    Faultless start for hard hat safety buzzer

    Faultless start for hard hat safety buzzer

    The MyZone Worker Alert System has reached five million rental hours without one reported incident on British sites.

    The hard hat safety buzzer warns workers when they are getting too close to plant or machinery.

    If you work in the industry and have not been so fortunate, then you could be eligible to make a construction accident claim. Accident Advice Helpline would be happy to help you.

    System used ‘to exceptional effect’

    Distributor TechGB Ltd said the system is becoming increasingly popular on construction sites.

    Carillion IMS manager Roy Pearson has used the personal MyZone proximity alarm “to exceptional effect” on the A23 Bypass project in Sussex since it got underway in April last year.

    He said everyone on site has benefited from the alarm and are more safety conscious because of it.

    “As part of the overall strategy for providing a safe working environment for all, the site management have no doubt in confirming that the use of MyZone on the A23 project has played a vital and essential role in achieving our current safety statistics of 0.00 AFR and 72 weeks and 630,000 hours accident-free to date,” said Pearson.

    “It should be noted that there have been several anecdotal stories of the system forewarning individuals of the potential dangers of encroaching plant in addition to the positive response from the workforce at the project Safety Action Group.”

    Zero harm goal

    William Jackson Grad IOSH, regional HSE advisor, Balfour Beatty Construction Services UK, believes the MyZone Worker Alert System is an excellent and affordable addition to safe working practices on site.

    “MyZone will assist in addressing one of the construction industry’s biggest safety concerns, the pedestrian – plant interface, and will be a welcome ally in the fight to achieve the goal of zero harm across the construction industry,” he said.
