Hot on the heels of Thamesdown and Red Industries, Recresco are the latest waste and recycling company to invest in a detect and protect safety solution from ZoneSafe. Based in Ellesmere Port near Liverpool, the company specialise in glass recycling. After a careful evaluation of the market, the company decided that the addition of ZoneSafe would add an extra layer to its safe working environment.
Recresco Director Eric Gent commented, “We have a strong commitment to worker safety with robust safety systems in place to ensure that wherever possible, pedestrians and plant are kept strictly separate. As one of the highest risks to worker safety involves pedestrian collision with moving vehicles, we felt the incorporation of a sensor and warning system was an essential investment. After reviewing various technologies, including 360-degree cameras, it was decided the ZoneSafe system of electronic RFID tags offered the most reliable and effective solution.” Read the full story on Agg-net here.
The waste and recycling industry has seen a recent surge in attempts to increase worksite safety following reports from The HSE that the industry still has a fatality rate 18 times that of any other, and perhaps more importantly, the main causes of a fatality is still transport and machinery related. The report from The HSE comes at a difficult time not just for the waste and recycling industry, but for everyone across the country. Monitoring precautions against COVID-19 remains really important but employers also need to ensure compliance and precautions aimed at other risks continue and are not degraded.
