Ports and terminal dock sites present significant safety risks due to the large, heavy-moving vehicles and loads that operate within these environments. Obstructed views and blind spots are a common problem for drivers of vehicles such as large reach stackers, making it difficult for them to see workers or other obstacles in their vicinity. This increases the risk of accidents and injuries.
Over 6 million vehicles carrying 500 million tons of freight each year pass through UK ports, but HSE inspections only occur in case of accidents.
To mitigate these risks, proximity detection systems offer advantages in improving health and safety in ports and terminals. ZoneSafe proximity waning systems use sensors and alerts to detect and warn operators of potential collisions with personnel, vehicles, or other objects in their vicinity. This increased visibility and early warning of potential collisions can give drivers the time to take evasive action and avoid accidents.
