Health and Safety Risk Assessment

Risk assessment   requires enhanced vehicle, operator and public safety by increasing visibility around the working area.
High visibility is particularly important for emergency ,utility, municipal & construction service personnel whom may be working at the roadside and at particular risk from fast moving road traffic.

Driver or operator vision can be improved when reversing or turning by fitment of  a vehicle monitor and cctv camera system which may be ignition switched to activate when the engine is running or switched by a reverse gear selection or camera switch. A monitoring system can also prove useful during loading / unloading and processing operation for example on Waste collection, tipping, combining, baling etc. where  material flow needs to be monitored.

IP Rating

The IP rating of the camera kit is a two digit code referring to Ingress Protection against dirt dust and moisture. First digit of IP code refers to ingress protection against solids eg Dust. Second digit of IP code refers to Ingress protection against moisture. Higher the rating generally provides best protection.
