A recent FORS case study has highlighted how PeoplePanels® have contributed towards Day Aggregates’ fantastic fleet safety and their recently renewed GOLD status. As a FORS associate/supplier its a real privilege for us to supply the Day fleet with our innovative safety equipment and support their dedication to enhancing road safety for VRUs.
“Protecting vulnerable road users is at the heart of our philosophy. With this in mind we wanted to raise the bar in keeping the vulnerable road user safe whilst parallel to the HGV. Research has shown that 9% of fatalities could have been prevented if vehicles had been fitted with cycle guard panels. We are an early adopter of the Dawes Highway Safety PeoplePanels® and we have now had them fitted to 35 of our current HGV fleet. These panels are being retro fitted to our existing vehicles and are being fitted to all new HGV and trailers before entering service.”
