The SiteZone proximity warning system (PWS), was never intended to replace existing safety protocols or methodology.  It was supposed to be an addition – a complementary system to enhance what existed.  That’s how SiteZone still works today – using RFID (radio frequency identification) to warn vehicle operators and pedestrians of a potential collision risk.

The relationship between feeling good and working well I have no doubt that there’s a strong correlation between your health and how you work. Especially when it comes to mental well-being at work – stress can be a distraction, and a real danger if you work in a high-risk industry. Work-related mental health is being discussed in the open now – the dialogue has begun to help ...

Proximity warning specialist SiteZone Safety hires new business development executive as the business plans next phase of growth.

Danger that doesn’t move Our safety focus has always been on preventing collisions between workers and plant vehicles.

Having invested time and ...

The spectre of Brexit hanging over us, leading us into the unknown – businesses are cautious, maybe even worried. However, taking a lead from contemporary popular culture I say we can only “keep calm and carry on.”  That’s what I certa ...

There are a lot of voices out there talking about work related safety. There are, of course, the ‘hot spot’ industries for which worker safety and injury prevention are a high priority.  The usual suspects when it comes to injury and fatalities are slips, trips, falls from height, being struck by objects and of course, being struck by a vehicle.
