HOW TO SAFELY RUN JOB SITES DURING A PANDEMIC?
Project Director at BESIX
“Construction and infrastructure projects have to accommodate hundreds, and in some cases, several thousand workers. Having the capacity to monitor the geolocation of each and every worker will provide management teams with valuable information in terms of improving both workers’ health & safety, and efficiency in the workplace.
Each sensor located on-site has the capacity to provide information about temperature and humidity, allowing our HSE management teams to take real-time measures with respect to workers’ safety, particularly with respect to monitoring heat stress. Having a platform like WakeCap in our project has provided us with valuable information on workforce geolocation trends, allowing our teams to take improvement measures on the project’s logistics, especially in terms of optimization of site access, location of welfare facilities, and vertical transportation.
In the current situation, through WakeCap, we can get historical data on workers’ movements if a worker tests positive for Covid-19”
Why We Are Different
WakeCap's integrated solution uses ANSI-compliant helmets with a robust, durable, built-in ratchet that's ATEX-, RED-, ROHS-, and FCC-certified. WakeCap’s data collection solution allows safety officers to ascertain which zones laborers currently occupy in order to ensure potential evacuations run smoothly, and help keep workers safe.
What keeps WakeCap a step ahead of the competition is that WakeCap realizes the importance of not depending on workers for upkeeping the solution. For example, many companies depend on hundreds or even thousands of workers to remember to charge their equipment every 24 hours. WakeCap has designed its sensors with a battery life that lasts up to one year without the need for daily charging, so that workers can focus on their work.
60,000 POTENTIALLY FATAL ACCIDENTS OCCUR AT CONSTRUCTION SITES ANNUALLY – ALL OVER THE WORLD. BUT OUR CLIENTS AREN’T PART OF THAT STATISTIC.
