Join us for a lively roundtable discussion with Intel, Arrow Electronics, MobileTrack, and Rice Electronics. They will be highlighting the results from an extensive study and describe several use cases in which the Rice Electronics Connected Worker Solution* can help increase worker safety and productivity.
Real-Time Insights Improve Workforce Safety and Productivity
How can industrial companies increase worker safety and productivity?
To gain a better understanding, Intel conducted an extensive study of industrial workers in manufacturing, energy, public safety, warehouse, field service, and construction sectors.
Significant improvements can be made by:
- Making workers aware of imminent threats (e.g., toxins, weather risks, ambient conditions)
- Increasing worker awareness of man-down situations
- Ensuring organizations know where workers are at all times
- Giving workers access to near real-time information
Solution: Connected Worker
What’s needed is a robust communication link between workers and remote operation centers to share vital sensor data about the work environment. This is possible with the Rice Electronics Connected Worker Solution*, which employs Intel Internet of Things (IoT) technology. The solution brings near real-time insight to workers on the job.
