Direct Vision Standard (DVS) Blind Spot Kit 2

What is Direct Vision Scheme?

Transport for London (TFL) have released its HGV safety permit guidance in reference to phase one of the new legislation. This comes into effect from March 2021 for all vehicles over 12 tonnes. Operators must start applying for permits in October 2019.

HGVs will be categorised depending on the level of a driver’s direct vision from a cab and will then be given a rating between ‘zero-star’ (lowest) and ‘five-star’ (highest).
The minimum requirement for HGVs increases from ‘one-star’ to ‘three-star’ in 2024, TFL has committed to consulting on the progressive Safe System requirements in 2022.

Vehicle blind spots are a huge contributory factor in collisions in all industries. The substantial height and length of many vehicles and machines greatly limit driver visibility. Operator positions, bodywork panels, absent rear windows and bulkheads all create further restrictions.

Our wide range of on-road and off-road applications meet a host of requirements and needs. They can help eliminate blind spots to prevent expensive vehicle damage and ultimately save lives.

The following, high quality/specification, cameras and monitors can be combined to produce the ideal system, whether for safety/FORS/CLOCS compliancy, or to meet other operational requirements.

Our cameras, audible alarms and sensor systems can provide vital evidence against claims, provide drivers with all-round vision, help increase the size of opportunities a company can bid for and provide peace of mind for fleet managers and operators. It is fantastic as a stand-alone system or as an enhancement to your existing telematics systems.

We understand the stress and strain becoming compliant can have on a company, therefore we are at hand to help you understand the terminology in the handbook. ‘Should’, ‘Shall’ and ‘May’ are all commonly mentioned throughout the FORS and Direct Vision standard. This can cause confusion for the company.

How can it benefit you?

  • Evidence against insurance claims
  • Peace of mind for drivers and fleet managers
  • Prevent accidents and personal injury
  • Manoeuvre safely
  • Enhance blind spot vision
