Renowned for being at the forefront of embracing the latest health & safety technology, the Meachers Group has invested in reversing cameras for the company's extensive fleet of tractors and trailers. The reversing cameras will be fitted to all Meachers fleet at its sites in Southampton and Derby.
Meachers has purchased the reversing cameras from Autosonics, a leader in the supply of new technology for vehicles. Meachers is using state-of-the-art CAM4000 back view reversing LED camera system in conjunction with a 5.6″ TFT LCD colour monitor and sound facility with volume control so that the driver can hear if someone outside the cab shouts a warning when he is reversing. Shock resistant, the camera can operate in temperatures ranging from -10C to +50C and is waterproof rated to IP67.
Commenting, Richard Lambourne a Director of the Meachers Group with specific responsibility for health & safety says: “It is a recorded fact that 90% of reversing accidents occur off-road when a vehicle is reversing in car parks, loading bays, lorry parks, warehouses and construction sites and of 60% of all truck accidents happen whilst the vehicle is being maneuvered. Meachers takes health & safety extremely seriously. We believe that fitting reversing cameras onto all our vehicles will help ensure that no accidents occur when our drivers are reversing”.
Meachers has invested in excess of £2.5 million in new vehicles and equipment, following the winning of a number of new contracts in a cross section of industries including aggregates, packaging, chemicals, plastics and marine. As well as investing in the reversing cameras, Meachers has updated its Warehouse Management Information System at the company's warehouse facilities in Southampton and Derby to provide staff and customers with greater control of stock levels and transactions.
The new Warehouse Management Information System together with the reversing cameras keeps Meachers at the forefront of current technology, and demonstrates its commitment to the use of IT in providing its customers with leading edge solutions.
