An increasing number of companies in the recycling and waste management sector are investing in mobile safety systems to protect the public and their staff, according to Wolverhampton-based Spillard Safety Systems, in a press release trailing its latest products to be on display at the RWM show.
These systems help ensure drivers are not susceptible to any blind spots when doing their jobs. Firms in this sector are also keen to protect themselves against expensive legal cases when accidents happen.
As part of its presence at RWM (stand 5S70-T75), Spillard will be unveiling its new Optronics HD range of safety systems, including the Optronics Foresight system.
Spillard says its solutions are now being targeted at the waste management sector, and also now include High Definition capabilities, “providing users with crystal clear vision and state-of-the-art recording capabilities”.
“Over the last twelve months we have supplied products that have been installed on vehicle fleets for utility companies, waste management specialists and recycling firms and they are already reporting fewer incidents and examples where our camera systems have proven they were not responsible for incidents,” said Peter Spillard, Managing Director.
He went on to add: “RWM is a fantastic show and this year we will be unveiling our new Optronics HD Range, which takes clarity of picture to a whole new level. Our team of experts will be on hand and there will also be live video demonstrations and examples of ‘blind spot’ mapping too.”
This year Spillard Safety Systems has been championing the removal of ‘blind spots’ in the commercial vehicle, construction, quarrying and now waste sectors for over 25 years.
It currently supports more than 100 different customers with the latest mobile safety equipment, whilst also working with various groups to educate them on the dangers of poor visibility.
One of the company’s biggest success stories is its partnership with S&B Waste Management & Recycling.
What originally started as a test of one product has resulted in more than 25 vehicles being fitted with a range of Spillard solutions after productivity increased. Not only did S&B Waste perform more journeys for its customers, but money was also saved from fraudulent claims.
