Wearable Safety Tech For LMC Workers Compensation Policyholders
MākuSafe is proud to partner with LMC Insurance & Risk Management to offer their workers compensation policyholders the opportunity to use workforce wearables to improve worker safety and reduce claims.
What is MākuSafe?
MākuSafe® is an award-winning wearable safety, data & analytics solution aimed at improving worker health, safety, and productivity while reducing incidents and mitigating workplace hazards and risk exposures.
The MākuSafe wearable’s connected sensors capture motion and environmental data in real-time and improve communication from the front lines. Safety & risk intelligence is sent to a web-based platform which gives company safety leaders new insights and helps them prioritize their workplace safety and risk control efforts.
For industrial clients with LMC worker compensation polices, there are many benefits beyond improved workplace safety:
- Loss avoidance based on safety data
- Aid to safety management system efficiency
- Enhanced loss control effectiveness
- Pandemic mitigation/ contact tracing
- Positive impact on safety culture and mindfulness

Want to learn more before making a decision? The MākuSafe Team can easily provide a quick general overview of the technology and software platform so you’ll understand how it works. We’d love to walk you through what we do, and learn about your operation, and discuss how we can provide a safety difference for you and your team!
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.
Can the MakuSafe Workforce Wearables be used as a “man down/life-saving” device?
No, MakuSafe is NOT designed to be used as a “man down/life-saving” device. Instead, the core device collects data that equips safety managers with the information they need to prevent an injury before it happens.
How long will set up and installation take?
Depending on your facility or work area size and the amount of equipment being installed, setup and installation should take only a few hours.
If you require multiple Base Stations, and an above average amount of equipment, the installation time will vary.
How much space will the MakuSafe equipment take up in my facility or work area?
The MakuSafe Base Station is normally mounted near an entrance that employees use to enter and leave the work area, often times near a time clock.
Each Base Station requires an open space at least 2 feet by 3 feet on a wall and should be within 6’ of a power outlet mounted 4’ on center from the floor.
What kind of data is my wearable gathering?
The sensors within the MakuSafe core device focuses on four types of data:
- Environmental conditions around the worker.
- Any hazardous motion experienced by or performed by the worker.
- The location of the worker at the time a sensor threshold is met.
- Voice memos from the worker about conditions they are experiencing.
Will the device buzz or alert in some way if it believes the worker is doing something wrong?
No. MakuSafe 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 an hazard or have a meaningful conversation with workers.
Does the MakuSafe workforce wearable detect noxious gases?
At this time the MakuSafe core device does not detect noxious or explosive gases specifically but will detect unusual amounts of Total Volatile Organic Compounds ( TVOCs).
Is the MakuSafe workforce wearable safe to use in a wet environment?
Yes, the MakuSafe 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.
Can I use the MakuSafe workforce wearable outside of my work area?
Yes, but the core device will only report an indicator within range of your WiFi network or when you return to that WiFi network.
