In 2018 alone there were 5,250 worker deaths in the United States – that’s more than 14 workers per day that didn’t make it home from their jobs. About one third of these deaths are the result of falls and roughly another 30% result from other types of impact – whether from vehicles, equipment, or other objects.
In workplace accidents, emergency response time can mean the difference between life and death. But what happens if there’s nobody around to call for help? Even if workers are taking precautions not to work alone, there are incidents every year where multiple employees are injured in an accident.
SafeTrack can help to accelerate the time to respond to such emergencies. The wearable device, equipped with an accelerometer, can detect impact such as a fall from height or when a worker is struck by an object. In such cases, SafeTrack can vibrate to alert the wearer that a significant impact has been detected and if the wearer does not dismiss the alarm as a false alarm, SafeTrack will automatically send an alert to the predetermined contact that an emergency has been detected. Because SafeTrack is equipped with state of the art beacon technology and GPS, it can also transmit the wearer’s precise indoor and outdoor location to assist emergency responders. In cases where other types of emergencies have occurred, the wearer can activate the emergency alert button to send out these alerts as well.
