Tech Tricks for Rental Equipment Safety

Jan 27

In the construction and mining industries, renting equipment has become more popular, with many businesses opting to lease rather than buy equipment.


Indeed, market analysts anticipate that the rental of heavy equipment business will grow in the next few years, as construction firms seek to improve their efficiency. Operators are likely to have more experience with the equipment they rent as they are more comfortable in their cabins. This means there is more rental of equipment CT safety issues.


The following are some of the most frequently cited causes of work-related injuries:


pedestrians getting hit by moving parts, such as buckets for excavators, being hit by vehicles moving ground workers being stuck between the machine and an unmovable structure.


Commercial vehicle safety technologies including 360-degree cameras, warning sirens as well as radar obstacle detection, are all ways to improve security and mitigate the dangers of operating heavy machinery in difficult situations.


A guide for heavy equipment rental companies, recommending safety gear for excavators, loaders, dump trucks, and dozers in addition to other equipment rental options for the plant.


  • Monitor-equipped cameras

Blind spots are the areas around the vehicle concealed by the vehicle's bodywork cargo or attachments. Blind spots pose an extreme risk to everything or anyone in the vehicle's path while driving and limit the ability of the driver to operate the vehicle safely.


Mirrors and single-view cameras are able to help reduce blind spots, but they don't eliminate them. The research shows that even at speeds of 3 mph vehicles can go as far as 33 feet. It requires four monitors or mirrors to check the vehicle's surroundings, evaluate and react to dangers.


By providing the driver with a comprehensive 360-degree picture of their car in a single image The four-camera system is expected to eliminate blind spots in the vehicle and assist in safe driving under demanding conditions. This technology shows images taken by four ultra-wide-angle cameras on the operator's monitor. In the end, you'll get a "birds-eye" view of your car and its surroundings.


  • Alarms for warning and backup

Blind spots in the rear are a major issue, which is why backup accidents account for a fifth of all workplace deaths. Backup alarms emit an audible alert to anyone who is in their path when a car or machine is backing.


"Beep beep" alarms for backup are widely used around the world, but multifrequency alarms that use broadband technology like Brigade's brbs-tek can be considered to be more secure due to their location-based sound. This not only eliminates the noise nuisance but makes it easier for pedestrians and ground workers to locate them, especially when wearing hearing protection or working under challenging and noisy conditions.


  • Radar is used to find obstacles

Mining, quarrying, and construction companies often are in harsh terrains and harsh conditions, such as dust, fog, and darkness, thereby reducing the visibility for operators of plant machinery. Even in the most extreme conditions radar obstacle detection can detect fixed and moving objects giving operators in-cab visual and auditory alerts and alerting them to potential dangers.


  • Digital recorders that are on the move

Mobile digital recorders play crucially in improving safety and security. They safeguard drivers from false accusations and improve the performance of operators by providing irrefutable evidence in the case of an accident or false insurance claims.

Accidents involving vehicles can take some time and an enormous amount of money to repair.
