Reduce risk of accidental vehicle collisions within Ports and Terminals
Over 6 million goods vehicles and trailers, transporting over 500 million tonnes of freight, pass through UK ports each year according to the Department of Transport.
Keeping your workforce safe has never been so important. Vehicles moving bulky loads have a far greater risk of collision with pedestrian workers. Driver vision can be obscured or limited due to carrying large loads especially when driving around blind corners or operating in busy or confined spaces. The consequences of an accident with a reach stacker can be devastating and life changing.
Unfortunately accidents can occur and people have been severely injured or killed by the driver of a large industrial vehicle not aware that someone was in close proximity to their vehicle.
Why use ZoneSafe?
ZoneSafe uses RFID technology to set up an invisible 360 degree detection zone around a vehicle or asset – often referred to as the danger zone or collision risk area. Using detection antennas, single or multiple zones can be set up with a detection range between 3-9 metres.
- Antenna fitted on the vehicle– Provides a complete 360 degree detection zone around the vehicle.
- Vehicle control box – Provides an audible visual alarm to the driver in the cab of detected personnel.
- Personnel Tag – personnel carry tags which are detected by vehicles and trigger the alarm.
Install ZoneSafe to any industrial vehicle
ZoneSafe can be installed to all types of vehicles in ports and terminals including reach stackers, container handlers, forklift trucks and terminal tractors with a number of options available for either permanent or temporary installations.
Do more with system add-ons
ZoneSafe can operate at walkways and crossings to warn of approaching vehicles, used with access control to prevent unauthorised access on to site and utilised to protect high risk areas and assets from vehicle collisions. For more information contact us.
The safety of our employees is paramount in our business and DSSP are always looking for initiatives and innovations that can help us provide as safe a working environment as possible. ZoneSafe provides a simple but significant addition to the fleet of trucks here at Featherstone combining ease of use with reliability. We are using this in areas where pedestrians and moving machinery have to work together and it has clearly improved the awareness and confidence of both truck operators and pedestrians. I consider this to be a major addition to our effective health and safety management systems.
We consider this a valuable and reliable tool which will significantly increase safety in our daily operations and aid us in our effort to transform APM Terminals Callao into a very safe place where everyone enjoys working while being safe doing so.
We've been using Zonesafe for nearly 4 years now (fitted on 10 forklifts) and the system has contributed to us having no LTI's or MTI's across two very busy sites. I highly recommend this technology.
