Utility Worker Safety in a Digital Age

Utility companies can secure next-generation technology for a safer workplace.

Monitor location, observe health, identify issues, decrease risk.

Frontline workers across the utility sector have something in common: a unique need for safety protocols. Utility companies often send workers alone to remote areas where they may encounter risks like heights, confined spaces, or electrical hazards. Workers depend on their company to provide appropriate equipment for a safe work environment. All utilities need to ensure safety monitoring and emergency alerts are as precise and far-reaching as possible.


The Challenge

Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for utility workforces present an end-to-end, digital solution providing real-time visibility and actionable insights. Sensors, wearables, and augmented reality devices can come in the form of wristbands, handsets, lanyard attachments, or downloadable apps. Through these IoT solutions utility organizations can monitor worker health, prevent hazardous situations, and respond to emergencies swiftly. However, these innovative safety initiatives can only be realized through a secure, reliable network system built for mission critical services.
