Do you collect personal information about employees?

No. Our wearable core device does not monitor anything biometric/personal/HIPAA covered about the wearer. We are on the upper arm of an employee “looking outward” at the environmental conditions (i.e. ambient air temperature, humidity, air quality, light levels, noise, etc.) that surround him/her.

Do I need to have a dedicated WiFi network to support the MākuSafe equipment?

MākuSafe can use your current Ethernet, WiFi or IoT networks.

As a manager can I be notified when an indicator is detected by a wearable in the MākuSmart platform?  

Yes.  The MākuSmart platform allows dashboard users to select what types of indicators they would like to receive in the form of an SMS (Text) notification. 

Will the device buzz or alert an employee if a hazard is detected?

No. MākuSafe has done extensive research and has chosen to NOT provide feedback directly to the worker.  Instead our focus is on providing leadership with actionable insight/data they can use to resolve a hazard or have a meaningful conversation with workers.  

Where or how do employees wear the MākuSafe device? 

The sensors and associated software algorithms are programmed to assume data is gathered on the upper arm, above the bicep and outside of all clothing.  MākuSafe has tested this position on many different workers and environments and results were consistently better in this position regardless of job, person size or work environment.

Who sees the data generated by the wearable?

The only people who have access to the data are those your company has authorized to view worker’s information.

How many people from my company can have access to the MākuSmart Dashboard?

The number of people at your company that have access to your dashboard is determined by the primary contact overseeing the contract with MākuSafe.  MākuSafe does not put a limit on the number of dashboard users. 

Is the MākuSafe workforce wearable safe to use in a wet environment or in hot, dry environments?

Yes, the MākuSafe workforce wearable core device has been designed and tested in wet conditions; although, it will not function properly if fully submerged in liquids or sprayed with a high-pressure sprayer. It is also rugged enough for hot, dry environments.
