By fitting cameras to mobile plant and equipment, HBG Civiel has made it possible for the drivers to keep an eye on the blind spot.

Following an extensive trial, in which loading shovels, hydraulic cranes and trucks were fitted with cameras, the group company intends to equip more of its plant with similar devices. HBG Civiel is pioneering the introduction of these safety systems in the Netherlands. Their installation should lead to fewer accidents, improve working conditions and result in less damage to equipment.
