Fatigue and stress are responsible for most human errors. Even with proper training, high fatigue and stress lead to poor judgement, risky behaviors and decreased alertness and concentration. The challenge is finding an effective and affordable way of detecting them on time, as many workers may not even be aware of them.
Paired with a proprietary earpiece sensor developed in Germany, LONE WORKER SITE works as an app installed on any smartphone. Our advanced algorithm will constantly monitor your worker’s heart rate, temperature and head position, while providing academic-reviewed index scores for fatigue, stress, and other key indicators that could help detect and avoid risks. An abstract of this information will be displayed on the user’s app, but a complete set of information will be available on the administrator’s dashboard for real-time monitoring.
