Prevent Collisions & Accidents

Knowing your surroundings and being aware of risks keep your people safe

No matter what the size or scale of a project is, there is always a risk of collision. What steps can you take to minimise your risks?

Cat Detect – Proximity Detection System

Detect for Personnel determines the temporary, dynamic dangerous work zone. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is placed within protective equipment such as safety vests or hard hats, and an antenna is installed in equipment to communicate with the RFID tags. If an operator reverses a piece of equipment installed with an antenna, they will be alerted inside the cab with a visual and audible alarm when a ground worker is behind them. The loud audible alarm outside of the cab also alerts the ground worker of their interference of the detection zone behind the equipment.

Key Benefits:

  • Any vehicle equipped with a Detect for Personnel antenna will detect any ground worker, on any job site, wearing a Detect for Personnel equipped safety vest or hard hat.
  • No false alarms – only detects objects that are tagged with RFID.
  • High accuracy and repeatability to detect personnel upright, crouching, lying & sitting down.
