Kuda teams up with Operative Alert

Posted 30th Jan

Kuda Automotive are pleased to announce our new partnership with Operative Alert. Operative Alert is a ground breaking safety system designed to help eliminate work related hazards. It comprises of three units; a tag fitted to the operatives hard-hat/PPE; wireless sensors fitted to the vehicle and a dashboard mounted display.


The Operative Alert system is fitted to the hard-hats, lanyards or other PPE of on-site personnel, and side sensors enforced with heavy-duty rubber covering to withstand the construction environment. The parameters of ‘tag’ detection are adjustable in order to provide a safety area to suit the nature of the works undertaken, and be applied to any plant.

Operative Alert is driven by an employer's duty of care towards removing employees from unnecessary risk: last year alone 148 workers were killed at work, and another 78,000 injuries to employees were reported under RIDDOR. Over half of the fatal injuries to workers were of three kinds: falls from height; contact with moving machinery and being struck by a vehicle. Application of Operative Alert aims to reduce this number of fatalities and injuries through its system.

Operative alert is a cost effective and adaptable solution to achieving best practice safety standards for your business. 











So, How does it work?


OPERATIVE DETECTED

The Tag is a motion activated tag attached to the person or the hard hat. The Tag sends a message to sensors mounted on the vehicle.

WIRELESS SENSOR SIGNALS CABIN UNIT

The vehicle sensors receive the signal from the Tag and relays this information to the Driver’s Cab Unit.

DRIVER ALERTED

The Cab Unit receives the message that an Operative is present. The Cab Unit alerts the driver with an audible warning and displays the Operative’s position on a screen.

Is it just a construction industry product?


No! Operative Alert can be used in many other workplace environments, for instance in third party logistics, and the warehouse and distribution industries, where the close proximity of forklift trucks and delivery lorries to workers is a major risk.
