Tech Tips to Ensure Safety when using Rental Equipment

Jan 27

Renting equipment is becoming increasingly popular in the construction and mining industries. Many companies choose to lease equipment instead of purchase it.


Market analysts predict that the rental of heavy equipment industry will grow significantly in the next few years, as construction firms seek to improve their efficiency. With more equipment being rented, workers will be rushing into cabs of their machines and may not have the same knowledge of the fleet of equipment owned by the company. Therefore, there will be a rise in rentals of equipment CT security issues.


Here are some of the most frequent causes of workplace injuries:


People who walk on the sidewalk are hit by moving parts, like excavator buckets.


Safety technology for commercial vehicles, such as 360-degree cameras, warning sirens, and radar obstacle detection, are all ways to improve security and reduce dangers while driving heavy machinery in hazardous situations.


This guide is for rental companies renting heavy equipment. It suggests safety equipment for loaders and excavators, dozers, and dump trucks in addition to other rental machines.


  • Cameras that have monitors

Blind spots are those that are covered from view by attachments or cargo like the bodywork of the vehicle and cargo. They can pose a significant threat to any object or person in the vehicle's direction during navigation, which limits an individual's ability to drive the vehicle to be operated in a safe manner.


Mirrors and single-view cameras can help reduce blind spots, but they can't completely eliminate them. According to research, even at speeds at as low as 3 mph vehicles can travel over 33 feet within the space it takes to scan four monitors or mirrors, evaluate the threat, and react to threats.


By presenting the driver with a complete 360-degree image of their vehicle in one image The four-camera system is expected to eliminate blind spots in the vehicle and assist in safe driving under difficult conditions. The system combines images taken by four ultra-wide-angle cameras and shows them on the operator's monitor in real-time. As a result, you'll have the "birds-eye" view of your vehicle and the surrounding area.


  • Alarms for backup and warning

Blind spots on the rear of vehicles can be very dangerous. Backup incidents cause a fifth of occupational deaths. Backup alarms sound an audible warning to everyone in their path when a vehicle or machine is backing.


"While beep-beep backup alarms are still widely used throughout the world, multifrequency alarms using broadband technology, like Brigade's bbs-tek, are considered to be safer due to their locatable ssh sound that not just minimizes noise, but also makes it much easier for ground workers and pedestrians to spot, especially when wearing hearing protection or working in challenging and noisy conditions.


  • Radar is a method used to locate obstacles

Mining, quarrying, and construction companies often perform their work in rough terrains as well as difficult conditions like fog, dust, and darkness, thereby reducing the visibility for plant machinery operators. Radar obstacle detection is able to detect fixed and moving objects. It provides operators with in-cab visual alerts and auditory alerts, while also alerting them to any dangers.


  • Digital recorders that can be used on mobile devices.

The role of mobile digital recorders is crucial in improving safety and security. They can protect drivers from false accusations and boost operational efficiency by providing solid evidence in the incident of an accident as well as fraudulent insurance claims.

Automobile accidents can last many years to resolve and will cost many dollars for repairing.
