John Burns Construction Company (JBCC) selected Miller Ingenuity to supply its roadway worker protection system.
The purchase of the safety system will support JBCC’s core value of protecting the wellbeing of its employees by achieving and maintaining a safe workplace.
After experiencing several near misses from trains entering their active work zones at high rates of speed, JBCC purchased ZoneGuard portable kits to provide employees with a secondary layer of protection while performing work on the rails. The kit includes train detection and alert modules that incorporates Miller’s train detection technologies that provide users with consistent and accurate alerts through the kit’s wearable devices. The lightweight and portable solution will give JBCC employees flexibility and a safer and more productive working environment.
“It’s becoming more apparent that additional safety measures are needed to protect our railway workers,” said Kevin Smith, senior vice president of global sales and marketing, Miller Ingenuity. “The industry’s current safety rules just aren’t enough. We applaud the John Burns Construction Company for proactively engaging with us to provide their employees with a product that fits their core values and creates a robust safety solution.”
