LEADING waste management company, Biffa, has chosen to equip the vehicles bound for its latest flagship contract wins in East Sussex and Waverley, with live camera systems, in line with the company’s commitment to health and safety.
David Maidman, Business Director at Biffa, said: “The health and safety of our workforce and the proper management of our vehicles is of the utmost importance to us. The workplace is becoming increasingly challenging with more traffic and greater demands on drivers and collection crews. Installing these live cameras will provide additional reassurance and security for our staff, and the public.”
The contract for the live camera systems, which are to be fitted to over 80 vehicles comprising a combination of refuse vehicles, caged tippers and sweepers, was won by UK vehicle safety technology company, Innovative Safety Systems Ltd (ISS).
The RXLite live camera system from ISS is manufactured using premium grade components to minimise any risk of failure and utilises wide angle HD 720p cameras and an HD in-cab monitor for maximum image clarity.
However, it was the company’s after-sales service, including a dedicated installation crew and installation app that particularly impressed decision-makers at Biffa.
Added David: “ISS have been very supportive and professional in their approach, and they have the necessary infrastructure to assist us with the mobilisation of the vehicles. We have worked with ISS before on smaller contracts and have always been very pleased with the quality of their products and service.”
Oliver Hoadley, UK Sales Director at ISS, said: “These are major contracts and we are delighted that Biffa has selected us as their chosen safety technology provider.”
The East Sussex contract, for the provision of 60 vehicles, commences on 29 June 2019 and the Waverley contract for 20 vehicles commences on 1 November 2019.
ISS designs, supplies and maintains a wide range of vehicle safety technology, much of which is manufactured here in the UK. ISS products include Cyclear™ (cyclist safety warning device), Reaclear (HGV reversing safety device), RXLite (live camera system), RX3 Hard Disk Recording camera systems, the LANLink remote footage download, reverse radar, Auto-stop radar and vehicle-tracking systems.
