“The feedback from the staff has been extremely positive. They are the first staff out on track and the last back in, in extremely dark and complex locations.
This has been a great help allowing train drivers to see our staff from a far greater distance and allowing the driver to sound a courtesy warning. They are now in a situation where both staff and driver are aware of each other’s presence.
Prior to using FHOSS, this never happened during darkness, quieter trains, CWR and un-visible staff at night all contributed to staff not being seen and unaware of any approaching trains on adjacent lines.
All staff have said that they feel safer whilst at work undertaking their duties. All in all a great product which has enhanced the safety and well being of our staff.
“Pilot Tool van from Hanson now working in the Bedford area with one of Hanson Central Gangs. Great feedback from client and the public. All new Hanson Contracting vans will come equipped with FHOSS Illuminated vehicle wrap.”
“FHOSS were promoted as Innovation of the month, and comment from one of the traffic marshals as follows; “I certainly feel safer, particularly when I have to suspend the public highway to allow HGV’s to enter the site””
“FHOSS Safety wear met our high expectations. When wearing FHOSS, the operator could be seen one and a half miles down the track. In complete darkness, normal PPE could not be seen at all.”
“We’ve been working closely with FHOSS Technology to develop this product for use by road workers in what will be a first for Scotland. The health and safety of our employees is of paramount importance to Scotland TranServ. By increasing the visibility of our employees working across the region we are also improving the safety of drivers, ensuring they have the distance to react and slow down ahead of the work area. FHOSS safety wear helps us achieve this aim. “
“When wearing FHOSS, it is really noticeable just how much the boys stand out during hours of darkness. Unfortunately, there are always going to be some areas of our site where ambient light is not available. With FHOSS, however, this doesn’t matter. When wearing their jackets, my men can be seen at all times, with or without the presence of ambient light and from a good distance away – it always surprises me from just how far away I can see my men!
The fact that the batteries are rechargeable is also a real benefit and it means that we don’t need to keep buying new ones. The guys have got into a good routine of charging their batteries after each shift so the jackets are ready for use the following night.
The price of this PPE is very reasonable and is certainly worth the investment if it means that our men are going to be safer.”
“This product is amazingly bright at night. Providing extra protection when working not only on the Highway, but on site in general.”
““I am particularly impressed by the overall construction quality and design of the garments also the opportunity of the trouser hem strips illuminating the ground around your feet lighting every footstep”.”
“They look smarter than the conventional PPE, they feel a better quality and in relation to identification at night, you stand out a bloody mile”
“Your product is simply brilliant.”
