    Green Flashing Beacons

    In Great Britain, for example, flashing lights of this colour are mandatory on vehicles to show that passengers are wearing seat belts. The green flashing light will not appear if you are not wearing your seatbelt.

    You will see the flashing light if you wear a seatbelt! Excavators and other large earthmoving equipment are particularly susceptible to this problem. To make working conditions in this country safer, the government takes this step.

    The Netherlands uses green flashing lights mostly for special situations, investigations, and testing by its emergency services and military units.

    We offer both LED and Xenon light effects for our green flashing beacons. With RS PRO, you can choose from green flashing beacons from a variety of leading brands, including Moflash, Klaxon, Schneider Electric, Clifford Snell, and of course RS PRO itself.

    Types of green beacons

    Typically, green beacons are categorized according to their function or intended use. These are some of the most common green beacon types:

    Airport beacons

    These beacons are used at airports to indicate the presence of aircraft or other vehicles on the runway.

    Port beacons

    These beacons are used at ports to indicate the presence of ships or other vessels in the area.

    Railyard beacons

    These beacons are used at rail yards to indicate the presence of trains or other rail vehicles.

    Construction site beacons

    These beacons are used at construction sites to indicate the presence of heavy machinery or other hazards.

    Emergency vehicle beacons

    These beacons are used on emergency vehicles, such as ambulances and fire trucks, to indicate that the vehicle is responding to an emergency.

    Navigation beacons

    These beacons are used to provide visual cues for navigation, such as marking the location of a specific point or guiding vehicles or pedestrians to a specific location.

    As well as signalling, warning, and guiding the user, green beacons can also be used to provide information. Whenever a green beacon provides instructions or warnings, follow them carefully.

    Green flashing beacons and their uses

    Green flashing beacon car

    Most green flashing beacons we see are on small cars, usually doctors' and veterinarians' vehicles. An emergency patient is indicated by the green flashing beacon. Safety and security are usually indicated by green flashing beacon cars.

    In addition, ambulances use green flashing beacons to indicate that a patient is unlikely to be in a life-threatening situation, otherwise, they would call an ambulance. As opposed to an ambulance, which is exempt from rules of the road, a green beacon indicates a "call out" case.

    Green flashing beacon on digger

    When off-road plant and construction vehicles or machines are being operated, a green flashing beacon indicates a seat belt is being worn. When working on a closed-off road or at the worksite on a closed-off road or area that is no longer regarded as part of the highway, green flashing is used on plant machinery and in diggers. Off-road use of green flashing beacons is prohibited.

    Green flashing on the plant

    Highways England has put in place a set of requirements for raising construction worker safety in 2019. Green beacon lights are also used in plant construction areas to ensure machines are functioning correctly.

    As part of these measures, green beacons were also introduced to indicate whether the operator was wearing a seatbelt. Interestingly, not all machines require these beacons, and Highways England has published a full list of those that do.
