As with all waste management companies, health and safety is one of its main priorities.
With a well-established safety-conscious culture, the company believes that all injuries and occupational illnesses are preventable. It also believes in robust, non-negotiable standards being rigorously applied across the business.
This focus is seeing continual improvements in safety performance across the business: one area being vehicle and operative safety.
As part of its focus on safety in and around vehicles, the company turned to innovative vehicle safety specialist Vision Techniques to help improve its operation.
For over fifteen years, the company has been using Vision Techniques products with a steady increase in vehicle safety improvements.
Hundreds of its waste management vehicles are fitted with innovative products such as Zone Safe II, Banksman Radar, special audio reversing alarms and general reversing camera and specialist equipment.
After testing, the company has recently put in a request for Vision Techniques latest vehicle safety and security innovation VT Live to be fitted to its vehicles.
VT-Live is the very latest mobile multi-camera video recording system allowing vehicle operatives to be protected, defended, tracked and trained.
Designed for vehicles in any industry, this revolutionary recording system streams live video footage from vehicle-mounted cameras back to base, or to any location, using VT-Live’s built-in remote connectivity.
The results are tangible – the technology and safety systems provided by Vision Techniques have helped the multinational waste management company to further reduce incidents and protect assets.
A spokesman for the company said: “The systems installed by Vision Techniques’ have helped us to improve the safety of our vehicles and the safety of the people not only working at our sites but anywhere our vehicles are operating.
Vision Techniques supplies security and safety equipment for many different types of vehicles – including vans, lorries, trucks, forklifts and off highway dump trucks and loading shovels throughout the country.
It supplies an ever-increasing “Crew Safe” range of safety products to local authorities – as well as waste disposal vehicle manufacturers and vehicle body-builders.
