Reversing and backing up with trucks is so dangerous that it should be avoided whenever possible. For work safety reasons, first and foremost forward motion should be scheduled when planning waste collection routes.
Modern assistant systems may relieve some of the dangers for workers and pedestrians that are associated with sometimes unavoidable reversing maneuvers.
This conference aims at discussing the dangers and the current legal situation with relevant interest groups and identifying potential solutions and best practice examples. Representatives of the waste collection trade e.g., from unions, enterprises, manufacturers and research institutions as well as other stakeholders from communities, authorities, accident insurance institutions together with other experts are invited to the BG Verkehr headquarters at Hamburg, Germany.
