The MākuSafe® Model: Leveraging Predictive Information and Just-In-Time Solutions to Keep Workers Safe  

Workplace wearables can go beyond biometrics and fitness, tracking useable data that’s relevant to employee safety and focuses on the environment around an employee, not the employee themselves. This data includes things such as environmental conditions and slips, trips and falls, providing a more complete picture of workplace risk. With this data, manufacturers and industrial organizations can better understand trends and create efficiencies and insurance carriers can target, select and price risk more specifically for policyholders and accelerate time to value on policies.

Technology at Work: Wearables in Workers Compensation

Is wearable technology a game changer for workers compensation?

“As wearable technology advances, the interviewed stakeholders agree that wearables are well positioned to become an integral part of the future workplace and the workers compensation system. Notably, with more widespread use, wearables could provide data and information that could lead to safer workplaces and may help reduce recovery times, facilitate return-to-work, and reduce the overall costs of workers compensation claims. As one stakeholder noted, “By preventing injuries, everybody wins: the employee, employer, agent, and the insurance company.”

4 Ways Wearable Safety Tech is Transforming Industrial Automation

From our perspective, automation efforts frequently stall because they fail to interact with a plant’s most important asset – its people. Connected workers are a massive opportunity to increase the breadth of intelligent sensors throughout a manufacturing facility. Using only a small device worn in an armband, an entire workforce can automatically and continuously capture environmental, motion, observations from the front line, and location/proximity data.
