MākuSafe® is an award-winning Connected Worker & Safety Data Analytics solution aimed at improving worker health, safety, and productivity while reducing injuries, workers comp claims, and mitigating risk exposures. Our patented system combines innovative wearable technology with a robust analytics and safety management software platform that provides real-time data with predictive value. This data provides a more complete picture of workplace risk, and includes things such as; Strain and exertion, MSD/ergonomic risk, slips/trips/falls identification. Environmental or industrial hygiene hazards, like heat, sound, air quality, and light. Unequalled in the market is push to talk voice reporting capability which increases communication of good-catches, near-misses, and input/observations from the workers perspective. High degree of concern for worker privacy - no biometrics or PII, and no continual tracking of people. In addition, by elevating the voice of the front lines we create engagement and participation, resulting in stronger cultures and mindset. And intentionally, there is no distracting haptic or other feedback delivered to workers. Contributes to the mission of both Work To Zero and MSD Solutions Lab initiatives. Currently deployed in industrial organizations in more than half of US States, Canada and Mexico, and on 3 continents around the world.
