Moving Safety Forward Since 1947

By Matt Wood on January 5, 2018

A Brief History

Founded in 1947, PRECO Electronics has become a worldwide leader in heavy-duty safety innovation. PRECO patented the world’s first electronic backup alarm as a result of watching utility employees on dam sites. Ed Peterson, PRECO’s founder, noticed that accidents were frequently happening while heavy equipment was operating in reverse. The flaggers used at the time weren’t safe because the equipment blind spots were too massive.

Safety Innovation in the Waste Industry

By Aaron Benick on November 2, 2017

Waste continues to be an undervalued and misunderstood industry. What the public neglects to realize is that it keeps society as we know it moving. They also don’t realize the efforts that go on behind the scenes to comply with a vast number of regulations and initiatives to keep people safe.

A growing economy means better jobs, higher wages, lower gas prices, and more vehicles on the road.

This has led to a 14% increase of roadway fatalities, the biggest two-year jump in more than five decades and the National Safety Council has indicated that the costs associated with these accidents have reached $242 billion economically and $871 billion societally.

These factors have a significant impact on heavy-duty industries, including waste.
