WCCTV Body Worn Cameras support highway workers by enhancing their safety and capturing high-quality video evidence.
With their unique forward-facing screen, our body cameras are proven to deter the verbal and physical assaults that highway workers frequently encounter.
The footage taken from the cameras can be used to support prosecutions and also to review safe working practices and training purposes.
The Benefits of Body Cameras for Highways Workers
Road workers are subjected to unacceptable abuse ranging from verbal threats to physical attacks and life-threatening vehicle incursions daily.
These incidents have risen sharply, with 330 reported in 2020, almost one a day.
Incidents occur on every type of road, ranging from reports of highway workers being spat at, verbally abused, having objects thrown at them, and being physically attacked by road users.
These direct threats are in addition to the rise in vehicle incursions, where motorist frustrations often lead to drivers deliberately breaching safety zones and putting roadworkers' lives at risk.
WCCTV's body cameras have been deployed for multiple highway applications. In conjunction with other safety measures, they are shown to have a transformative impact on shielding roadworkers from aggression and attacks.
Key benefits of WCCTV's body cameras in a highway setting include:
Deterrence and de-escalation of threatening and aggressive behaviour towards workers
Improved confidence of the workforce in dealing with public interactions
High-quality video evidence of any incidents to support prosecutions
Reduction in complaints and false allegations
Video recording in areas not covered by traditional CCTV
Footage for retrospective review of safety measures/training purposes
