BodyGuard - Australian for workplace safety

proximity warningEvery day workers face risk in their workplace from moving equipment. Pedestrians and vehicles do not mix. Despite the many safety processes used today, people are still getting too close and being  hit by moving vehicles.

Designed and manufactured in Australia, BodyGuard is a TB-PWAS (Tag Based Proximity Warning Alert) that reduces risk of collision by improving driver awareness.

Reducing the risk of collision, BodyGuard improves your organisation’s bottom line.

Non-injury collisions can cost a company hundreds of thousands of dollars each day a vehicle is out of service, personnel are off work or investigations being undertaken.

Reducing the likelihood of collision provides real savings.
