Wing mirror hoods to prevent unauthorised reversing

The safety of all personnel on site must be ensured at all times. Safety systems are essential to preventing accidents and securing the wellbeing of the workforce and visitors. This is particularly the case for vehicles operating on busy sites, which must be cautious of pedestrians and other vehicles.

See the examples below for how one site addressed this:

  • Attached wing mirror hoods to prevent drivers in the covered parking area from unauthorised reversing in the tight parking/marshalling area.
  • The wing mirror hoods could not be casually removed.
  • This system aims to avoid vehicle collision and pedestrian incidents.

This simple system helps secure everyone’s safety on site by preventing vehicle accidents caused by reversing.
