The PRECO Electronics team is exhibiting at North America’s largest work truck event, The Work Truck Show 2017, located at booth #5873, demonstrating how our radar safety technology eliminates an operators’ blind spots in side and rear applications. On display will be the combination of PRECO’s two recently announced collision mitigation technologies: PreView Side Defender and PreView Sentry.
PRECO Electronics proudly announces the 2016 Safety in Motion Award recipients as Solid Waste Association of North America’s (SWANA) David Biderman and City of Oxnard Environmental Resources Division’s George Van Hemert. Both recipients have continually demonstrated their unparalleled commitment to safety to distinguish themselves as leaders in safety.
The 2016 Safety in Motion Award also recognized Clint McGinty of Phoenix Services and James Zertuche of NAPCO Precast as finalists for this year’s award. Both runners-up continue to drive safety within their companies and industries. PRECO congratulates them on their nominations and recognition for being finalists for the 2016 Safety in Motion Award.
PRECO is honored to announce the finalists and top nominees for the 2016 Safety in Motion Award. This year’s nominees are an esteemed group of individuals who continually strive to increase safety for their fleets and the public. They represent some of the most respected professionals in heavy-duty industries. The awardee will be announced at the upcoming 2017 World of Concrete in Las Vegas, January 17-20.
Safety in heavy-duty industries has surged ahead in 2016 thanks to new innovations and technologies that have taken collision mitigation to the most advanced level yet. As our understanding of collisions and how to avoid them deepens, this momentum will continue with the goal of saving as many lives as possible.
Recently, we’ve seen higher levels of technological sophistication in the autonomous applications of U.S. Army tactical vehicles. Over the course of the next decade, the Army predicts that assistant drivers will no longer be needed in manned war vehicles, and only a few years beyond that the main driver will also be able to stay behind on missions. Imagine the lives that will be saved on the battlefields.
PRECO Electronics is accepting nominations for the 2016 Safety in Motion Award. Now in its sixth year, the annual Safety in Motion Award is the most widely recognized and anticipated award among heavy-duty safety professionals.
Keep your eyes on the prize. That’s easier said than done—especially when driving—even when that prize is your very life. Recent research indicates that some type of distraction is present during 52 percent of normal driving—and distracted driving can be nearly as dangerous as driving drunk.
In a new three-year, nation-wide, naturalistic driving study involving 3,500 participants, researchers report that the risk of having a crash involving injury or property damage doubles when distracted. In fact, 68 percent of crashes involved a distraction of some kind. And an estimated 36 percent of all motor vehicle crashes could be avoided if distractions were out of the picture.
For heavy-duty trucking, one annual event stands out as the ultimate showcase of the big rigs, businesses, and breakthroughs that are moving the whole world forward. Called the “three biggest days in trucking,” the Mid-America Trucking Show took over Louisville, KY in a big-time event that drew in nearly 75,000 attendees from all 50 states and 67 countries.
Preco was there to soak it all in, and we wanted to give you a quick run-down of the new trucking technology buzzing around the expo center.
The men and women who work in the utility industry encounter safety issues many of us don’t even realize exist. For this reason, Preco Electronics has declared March Utility Safety Month to raise awareness and help prevent fatalities and injuries associated within the utility industry.
During Utility Safety Month we will be discussing best safety practices, focusing on utility specific safety concerns, examining safety technology solutions, and more.
World of Concrete is the top event for concrete and masonry professionals and this year’s show was the largest in seven years. With over 60,000 attendees and 1,500 exhibitors, the show grew substantially from its 2015 numbers.
Not only are attendees able to check out the latest equipment offerings, concrete, construction, and engineering professionals are also able to take care of their continuing education while attending the show. From interactive workshops and specialized seminars to hands-on skill-building sessions, World of Concrete’s world-class education program equips field personnel, project leaders, supervisors and owners with the latest knowledge in every facet of the professional concrete business.
