Forestry organisations in New Zealand have an obligation to keep their workers safe no matter what. With more and more workers, assets and machinery being deployed in forests outside mobile and radio coverage areas, complying with OSH regulations and keeping operating costs down can be a trade-off. In addition to the very important requirement for keeping remote workers safe, forestry organisations often have high value machinery and assets which need to be monitored for their location and for unauthorised usage or theft. The administrative burden of keeping track of company assets in remote locations while also monitoring scheduled worker safety check ins throughout the day can have an enormous impact on organisational efficiency.
Tracertrak’s remote worker safety solutions allow staff to carry a small hand-held device that allows them to check-in as ‘safe’ as necessary and also raise a SOS alert in the event of an emergency. Tracertrak monitors and advises if any ‘safe’ check-ins are missed also alerting you or an external emergency responder if a SOS is triggered. This reduces the need for a staff member to continuously monitor the safety status of workers and eliminates the risk of someone failing to pick up a missed check in or missing a SOS alert.
Tracking the location of remote assets is an activity that can pose a large cost to forestry organisations, especially when operating at multiple sites simultaneously. Tracertrak allows for easy tracking of machinery and other assets in the field while also keeping an eye on your assets while nobody is on site to protect against unauthorised usage and theft.
With Tracertrak monitoring worker safety and keeping your assets on task, you can dramatically increase worker safety while also improving organisational efficiency – no matter where your operations are located.
