Mick George Ltd have installed a series of new innovative safety features on their fleet of machinery in use at the Apex Bedford development, in which a multi-brand trade park is being constructed.
Serious accident rates and fatalities in the construction industry still remain too high and Mick George Ltd are doing all they can to combat that trend.
One of the systems that has been installed to prevent accidents on sites is Optronics 360, the world’s first 360 degree surround view camera system for industrial and commercial vehicles. The system utilises dynamic wide range cameras to cover all vehicle blind spots.
The Electronic Control Unit (ECU) processes large amounts of data, filters through vision mapping software before cleverly ‘stitching’ these images together to display a composite all round bird’s eye view on the internal monitor screen. The output is bespoke for each type of vehicle and surrounding, ensuring maximum 360 degree driver vision and increased safety for all within the vicinity.
We have also introduced Trimble GCS900 Grade Control Systems to equipment to improve efficiencies throughout, predominantly focusing on the bulk earthworks, compacting and finished grading provisions.
This technology enables contractors to effectively finish faster and more accurately than ever before, by streamlining processes and taking care of many of the complex works included on-site.
