What is the Progressive Safe System?
As part of the Mayor of London’s Vision Zero plan to eliminate all deaths and serious injuries on London’s transport network by 2024, TFL are now proposing an enhancement to the current Direct Vision Standard (DVS) ‘Safe System’ with the introduction of the ‘Progressive Safe System’ (PSS) from October 2024.
To further improve the safety of ALL road users, HGVs over 12T will need to have a minimum of three-star rating or fit the new PSS to operate in Greater London, from 28 October 2024.
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.
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.
