Refuse and Waste

The refuse and waste sector is hugely diverse with a host of challenges for operators, owners and drivers. Design of modern vehicles has led to significant performance improvements, but the nature and size mean that driver visibility is usually impaired. 

Blind spots are a contributory factor in many incidents involving refuse vehicles with their shape, size and elevated driver positions all limiting the field of vision. 

Being able to prevent incidents on sites and on public roads is paramount, with the added benefit of making the driving experience easier and more relaxed. 

Additionally, refuse vehicles operators have the added responsibility of keeping an eye on their team members, as well as the public, both pedestrians and drivers.
