The cost implications of this problem can be significant; accidents involving transport within the workplace not only mean personal costs for the employee, but there are also disruption costs to businesses such as lost productivity through employee absence from work, reduced employee efficiency and poor staff morale, together with the potential damage caused to both an organisation and its reputation through negative publicity.
Well known for improving workplace safety, Davis Derby
, world leading supplier of fleet management systems, driver access control and safety monitoring equipment, has recently introduced the Pedestrian Alert System
. The system not only detects pedestrians and objects but also provides a warning and control thereby influencing the driver to improve safety, or reduce the speed of the vehicle if no action is taken.
