Zonegreen Provides Sidings Protection at Local Depot

Hitachi Rail’s depot in Doncaster is improving its already excellent safety measures and standards, courtesy of Sheffield-based experts, Zonegreen, to ensure staff enjoy enhanced protection, no matter where they are working.

Zonegreen’s siding warning system alerts personnel to imminent train movements, allowing them to reach a position of safety. Inbound vehicles are detected by a treadle switch that activates beacon sounders, providing audible and visual warnings to staff. Outbound movement alerts can be activated from either a local control panel or remotely from the Person in Charge office.

Christian Fletcher, Zonegreen’s technical director, said:

“Hitachi Rail has asked us to install this standalone system to ensure it can balance operational and personnel obligations and the result has enhanced the safety mechanisms already in place at Doncaster, where trains move slowly and quietly. Therefore any solutions than can improve safety in the working environment are always worth installing.”

Zonegreen enjoys a longstanding relationship with Hitachi Rail, having installed its flagship Depot Personnel Protection System (DPPS) in the maintenance shed at Doncaster Carr in 2016. The siding warnings will compliment existing personnel protection, increasing safety in all areas of the facility.
