Taking Care of the Welfare of Workers Wearing PPE
In industrial and military settings, individuals wearing the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) are prone to suffer from physical injuries related to heat stress. Due to the high pressure that is associated with working in the extreme environments, workers easily become disoriented and unaware that they are actually suffering from pain and injuries that are work-related.
Using the PPE monitoring equipment, supervisors in these work areas can detect psychological changes in their workers and step in to help before the situations become worse. The wearable products ensure that the workers’ welfare is taken care of. The products can monitor their heart rate, temperature, breathing, and posture.
