Object detection on Construction Sites

Construction 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.

Machines, vehicles, and ground employees must work in close proximity when working on an aggregate site like Idaho Materials and Construction (IMCCO), a division of Oldcastle. The mixture of these elements can result in a loud environment where backup alarms become less effective and intrusive to the surrounding neighbors. Because of Oldcastle’s corporate commitment to eliminating hazards and improving operations, IMCCO contacted PRECO.
