With the Utah Safety Council Convention coming up, we wanted to take a minute to feature one of our up and coming products. Hazardous Area (HA) allows you to monitor employee safety in areas that have been determined to be more “risky.” Such areas include: compactors, balers, presses and crushers.
The program functions through a series of electronic tags, carried by all operators within the vicinity of the potentially dangerous areas. In addition to fitting people with the sensors, all machines and conveyors are also tagged with detector antennas to effectively detect people carrying tags in hazardous situations. If someone were to, for example, fall on a belt, the machine would automatically turn itself off, preventing a potentially fatal accident.
Key features of HA include:
For optimal functionality, all operators, machines and their respective conveyors, must be fitted with, or must be carrying, a detectable tag or device. HA has done wonders in some of the more treacherous working environments, and it’s just one of several Claitec products that has been engineered specifically for safety in the workplace.
