|The health and safety advisor on-site was concerned over the control of mobile plant keys.
To address this, a key cabinet was installed as a control point for the mobile plant keys. This was found to be difficult to manage as there are potentially many drivers for the same piece of mobile plant.
The quarry supervisor suggested a driver identification system called ‘didBOX’. Following a successful trial, the system has been installed on all front end loaders on the site.
Each authorised driver is issued with a key fob programmed with their identification number and the category of vehicle that they are allowed to drive.
The system limits access to approved drivers and records usage by operator, date and time.
