Cat Detect For Personnel:
Defend the Danger Zone

It's never been easy to prevent contact between equipment and people on the ground. But now there's technology that can add a layer of protection to your existing safety processes. With Cat Detect for Personnel, part of Cat Technology, ground workers or visitors wear safety vests or hard hats equipped with Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags. Other assets and potential hazards on the ground can also be tagged.

Hard Hat and Vest



5,000

The Driver Safety System (DSS) is installed in more than 5,000 heavy equipment and light vehicles.



Driver Safety System (DSS):
Manage Fatigue and Distraction

Fatigued or distracted operators can make mistakes that have devastating consequences. But even if your company never experiences an incident that involves major injuries or loss of life, distraction and fatigue can lead to accidents, equipment abuse and property damage. Productivity and component life may also decline. And fuel usage may increase along with absenteeism, health care and workers' compensation costs.

8 MILLION

The DSS has logged more than 8 million hours of operating data.



It's not just about the technology

Tools like Cat Detect for Personnel and the DSS give you an unprecedented level of visibility to risk, putting you in a stronger position to mitigate and manage it. But they're just one aspect of an effective risk management system. Whether your priority is reducing contact between people and machines or managing fatigue and distraction – or both – many other factors affect your ability to succeed.
