BodyGuard - Australian for workplace safety

proximity warning

Workplace accidents are costing companies a staggering amount of money in terms of  expensive downtime, investigations and increased insurance premiums. Staff training, safety barriers and PPE gear help to help lower risk, accidents involving moving vehicles and personnel are still occurring far too often. Factors such as fatigue, non-compliance with safe operating procedures and poor visibility are some of the major causes for accidents.

Are you determined to make your workplace safer, looking for ways to further reduce the risk of collision as a part of your safety strategy and ready to take your safety initiative to the next level?

BodyGuard  i-Tag system uses the latest technology  to significantly reduce the risk of collision between moving vehicles and pedestrians in the workplace. The system helps to overcome typical risk caused by factors such as driver inattention, poor visibility and worker non-compliance with exclusion areas around vehicles. BodyGuard  i-Tag  makes the workplace safer by increasing awareness when people are too close to a vehicle. The system sets up an invisible exclusion zone around the vehicle, providing an audible (siren followed by “Look Out! Person near you”) and visual warning alert to the operator when someone is detected within the programmable zone and optional vibration alert for pedestrian. This creates an opportunity for the driver and pedestrian to take appropriate action to avoid an incident.
