There is now, for the first time, a low cost proximity warning system to aid in the prevention of workplace accidents involving vehicles, operatives, mobile equipment and pedestrians.
The EV-Alert system, through its patented technology, uses secure, coded radio transmissions to overcome the traditional visual and audible barriers and lack of altertness which cause many workplace accidents. EV Alert has a dedicated website containing comprehensive information for your perusal. EV Alert Website
Forklift Trucks & Mobile Plant
EV-Alert has particular applications for forklift trucks and other mobile equipment. The potential of pedestrian traffic being completely unaware of a vehicle's approach is very high. Unlike many 'continuous' warnings, EV-Alert only activates when there is immediate danger of collision!
The EV-Alert systems provides employees and visitors with a clear, visible warning if imminent danger from approaching mobile equipment in their immediate proximity.
EV-Alert is used extensively to provide warning of approaching can trains to harvesting vehicles and local road users. Transmitters are installed on locomotives and EV-Alert Receivers provide a pulsing amber warning light on the driver's instrument panels. Accidents are often due to vehicle drivers simply not seeing or hearing approaching trains because of high sugar cane close to crossings and junctions, dust, sun glare, air conditioned cabs with stereos or simply fatigue.
Transmitters can also remotely activate rail crossing warning lights and also pre-warn track maintenance crews.
Radio based hazard warning
Traditional 'sight & sound' are no longer reliable enough to prevent accidents. There are simply too many audible and visual barriers in the workplace and on the roads.
Industrial premises, mining, agriculture, forestry and other workplaces have noise, blind corners, doorways, crops or vegetation blocking line of sight or forming barriers to the identification of approaching vehicles, machinery or other hazards.
On the roads, drivers cannot see or hear many hazards until it is loo late. Today's soundproofed vehicles with air conditioning, windows closed, stereo systems and mobile phones, prevent effective communication of audible signs, sirens or horns. Other traffic, blind corners, poor weather conditions or simply fatigue or lack of attention all make visual warning less reliable.
EV-Alert brings the warning 'in-vehicle' by the use of radio technology - directly to the driver or pedestrian operatives. Ooperates traffic lights, gates and booms, security access and proximity control
opens a new era of improved safety in a wide variety of workplaces and on public and private roads.
Road Safety Network
EV-Alert is a world first IN-VEHICLE road hazard warning. Conventional external roadside warning signs, emergency vehicle lights, sirens and even rail crossing lights are simply no longer effective, as evidenced by the high number of accidents. EV-Alert's pulsing amber light, in front of the driver, provides those vital seconds to avoid injury, vehicle damage or death.
