Henriott Group & MākuSafe Partner For Safer Workers in Indiana
June 29, 2021
West Des Moines, IA – June 29, 2021 – MākuSafe and Henriott Group Insurance announced a progressive partnership which will impact the safety of Indiana’s industrial workers. Henriott’s workers compensation policyholders can now begin using MākuSafe technology to reduce claims, mitigate workplace hazards, and keep workers safe. This is the first relationship of its kind in Indiana for MākuSafe, as the company seeks to align with workers comp insurers in the US and abroad to send more workers home safely each day.
Gabriel Glynn, CEO and Co-Founder of MākuSafe said, “We are proud to partner with insurers like Henriott Group, who are leveraging innovative technologies to help their policyholders differentiate, reduce risk and engage their workers while keeping them safe. Collaborating with Henriott Group also allows us to reach those organizations who are looking for Industry 4.0 connected worker productivity solutions that prioritize safety.”
The small MākuSafe wearable device is worn on the arm of a worker and monitors changing environmental conditions such as noise levels, heat exposure, and air quality. It also detects potentially hazardous human motion like slips & trips, repetitive movements, and strain and exertion concerns. These data indicators are then sent in real-time to a robust cloud analytics platform, called MākuSmart. It is there that artificial intelligence and machine learning are being used to uncover patterns and trends, and deliver notifications to safety leadership helping them understand, assess, and prioritize risks in their facilities. Proactive organizations using these evidence-based leading indicators of risk, and voice reported near-misses and good catch observations from workforce wearables on the front lines, have an advantage in remediating hazards preventatively before incidents occur.
“Henriott Group’s mission is to provide customized, innovative, cost-effective solutions to manage risk. Our clients operate sophisticated businesses, and they demand sophisticated, cutting-edge solutions to ensure that they stay ahead of their competition, all while offering a progressive, safe environment for their team members. Our strategic partnership with MākuSafe is another example of our transformative rather than transactional approach to manage our client’s total cost of risk.” said Kelley Henriott & Andrew Ball, Co-CEO’s of Henriott Group, Inc.
