The recently launched, fully connected portable gas detector, ConneXt Lone Worker, co-developed by Trakopolis and Honeywell was featured in an article on EHSToday.com titled, “No Worker Left Behind: Protecting Lone Workers in the Oil and Gas Industry“.
In early May the two companies announced their first deal valued at $4.8 million (USD) for 1,500 Units that pairs TRAK’s software technology with Honeywell’s wearable gas detector.
In the piece, the co-authors Ken Schmidt, VP/General Manager of Honeywell Industrial Safety, and Brent Moore, CEO of Trakopolis, describe the key value added features that the ConneXt Lone Worker product provides compared to legacy, unconnected portable gas detector products.
Some of those features include:
- Managers can “click” into the status of a remote worker to review gas readings, emergency safety alerts and more.
- Alarm notifications are automatically sent to managers and necessary safety personnel.
- Man-down alerts warn managers when a remote worker stops moving. A manual panic button is available to the worker to signal personal emergencies.
- Managers can send and receive text messages with workers.
- Check-in and check-out status and shift messages are automatic.
- GPS tracking enables managers to pinpoint both worker and vehicle locations.
