Proximity warning systems

21 September 2018

SiteZone Safety will be showcasing its portfolio of proximity warning systems at Health & Safety North 2018.

The team, led by SiteZone director Gary Escott, will be showing the full range of SiteZone radio frequency identification (RFID) proximity warning alarm systems.

The SiteZone proximity warning system uses RFID technology to warn pedestrians and drivers of each other’s presence. Using vibration as well as audio and visual alerts, SiteZone lets the driver know when a pedestrian is close to the vehicle and warns the pedestrian that their safety is compromised.

SiteZone has evolved into smart variants including what is said to be the UK’s first wireless proximity warning system, SiteZone iNstant, for easy and quick installation without cables. 

There’s a SiteZone option specially designed for use on extendable parts of plant machinery called BucketZone, while OverSite is a telematics option which collects essential data from SiteZone in the event of a zone breach and saves to the Cloud to help managers monitor and improve site safety.

Dumper Advance is a SiteZone variant specifically designed to prevent collisions between forward tipping dumpers and site workers. Robustly designed, a discrete antenna can be placed directly under the skip of the machine, which allows for the creation of a larger detection zone at the front of the vehicle which is the major point of concern.  

Gary Escott, director of SiteZone Safety, said: “The SiteZone team will be on hand to share information on our safety innovations, and answering questions on how we could assist you in making your site operations safer. This year we have been focusing on improvements to anti-collision safety in the waste and recycling sectors as staff/vehicle collision risk is still a high priority. We look forward to engaging with influencers with insight at the show.”
