People who perform work in the field away from a central plant or facility are known as mobile workers. Almost every industry deploys mobile workers including oil and gas, utilities, water treatment, and chemical manufacturing.
Mobile workers may be hundreds of miles from other people or in an isolated part of plant like a blast furnace in a steel mill. Some mobile workers are active outside normal business hours, for example, utility workers investigating a complaint at 3:00am.
If a mobile worker is exposed to dangerous weather, hazardous gas, or has a medical emergency who will know where the worker is located and what caused the emergency?
One way to improve mobile worker safety is to connect workers to live monitoring software. Typically, a smart phone is paired with a gas detector via Bluetooth to send safety data to the cloud and into the hands of a supervisor or safety manager.
