This week we’ll be at the Safety & Health Expo, London, where we’ll be talking to industry leaders about how Bodytrak is helping improve worker wellbeing in a range of environments, and answering the questions we get asked about the most:
How can Bodytrak help improve health and safety in my organisation? Bodytrak has been specifically designed to reduce worker risk and mitigate severe injury or illness. By tracking physiological signs, Bodytrak can immediately alert control teams if an individual worker is at risk of a number of, for example: excessive physiological strain (PSI), temperature-related injuries (hyper- and hypo- thermia), cardiac strain, falls, reduced levels of consciousness, extreme fatigue, high levels of noise exposure, and other long term medical conditions. This allows for early warning and intervention, which are essential to preventing injury and reducing the likelihood of serious health risk.
Can Bodytrak also help reduce costs?Global industry is losing hundreds of billions per year due to health and safety risks. For example, $115 billion per year is lost in costs related to noise induced hearing loss (NIHL). The oil and gas extraction, mining, and utilities sectors combined lose $21.7 billion due to heat stress and another $28 billion due to falls. Bodytrak alerts to physiological risks or injury, resulting in the prevention or reduction of injury or long term illness. Therefore, in the longer term, Bodytrak can help reduce costs associated with fines, compensation, lost productivity or long term sickness absence, private litigation and even insurance premiums. We believe that by preventing injury and illness, Bodytrak can provide net savings of between $1500 to $3000 per employee per year.
How would our workforce use Bodytrak? Much like a headphone, Bodytrak, sits unobtrusively in the ear, in order to track a range of vital signs accurately and in real time. If an abnormality is detected, an automated audio and visual alert is immediately sent from the device to a remote control centre. This allows health and safety managers to ensure the appropriate intervention is implemented quickly. The device also works seamlessly with other technologies such as in-ear radios and communications systems. The automated and intuitive experience of an in-ear device means minimal training is required for each worker, resulting in high adoption rates.
Bodytrak can help workers across a range of industries - from transport and logistics to construction, oil and gas, mining, energy and utilities.
