HOW CAN SMART TECHNOLOGY HELP SAVE LIVES AND OVER 1 MILLION LOST WORKING DAYS A YEAR?
Estimates show that manufacturing accounts for around 10% of fatalities in the workforce and nearly 20% of reported non-fatal injuries*. That makes safety a key priority for manufacturers. Investing in smart networks that connect people and machines in real-time helps transform safety across the plant.
In the smart factory, everyone and everything is united, creating an environment where safe production can thrive. Ruggedly built radios with applications like Man Down and production lines with integrated sensors identify problems and trigger alerts. With workers connected across the plant, whatever device they’re using, an immediate response can be put into action, minimising danger.
Listen to our new “BEING SMART IS BEING SAFE” podcast and hear how smart technology is making the factory a safer place to work through:
• More automated production lines with fewer workers handling machinery
• Dedicated radios designed to work in factory environments with built-in safety applications
• WAVE Workgroup Communications for connecting everyone, regardless of device
