavator buckets, being struck by moving vehicle ground workers getting stuck between an impermeable structure.
Safety equipment for commercial vehicles, like 360-degree cameras, warning sirens and radar obstacle detection are all ways to improve safety and mitigate risks when operating heavy machinery in challenging circumstances.
A guide for heavy equipment rental companies providing safety gear for loaders, excavators, dump trucks, and dozers along with other equipment rental options for the plant.
Blind spots are those which are concealed from view by attachments or cargo like the vehicle's bodywork and cargo. These blind spots can be a serious threat to anyone or anything in the vehicle's path while it is driving, which may limit the capability of the driver of the vehicle to operate safely.
While mirrors and single-view cameras help reduce blind spots, they do not completely eliminate them. The research shows that even at speeds of just three mph vehicles can go up to 33 feet. It requires four monitors or mirrors to look over the vehicle, identify and respond to threats.
By presenting the driver with a complete 360-degree image of their car in one image The four-camera system is expected to remove vehicle blind spots and help ensure safe driving in difficult circumstances. The technology combines images from four ultra-wide-angle cameras and displays them on the operator's monitor in real-time. The result is that you'll get a "birds-eye" view of the vehicle and the surrounding area.
Alarms for warning and backup
Blind spots in the rear can be a major issue. Backup accidents constitute a fifth of all workplace deaths. Backup alarms sound an audible warning to everyone in their path when a car or machine is backing.
"While the 'beep beep' back-up alarms are still widely used around the world, multifrequency alarms using broadband technology, like Brigade's bbs-tek alarm, are thought to be more secure because of their 'locatable ssh-ssh' sound that not only minimizes noise, but also is much faster for ground workers and pedestrians to pinpoint, especially in the event of hearing protection, or working in hazardous and noisy environments.
The radar can detect obstacles
Mining, quarrying, and construction industries frequently operate in difficult terrains and difficult conditions like dust, fog, or darkness, which further reduces sight for operators of plant machinery. Radar obstacle detection is capable of detecting moving and fixed objects. Operators are provided with visual and audio warnings, and also warning them of dangers.
Digital recorders on the move
Mobile digital recorders play crucially in improving security and safety. They shield drivers from false accusations as well improve the performance of operators and give indisputable evidence of accidents or fraudulent insurance claims.
It can be costly to fix car accidents, and it can take time.
