Truck blind spots are one of the key contributors to heavy vehicle related incidents because many road users are often ignorant to them. Similarly for the driver, they may be aware of them and provided a range of tools to try and reduce the risk remains.

For Hanson they decided to take a simple but new approach and what they found was not all blind spots are the same. Hanson used a drone to map the blind spots of each of their vehicles and then share them with their drivers. Now drivers know where their blind spots are.

So to do Hanson customers. Where Hanson frequently make delivery or are loaded the loading areas have the blind spot areas marked on the ground as no go areas when the driver is in the cab and the truck running.

A simple low cost approach to reducing risk and sharing the responsibility for safety.
