Miller Ingenuity was selected to supply ZoneGuard, their electronic roadway worker protection system, for the Bay Area Rapid Transit’s (BART) mainline track in compliance with CPUC GO 175-A to warn track workers and equipment operators of trains approaching on adjacent tracks.
BART chose the ZoneGuard portable system kit, which includes train-detector modules, train-alert modules, and worker wearable devices. The portable kit is engineered to be lightweight, weighing under 5 lb, and flexible enough to easily set up and transport to multiple jobsites.
With the purchase of ZoneGuard, BART has fulfilled California’s state requirement for transit agencies to comply with roadway worker protection rules defined in General Order NO. 175-A. One of those rules requires agencies to adopt “early warning alarm technology” to coincide with their existing protection procedures.
“Our customers want to protect their workers and ensure they come home safe to their families,” said Kevin Smith, senior vice president, Global Sales and Marketing, for Miller Ingenuity. “BART’s inclusion of our secondary warning system into their existing safety procedures will help eliminate human error factors that are known to contribute to near misses and tragic accidents. This will result in a safer and more productive working environment for BART employees.”
