Utilizing Technology for Safer Road Closures
Nashville Tenn. Feb. 8, 2021 — Crowe Overwatch TN Security has utilized innovative technology that makes road closures safer for the people working on the site. The company will be the first to implement the Guardian SmartFlagger technology in the state of Tennessee. The Guardian SmartFlagger is an automated barrier gate that can be raised or lowered by an operator using a tablet. The cameras on the Guardian SmartFlagger allow an operator to see and control up to four road closures at a time. The system also has an alarm that will alert all workers on site of illegal vehicle intrusions.
The Guardian SmartFlagger system will increase the safety of the Flaggers on site as well as increase efficiency of road closure procedures. It is quick to set up, and more cost efficient to run due to the fact 1 operator can control more than 1 lane. Tennessee has seen 2 deaths of Flaggers due to traffic related injuries in the past month, it is a sad risk that workers face when on the job. Anything that makes for a safer work environment is a good thing.
“The safety of the workers on site and our Flaggers is just as important as keeping the people driving safe. This technology is a great way to decrease traffic related injuries. I am pleased to incorporate Guardian SmartFlagger into our traffic and flagging division. ” Said Mr. Joshua Crowe, COO of Crowe Overwatch TN Security.
