Monitoring worker safety in real-time

Page last modified
April 11 2024

The Personal Safety Monitoring System has been designed to:

  • monitor in real time a worker and their environment 
  • from one handheld personal safety monitoring device
  • feed live data analytics directly to the control room and
  • alert on potentially dangerous situations before they become an incident
  • therefore, allow proactive decision making
  • suit business needs and compliance standards thanks to customisable features & multi-language settings

The Australia, Europe & the US Patented Technology monitors:  

  • Air quality / gas sensing - LEL, O2, H2S, & CO
  • Location sensing anywhere - indoor, outdoor and underground
  • Slips, trips and falls / man down events
  • Ambient air temperature (heat stress)
  • Ambient noise level
  • Speed over ground
  • Biometric condition allowing fitness for tasks monitoring 
  • Additional BLE paired site-specific sensors, e.g.: hydrogen
  • The device also has real time communication through voice calls & text messaging

Real-Time Data Streaming & Analytics:

  • Data is recorded live and sent back to the control room via our Universal Data Interface (UDI) smart alert & navigation system
  • Data is sent via the client's server, or cloud, and viewed in real time through the easy-to-read control room interface
  • The interface can be viewed from multiple locations in the world, giving local and remote oversight of all workers' safety


Pros & Limitations
Real-time data streaming and analytics
Live communication through voice calls (Cellular) and Push-to-Talk (Mesh)
Instant messaging for communicating to multiple devices simultaneously from a single operator
Easy data visualisation through historical trends & heat mapping to allow proactive decision making
Multiple gas detection: CO, O2, H2S, LEL
Location sensing: find a worker's location indoor, outdoor & underground
Slips, trips & falls: recognise falls from heights & man down events
Biometric monitoring: heart-rate, core temperature, respiratory rate, fatigue, blood oxygen monitors and panic button
BLE Bluetooth Low Energy sensor pairing of up to 6 devices
Permissioned data access to maintain top security whilst not breaching confidentiality
Additional features and functions increase size and weight in comparison to gas detectors
