ENHANCED SAFETY FOR YOUR WORKFORCE
Over recent years a number of proximity warning systems have entered the marketplace, however they all focus on warning the machine operator that people have entered the exclusion zone, either by a flashing light or siren. We found this troublesome for a couple of reasons. Firstly the operator should be concentrating on operating the machine without distraction, and secondly flashing lights and sirens are not always the most effective alerts in dusty, noisy environments. A better solution was required.
MyZone puts the responsibility on the worker by attaching a small receiver to the back of their hard hat. If they enter a management designated exclusion zone (distance for this can vary from machine to machine) their receiver will vibrate, alerting them that they are in a dangerous area. The machine operator is free to work without any distraction.
We are using the MyZone Worker Alert System on our jobs and have found it to be an excellent system, with great potential to bring accidents on site down to a minimum. We are certain it will become the norm on every rail site.
