Heavy equipment like forklifts and machinery are responsible for over 20% of all accidents causing injury in the manufacturing sector. Often, workers are injured and are unable to communicate to get help. This is where OnGuard can make the difference.
With a robust set of features designed to protect workers in the manufacturing sector, the OnGuard Lone Worker system can really save lives. From Fall Detection, Mobile Hazard Alerting, Panic Button and Man Idle Detection, OnGuard can do it all. OnGuard’s Hazardous Location Mode, prompts the worker to check-in on a timed interval, creating a “Proof of Life” check-in that defines that the worker is OK and continuing to work. This feature can significantly improve overall safety and awareness.
Integrated Push to Talk communication, provides the worker further protection by having an instant link that turns the cellular device into a high-performance walkie talkie. When a panic or fall has been detected, a PTT emergency channel is automatically opened, and communication can be initiated to determine the condition of the worker.
