Preco Electronics President & CEO
As it should be, safety is a hot topic. The question is not how much can we talk about safety but what can we actually do to keep people safe? As companies continue to invest in keeping their teams and fleets safe, I can’t help but wonder what more needs to be done.
What can be done to remove complacency and keep workers fully engaged in their surroundings? I believe it comes down to creating a strong safety culture, continued safety training, and making safety personal. It’s about going home at the end of every day to your loved ones.
Making safety personal is our job. As a company, PRECO strives to provide the best blind spot monitoring safety products for heavy-duty industries and we take great pride in the quality of our products. We know and understand that streets and worksites are bustling with activity and our safety technologies help create better situational awareness and keep drivers and people on the ground safe.
With the change of seasons upon us, I would like to propose that we all make a concerted effort to keep safety in the forefront. Slow down. Put down the phone while driving. Look in the rear view mirror one more time before backing. As a whole, we are all functioning in overdrive and maybe it’s time for us to take a step back and focus on what’s important. It’s important to be productive. But it’s more important to do things the right way. Follow safety procedures and don’t take shortcuts. A shortcut in the name of productivity is never worth the risk of injury or death.

Vision Zero: Coming to a Major City Near You
Ask safety experts what makes American roads so dangerous and they tend to reduce it down to three simple words: belts, booze, and speed. Of course, there are other contributors to traffic deaths. An improving economy has more people commuting to work by car. Mobile technology has led to a serious spike in distracted driving. And, in many parts of the U.S., a crumbling infrastructure makes the simple act of driving more dangerous. But those three perennial problems are the main causes behind a shocking 14% increase in traffic deaths in America from 2015 to 2017—amounting to more than 40,000 deaths per year.
This unfortunate trend has left government agencies at all levels and in many countries scrambling to find solutions. Many of them are turning to Vision Zero.
