Worker Safety & Contractor Tracking

Safeguard workers, track contractors, and increase accountability.

Inefficiency and risk often stem from a lack of knowledge. Extronics Advance solutions provide real-time information about the location of workers, as well as data on their wellbeing, to give you the knowledge you need to make the right decisions in a timely manner.

  • optimise your decision-making
  • respond to emergencies more effectively
  • improve safety
  • reduce human error
  • increase accountability and compliance
  • add security

The men and women working in refineries, chemical plants, inland drilling and extraction sites, mines, offshore rigs, and other industrial plants perform in demanding, high-risk environments. Contractors and visitors are often unaware of security procedures or hazards require extra attention.

Knowing who’s on site and where they are is extremely important, but many companies rely on inefficient manual check-in or inaccurate self-scanning procedures. During evacuations, whether real or the mandated drills, muster captains commonly use a clipboard and walkie-talkie to count personnel and work out if everyone has reached a safe zone. This wastes time, and in the chaos of a true emergency could mean tragic consequences.

Extronics Advance offers a comprehensive worker safety solution with several key applications with one common, very important component; real-time visibility. It’s easy to see where workers are now, and where they’ve been over a historical period, enabling you to analyse workflows and discover opportunities to improve productivity. Using an Extronics Advance solution to minimise risk to workers ensures you’re following industry best practices, whilst potentially saving you costs by enhancing efficiency.

In an emergency scenario, personnel are mustered a specific gathering points where the Evacuation Monitoring applications automatically monitors which workers have reached safety as they arrive – and can also detect if a worker should leave the muster point. Quickly identify non-mustered workers and send help directly to their current location to speed up response times as well as reducing the risk to rescue parties. Additionally, the Evacuation Monitoring solution can reduce evacuation drill times by up to  50%, which saves hundreds of man-hours per year in drills.

You can also use a worker location solution to track contractors across your site, giving you added visibility, accountability, and increased security.


 

How Worker Safety solutions work

Each person is assigned an AeroScout active RFID tag. Tags can also be attached to emergency response vehicles and critical safety equipment, such as medical supplies and first aid kits, so they can be easily located when they’re needed. The tags send regular, short bursts over the Wi-Fi network containing location, status, and condition information. Worker safety tags include a call button and a no-motion indicator that can trigger a distress signal. Exciters create choke points around muster points, entrances/exits, stairways, and corridors to detect workers nearby. The MobileView software platform combines this information into an intuitive display that offers the control room real-time, full visibility of the situation both in normal and emergency operations.
