HEALTH & SAFETY INNOVATION AWARD | WINNER: COCKBURN CEMENT - KWINANA - KWINANA MOBILE PLANT ALARM SYSTEM
The Kwinana operations implemented a pedestrian mobile plant safety system that utilises an audible and visual proximity alarm that alerts both the pedestrian and plant operator.
The judges commented that "this innovation effectively addressed the ever present, ongoing high-risk situations of separating mobile plant and pedestrians. Whilst this innovation has been used in other industries, the judges were encouraged by the introduction of this into our sector".
