BodyGuard Safety Solutions provide a range of safety warning systems that are specifically designed to separate people from moving vehicles at worksites, reducing the risk of pedestrians being hit by mobile plant.

One of the most difficult things to achieve at a busy worksite is people to plant separation. Safety rules, painted lines, bollards and systems like ‘blue lights’ all depend on human factors such as staff paying attention, obeying safety rules and good safety judgement. More needs to be done to achieve people to plant separation that minimises these issues with traditional methods.

The BodyGuard i-Tag system is fitted to vehicles and provides a 360° safety exclusion/keep-out zone around the vehicle. Staff wear a small ‘Tag’ device on a lanyard or in pocket of a vest. If the person is detected within the safety exclusion zone (adjustable from 2.5 m to around 9 m), then the driver receives an unmistakable visual and audible alert (high visibility lights and initial siren followed by human voice “Look out! Person near you”). The Tag on the pedestrian will also vibrate.

The system helps overcome issues of poor safety judgment and behaviour, inattention, fatigue and blind spots around vehicles.

The system is quick and easy to install (magnetic mounting — which is also suitable for leased vehicles) and easy to use.
