How does ZoneSafe work?

When accidents occur with a vehicle, pedestrians are the most at risk. Accidental collisions often occur when a pedestrian is not aware of an operating vehicle. This is common in busy or loud environments. The damage caused to a person by a forklift can often be severe, even fatal.

How ZoneSafe work?

ZoneSafe Proximity Warning & Alert Systems use RFID technology to help reduce the risk of accidental collisions and near miss occurrences between personnel, assets, vehicles and machinery.

A ZoneSafe in-cab control unit is fitted within reach of the vehicle’s operator. An audible visual alarm alerts the operator every time a tagged person or object is detected entering or breaking the antenna’s detection zone.

A ZoneSafe detection antenna is fitted to the vehicle. This creates a 3-9 metre continuous detection zone around the vehicle, which detects personnel or objects carrying a ZoneSafe tag.

ZoneSafe active RFID tags are worn by all personnel or fitted to assets. The tag can be placed in our ZoneSafe hi visibility jacket, clipped to a lanyard, placed in your pocket or fitted to a detection cone.

Further applications of the ZoneSafe system

ZoneSafe is frequently used as a proximity warning system for vehicle to person detection, however, that is just one of the many applications the system offers. The ZoneSafe system helps to improve safety across entire work sites with the following applications:

Alongside our standard product range, we can design and implement a proximity warning system using our in house services to suit a customer’s application.

  • The safety of our employees is paramount in our business and DSSP are always looking for initiatives and innovations that can help us provide as safe a working environment as possible. ZoneSafe® provides a simple but significant addition to the fleet of trucks here at Featherstone combining ease of use with reliability. We are using this in areas where pedestrians and moving machinery have to work together and it has clearly improved the awareness and confidence of both truck operators and pedestrians. I consider this to be a major addition to our effective health and safety management systems.

  • We've been using Zonesafe for nearly 4 years now (fitted on 10 forklifts) and the system has contributed to us having no LTI's or MTI's across two very busy sites. I highly recommend this technology.
