Heavy Duty Solutions for the Construction Industry

PRECO provides complete safety solutions for the wide variety of construction vehicle types. Operating in extreme environments, construction vehicles require safety solutions that can operate effectively regardless of environmental elements. With PRECO’s safety solutions in place, operators of construction equipment can focus on the job at hand, knowing that they will be notified if a person or object is in their blind zone.

Blind zone safety starts with PRECO’s patented pulsed radar. For most construction vehicles, one or more of PRECO’s PreView WorkSight radar, combined with the PreView Plus camera/monitor system for in-cab visuals and the PreView Safety Alerts System (an alarm that delivers an external audible warning) will provide the best possible blind zone safety solution.

Since each vehicle type has different needs, we recommend contacting a PRECO Safety Specialist to discuss the specific requirements of your vehicles.

Object detection on Construction SitesConstruction site accidents are costly and can bring an entire operation to a halt. Unfortunately, these accidents are also on the rise. The U.S. Department of Labor reported that 4,386 work fatalities were investigated in 2014, 20.5% of which were in construction. Being struck by an object was one of the leading causes of construction worker deaths. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, approximately 75% of struck-by fatalities involved heavy equipment such as trucks and bulldozers.

Idaho Materials and Construction finds a safety solution that will work in loud environments

Because of Idaho Materials & Construction’s corporate commitment to eliminating hazards and improving operations, IMCCO contacted PRECO.

The first priority was reducing blind spot accidents. Studies show that more than half the accidents at a construction site are due to blind spots. The second priority was increasing the effectiveness of backup alarms and reducing the noise levels for the surrounding neighbors within OSHA guidelines. Finally, IMCCO is a business, so protecting the bottom line was essential.
