Minimize risk and stay compliant with safety policies

IBM® IoT Safer Workplace encourages a work environment that helps identify and eliminate hazards in the workplace. This software can help monitor to make sure that employees are using the right safety equipment, harnesses when appropriate and ear protection when in noisy areas. Additionally, by knowing each employee by name and the context of their work, practices and behaviors, you can improve employee-to-employer trust and consideration for safety and increase the likelihood of insurability.

Gather data from wearable wireless devices

This software helps prevent accidents using data gathered in real time from wearable wireless sensors. These sensors can help prevent accidents by monitoring employee fatigue levels and suggesting rest periods. They also send alerts when an employee is in close proximity to moving equipment, alerting the employee and manager using audio and vibration notifications. In addition, IBM IoT Safer Workplace generates heat maps that show busy and high-risk areas so managers can evaluate traffic flows.

Protect workers in extreme conditions

This software helps protect employees working in extreme environments including high heat, toxic gas, open flames and near heavy machinery. Using wearable devices, IBM IoT Safer Workplace helps gather, integrate and analyze employee data with external sources such as the environment and weather to help manage the health, wellness and safety of employees. In the event of an emergency, this software helps expedite an emergency response by notifying a manager or safety officer about the problem.

Benefit from the cognitive capabilities of Watson IoT

IBM IoT Safer Workplace is part of the IBM Watson® IoT platform. Using IBM IoT solutions, you benefit from natural language processing, machine learning, and image and text analytics that enrich IBM IoT Safer Workplace applications, allowing you to manage end-to-end employee safety. This platform offers built-in security and cognitive and industry expertise to understand the unique needs of your organization.
