Roadwork Zone Incursions
Being a road worker is the 16th most dangerous occupation in the UK. Between 2007 and 2016 there were 15 recorded road worker fatalities and 210 serious injuries. The majority of serious injuries and deaths were due to workers being struck by oncoming vehicles. Over the last 10 years there have been over 18,000 reports of vehicle incursions into roadworks on the Highways England Network.
The Navtech Radar ClearWay solution detects vehicle incursions and activates audible and visual alarms, both from a central alarm post and at the individual worker level through wearable devices.
It offers further protection to workers by alerting both individuals and site managers, if personnel move outside designated work areas or enter live traffic zones.
Unlike video based systems which are designed to detect and punish vehicle incursions, ClearWay is based on detection and warning, giving workers vital moments to get to safety in time critical situations.
Roadwork Zone Security
Theft of plant and other equipment from highway roadwork zones is a major industry problem, creating not just a financial burden, but also unplanned delays to projects when vital equipment is suddenly and unexpectedly unavailable. It is estimated that the UK construction industry alone loses £800 million a year to theft. Thieves have become increasingly sophisticated in the methods they employ, even posing as plant manufacturers or maintenance workers in order to remove vehicles from site.
The Navtech Radar ClearWay solution detects and alerts site managers and security personnel, when vehicles and people enter a secure roadwork zone, allowing instant friend or foe determination.
