These fatalities and injuries add up: fatal injuries alone are estimated to cost the United States $5 billion per year in health care, lost income, reduced quality of life, and lost production. The total annual cost of all construction injuries adds up to more than $11.5 billion, and workers’ compensation claims for non-fatal falls account for $2.5 billion per year.
Addressing worksite safety head-on
Innovative thinking, as well as a commitment to safety from the entire construction community are crucial to prevent worksite injuries and fatalities. Imagine a digital ecosystem that could manage jobsite safety using customizable wearables and software, real-time monitoring and a built-in alert system with sensors like sounds, vibrations and flashing lights. It’s what TraceSafe’s SafeSite solution offers, along with a privacy-first approach that complies with even the most stringent regulations.
SafeSite in a nutshell
Fleet safety and efficiency. No fleet check-in/check-out sheets. IoT devices help site managers know which worker is using which vehicle. Additional IoT sensors help administrators understand engine hours, truck location, mileage, and geofences.
Underground machinery and asset tracking. BLE devices, in combination with gateways, tell operations managers who is underground and which machinery/assets they have with them.
Location analytics tool. With IoT, safety managers can spot areas with high traffic to better route movement across mining sites. Restricted access alerts and proximity alerts to heavy equipment help location managers improve safety and efficiency on the worksite.
Customizable wearables with sensors and alerts. Depending on each jobsite’s requirements, wearable sensors can be placed on helmets, lanyards, equipment, wrists – anywhere they’re needed. And with customizable alerts like flashing lights, sounds, vibrations and more, workers won’t miss a thing.
Oil Search, a responsible energy company in Papua New Guinea, has also invested in TraceSafe’s wearable solution, which included high-capacity BLE beacons, a cloud platform, and wearable tech that ensures the health and safety of employees, contractors and visitors.
