PRECO Electronics®, the global leader in medium- and heavy-duty collision avoidance solutions, today announced its involvement in this year’s premiere international solid waste conference, WASTECON® 2017. Located in Booth #1408, PRECO will be displaying its PreView® Sentry, Side Defender, PreView® Plus, as well as its cache of new camera and monitor offerings. The combination of PRECO’s flexible radar systems monitors blind spots on the rear and sides vehicle, and actively warns operators with audible and visual alerts to help avoid potential collisions – improving operational safety and efficiency.
WASTECON® 2017, hosted by the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA), is concurrently taking place this year with the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA) World Congress at the Baltimore Convention Center September 25-27th.
The waste and recycling industry is particularly susceptible to severe accidents, resulting in property damage, injuries and even loss of life. In the first six months of 2017 alone, SWANA reported that 51 people lost their lives in solid waste-related incidents, including 15 employees and 36 members of the public. The repercussions from these accidents can be significant, considering costs associated with legal fees, vehicle repairs, and insurance premiums. Additionally, considering waste and recycling companies’ unique relationship with the public, accidents can have a lasting negative impact on company goodwill and public image.
Dave Biderman, SWANA CEO and Executive Director shared, “PRECO continues to be an ally of SWANA and a valuable partner to the waste and recycling industry. I am looking forward to sharing the stage with PRECO and other key industry executives to ensure that the audience is well versed in what is available from an education and technology perspective and the value it means to improve safety onsite. By eliminating blind spots and actively engaging operators, the industry is going to be safer for both workers and the public.”
