Green Seatbelt Flashing Beacon

Is a green Flashing Seatbelt Beacon required on UK construction sites?

A green flashing seatbelt beacon is a safety device required on many UK construction sites and designed to alert other road users and workers to the presence of a vehicle or piece of equipment operated by someone wearing a seatbelt.

The beacon is mounted outside the plant equipment. It flashes green when the seatbelt is worn, effectively promoting seatbelts and improving safety in construction sites, plant hire operations, and other similar environments. Wearing a seatbelt is a critical safety measure that can help reduce the risk of serious injury or death in an accident, collision, or rollover.

It’s important to note that local laws and regulations may regulate the use of seatbelt beacons. In most cases, a seatbelt beacon may be required by law when operating plant equipment. It’s always best to check with the local authorities to determine the specific requirements for using seatbelt beacons on-site in your area.

Overall, using a green flashing seatbelt beacon is a crucial safety measure that can help promote seatbelts and improve safety in plant hire operations and construction sites.
