With our worker proximity monitoring feature, SmartConnect has answered the call for better clarity as America’s industrial sites continue to need maintenance and construction during demands for social distancing.
SmartConnect’s wearable technology helps keep employees safe by enforcing social distancing guidelines via alerts. When used with SmartConnect gateways, configurable contact tracing reports help quickly identify degrees of exposure.
Supporting COVID-19 Guidance
Helping the Oil and Gas industry adapt in challenging circumstances – The SmartConnect Connected Worker Solution works overtime to protect and mentor an effective workforce. Wearing the Smart Badge, each worker has a configurable safety zone monitor, notifying the wearer when others get too close. At the same time, The SmartConnect application creates a detailed history of proximity events and interactions to aid contact tracing.

Mentoring While Monitoring
The contact monitoring feature has two modes, first gently reminding workers to maintain a safe distance, second creating alerts for extended contact events.
Proximity Warning and Alerts
The Smart Badge signals each worker inside a 6’ proximity with sound, light, and vibration alert. Alerts automatically stop when workers separate. Persistent close contact (>25 seconds – configurable) generates an alert on the ePaper display that is cleared by button push. With contact tracing functionality enabled, events are logged for reporting and administration.
A detailed workforce contact report lists the Smart Badge ID, date, and duration of minimum proximity interactions between workers within a selected time frame. Tracing information is made available in real time via SmartConnect’s local network, removing the need to sync or upload data from individual Smart Badges.
