Load Security Purge By Vosa

Vosa Pays Greater Attenetion To Truck Loading and Securing

VOSA & the Health & Safety Executive are pressing hard to prevent trailer unsecured loads. Although most operators think of the goods within the trailer, the Pallet Truck could be classed as an Unsecured Load.

Here at aide automotive ltd we have a simple lock for the pallet truck that will stop goods and curtain damage from a runaway pallet truck!

Also with VOSA & the HSE fining drivers and operators for unsecured loads the Lee Lock will cover the pallet truck’s security.

Lee Lock is designed to lock the pallet truck in place at all times, hence reducing any chance of the truck slamming into other pallets, slashing the curtain side and as the pallet truck slots into the lock, also there’s no chance of any back injury from lifting as a common practice is to lift a truck into a tyre.

Lee Lock has been installed in the Heygates Ltd ‘s trailer fleet, Stuart Lobley commented “With today’s high standards of road safety we have installed the Lock for a few years now, a simple but effective product.”

Richard Cannon of Abacus Transport Ltd Said “With the Lee Lock in place I have peace of mind that if stopped by VOSA we will be compliant, as we are a hazardous product transporter safety is our priority.”

The Pallet Truck Lock – Lee Lock can easily be retro fitted to any trailer, the T Bar Lee Lock Handle is used to secure the Pallet Truck under the floor mounted plates.

On Board Truck Cameras

October 10th, 2013 Comments off
aide automotive offer a range of Incident cameras for trucks, buses, coaches & vans,
On Board Cameras could offer a way of saving many on increasing insurance policies.
Kevin Hopper, Yeardley managing director, said 24-hour continuous recording on the firm’s vehicle would help tackle ‘crash for cash’ fraud.
“It alleviates a lot of the doubt and, in some cases, immediately gives you a get out of jail card when it’s not your driver’s fault,” said Hopper. “With running left-hand drive trucks in the UK and abroad, anything we can do to help our drivers and reduce our insurance premium has got to be a big benefit.”
Hopper said the company has saved £25,900 on insurance costs this year by changing brokers and taking their advice about making changes, one of which was to install CCTV cameras in all the company’s vehicles, including its company cars. Yeardley vehicles are also fitted with lane change warning assist and nearside camera systems.

Truck, Trailer, Rigid & RCV Auto Braking Reversing System From aide automotive ltd

October 3rd, 2013 Comments off

BackStop Trailer & Truck Reversing System is a modern hi tech reversing aide for commercial rigid trucks and trailers.


The BackStop system is an attractive product for transport managers to improve health & safety standards.


Reversing is often the cause of vehicle damage or human injury. Fines have been issued to transport operators for employee injury and high costs in repairs for simple low speed reversing incidents. One incident in 2011 when an employee received crush injuries cost the UK transport operator a total of £15,000 in fines and costs.


For RCV’s aide automotive offer a Radar Sensor system. BackStop The Refuse Vehicle Reversing System automatically applies the brakes when an object such as a person or obstacle is in close proximity to the rear of the vehicle. This is achieved by measuring the phase shift, BackStop Radar can accurately map and detect people or objects behind the vehicle.


The RCV Reversing system only detects a target which is moving towards the sensor, so static parts of the vehicle like bin lifts or parts of bodywork are ignored, even though they may be in front of the sensor. This makes it ideal for Refuse Collection Vehicles or heavy plant with just a single sensor mounted centrally.
