The traditional waste management site is changing. As machines and computers take over roles once completed by human hands, security systems must evolve to meet the needs of new, automated environments.
The need for updated systems is based on various factors, not least the fact that as a human presence on waste management sites starts to reduce, the need for technology that can rapidly and accurately identify a flame increases.
There’s also the fact that there is a shift towards privatisation of waste management sites. Business owners who now manage the sites assume total responsibility for all and any incidents, including fire.
The need for next-generation security systems is no longer just about protecting human life and business assets, it’s about protecting individuals from damaging legal action.
What does the waste management sector need from CCTV security?
- Fire Surveillance – Waste management sites are high-risk locations for fire making early detection critical.
- Continuous surveillance – Because of a high fire risk and reduced human presence, CCTV needs to be recording 24/7 and achieve total site coverage.
- Compensation Prevention – Waste management sites are busy places with a mix of machinery, vehicles and personnel operating at the same time. Companies need to invest in high quality CCTV in order to most reliably document accidents should they occur.
- CCTV on vehicles – Waste management sites use a number of vehicles which perform often dangerous work. Installing cameras on them adds further protection against potential legal action and allows for thorough investigations should an incident occur. (opportunity for TransVu?)
