The UK has introduced the first ever safety device for our lone, Night Cement Tanker Drivers – both CEMEX and Agency Drivers.
The new gadget is worn like a badge. It tracks the driver via GPS and acts as a safety alert if they have an accident. Should the Driver get into trouble they can either press a button to raise the alarm, or the ‘man down’ function automatically senses if they fall and raises the alarm.
Barrie Flitton, Operations Manager Logistics, commented: “The idea for this came from the workforce, and everyone benefits from greater peace of mind that our lone workers are safe.”
Here is a short video about the new device:
