How Connected Safety Technology Can Streamline Your Workplace
In a recent survey, 42% of organizations reported investing in connected safety technology. And 39% said they plan to do so in the next 12 months. Level 3 and 4 buildings can be more efficient with connected safety technology, but many companies also want to use it for their workers. Here’s how this works for a safer workplace.
Automatic shut-off is a technology that automatically shuts down equipment when it has been inactive for some time. This can help prevent accidents, fires, and injuries in the workplace and on the road.
- Remote monitoring allows you to keep an eye on your equipment from anywhere.
- It’s beneficial if you’re away from the office, and it can allow you to monitor your equipment even when you are not there.
- You can use remote monitoring for any equipment, including cameras, heaters, refrigerators, and more!
GPS tracking can be used to track employees, vehicles, and assets. For example, if your company has a fleet of cars and trucks that are allowed on the road only when they have a driver behind the wheel, you may want to use GPS technology to track where each vehicle is at all times.
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are two different types of wireless communication. A personal area network (PAN) is a small area, such as your home or office, where you can wirelessly connect devices to each other. Bluetooth works in the same way, but it also allows you to send information from one device to another within a larger range than just your local area network (LAN).
Notifications can be sent to specific people or groups of people. For example, you could send an email notification when there’s a fire in the building and ask employees to evacuate immediately.
Or maybe you want everyone who works at your company onsite at the same time every day (Monday–Friday) but doesn’t want them wandering around aimlessly during their lunch breaks. You could also send text messages with safety reminders such as “please don’t cross this line without permission” or “don’t linger near this area.”
Connected safety technology can make workplaces easier to manage and safer.
- Less time spent on paperwork: With connected safety technology, there’s no need to spend hours filling out forms or documents by hand. Instead, you’ll be able to send notifications straight from your computer or mobile device directly into the system without having to manually input data into a spreadsheet or database. This means less time spent on paperwork and more time focused on running your business efficiently!
- Easier tracking of workers: When using connected safety technology, it’s easy for employers to track their employees’ whereabouts at all times—from anywhere in the world where Internet access is available (which is most places). The same goes for contractors who work for large organizations such as construction companies or retailers; these types of businesses often use GPS systems when managing their workforce as well as providing other valuable services such as warehouse management systems that help improve productivity levels across departments within larger organizations like these two examples above.
