The LNA would like take this opportunity to congratulate Benedict Industries for their fantastic achievements in receiving a Highly Commended award for the OH&S INNOVATION - For outstanding achievement in developing and implementing an innovative solution to an identified health and safety issue from Cement Concrete and Aggregates Australia (CCAA).
Following a near miss between a Dump Truck & an Excavator, a “Risk Assessment” was conducted. This identified that the operator could not hear the excavator horn signal, due to the dump truck having an insulated cabin to reduce outside noise.
After trial and error and consultation with manufacturers, Benedict personnel developed a system that uses both sound and visual notification to both operators – thereby helping to ensure good communication between operators while ensuring machine safe practice.
