Look out – look up – help save lives!
- Are you working safely at height?
- Be aware of live overhead LiveLines!
Accidental contact with live overhead power lines results in fatal accidents every year and causes many serious injuries.
Work involving machinery capable of operating at variable heights is particularly high risk. In the construction sector for those working with lorry mounted cranes, Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWP’s), scaffold poles, tipper vehicles, cranes and ladders and in agriculture involving combines, sprayer booms, materials handlers, tipper vehicles, Telehandlers and excavators. The rail industry is also a huge area of concern as many accidents occur when equipment and machinery collide with live 25,000-volt overhead railway cables.
LiveLine Defender™ offers an innovative, UK-manufactured safety product represented by Sterling Agencies designed to prevent vehicles and variable height machinery coming into contact with high-voltage overhead power lines. It offers audible and visual warnings, greater interference rejection, a wide input voltage range and has sensitive range settings. A signal strength meter gives the operator an indication of proximity to a detected overhead power line.
This is a simple self-install, vehicle-based system with in-cab options and all-weather external mounting at the operator work station and mounted in the buckets.
