Process Safety Beacons: Preventing Accidents

September 24, 2018

Accidents can be really hard to prevent, we all know that accidents are very unpredictable. The most common places where accidents happen is on the road, factories, construction sites, industries, and more.

One of the most effective preventions of these, or at least help lessen the damages and casualties is by using a visual and audible warning signal such as a beacon or sounder. These loud colourful beacons can help catch attention immediately and save lives.

What is a Safety Beacon?

A Safety Beacon is a type of warning light that lights up when required to draw attention, and can sometimes produce loud, wailing noises when combined with a sounder. This is to immediately grab the attention of the people and make them aware of the current danger.

Safety beacons are usually installed for evacuation purposes, to warn workers of an imminent danger, and that immediate evacuation is required.

Safety beacons don’t actually prevent accidents from happening, but they help prevent the casualty from getting bigger. Aside from warning and telling the people to evacuate the building, the beacons can also catch the attention of firefighters and police officers.

Where Can You Find a Safety Beacon?

Deegee safety beacons can be found through most Electrical Wholesalers, or directly through our offices based in Swadlincote.
