AiRISTA’s 2-way communicating personnel tags provide rapid response to employee duress situations. Patented firmware controlling an embedded accelerometer detects a fall, motionless, and position to help distinguish from false positive alerts.
When a workplace incident occurs, not only will a business face liability for the employee, contractor, or even visitor involved but failing to become promptly aware of an injury could carry more devastating results. AiRISTA personnel tags feature motion detection functionality designed to help identify when wearers are immobilized resulting from an accident or attack. Tags also have a switch to send an alert when employees are in duress. Patented software algorithms are used calculate the victims location and alert authorities instantly. The motion sensor functionality of AiRISTA RTLS’s safety solutions are highly customizable to drive detection and alerting responses across a wide range of use cases. Whether operating in an underground mine, a six-story hospital, or on a college campus, AiRISTA’s personnel safety alerting works wherever there is Wi-Fi or BLE coverage. There are even options for GPS and cellular networks. In addition to the many features of AiRISTA’s safety solution, including user-initiated duress signaling, there are three, combinable modes that can be customized to enhance on site safety: motion stagnant, man down, and man down with tilt.
Keeping track of contractors when they come on the site can be challenging. Contractors might be needed for maintenance of equipment or inspections. Other contractors might be extensions of your workforce whose time accounting helps drive worker efficiency. By assigning personnel tags to contractors, employers can help ensure they stay in designated areas, or conversely stay out of other areas. Personnel tags can also track the efficiency of contractors for payroll purposes. Two-way communication with the tag allows text messages to be sent to alert contractors when they are in unauthorized areas and software programmable buttons allow for a response.
Underground mines are some of the most dangerous work environments. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, mining fatalities are 6 times higher than the rate in private industry. When accidents do occur, there are procedures to assemble employees in predefined mustering areas. The AiRISTA personnel tags provide not only an automated headcount for people in the mustering area, but it can determine which individuals are not in the mustering area. The missing individuals can be located and tracked. Messages can be delivered to their tags to request their status, “press the red button if you need help, press the blue button if you are ok”. The tags can be sewn into clothing or embedded within the hard hat.
