Safety Equipment Enforcement at Truck Yards & Other Facilities
In a busy trucking facility or large industrial site, there are a lot of things happening at once. The potential for accidents and even injuries is ever-present. While accident avoidance is the best outcome, ensuring that all staff and visitors are wearing proper safety equipment will reduce the risk of injury should the worst happen. Ensuring that these policies are followed requires safety equipment enforcement.
With the size of some truck yards, it’s almost impossible for onsite supervisory staff to see what every employee is doing or wearing at any given time. Without the ability to be everywhere at once, is there a way for a Site Supervisor to get a helping hand?
Employee Monitoring Tools
Live video monitoring ensures that a property is safe and secure. These systems work by using monitored video cameras, two-way speaker systems, and other security tools to give remote agents the ability to watch over every inch of a property. They allow for true, comprehensive monitoring of an entire site. While a person on site can’t possibly be everywhere at once, monitoring station staff can if they’re using the right technology.
Birdseye Security Solutions is a North American leader in remote monitoring solutions. When Birdseye’s systems are installed in a facility, agents can supervise all activity across the entire yard perimeter and interior, 24/7.
They have the ability to see in many places at once, and in more than just a passive capacity. Unmonitored cameras can record what happens at a site, but these systems don’t allow for interactions, nor provide any way to improve a situation before it escalates into something worse.
With live remote monitoring, Birdseye agents will watch for infractions to client safety policies and intervene using Voice-Down™. This state-of-the-art two-way communication system lets monitoring agents communicate directly with those on site. If agents notice that someone is not wearing their reflective safety vest, for example, they can use Voice-Down™ to prompt them to do so.
By reminding onsite employees to utilize proper protective equipment and/or to follow safety procedures, many potential incidents can be avoided. The result is a safer, more efficient site.
Over time, knowing that agents are observing the yard, employees typically get into the habit of always wearing safety equipment and following proper procedures. It is not unusual for agents to observe an experienced employee reminding a new person to wear their equipment even before agents have the chance to intervene.
The Benefits of Remote Video Monitoring for Safety Equipment Enforcement
A live remote monitoring system is a powerful tool that can increase safety and security at a truck yard or other large facility, such as a warehouse or industrial site.
Some benefits of remote video monitoring include:
- A significant decrease in incidents of employees not following safety protocols, reducing their risk of injury
- A reduction of injury is a reduction in risk, and when safety inspectors or insurance adjusters visit, they love seeing a truck yard with every employee wearing PPE
- Employees also appreciate the reminders! They know proper equipment keeps them safe, and rarely are they not using their PPE intentionally. They value their safety too and will appreciate that their employer is proactively concerned about their welfare
Monitoring services can be installed so agents can view an entire property, no matter how large. By strategically positioning cameras throughout the site, Birdseye Security Agents can see everything that’s going on and respond quickly and effectively to resolve situations before they escalate into larger issues.

Safety Protocol Reporting
In addition to monitoring a property, Birdseye Agents – assisted by intelligent technology – log all details related to the inappropriate use of safety equipment and/or employees not adhering to safety protocols. All interventions by agents with employees are noted, as well as the employee’s response.
Detailed reports are distributed to clients on a regular schedule. Upon request, video footage of incidents can be pulled from archives.
This not only holds everyone on site accountable for their actions, but if a safety incident does occur, it’s easy to see exactly what happened and who was involved. This can help strengthen training processes and improve safety protocols for the entire organization.
