Leading Safety and Productivity in Utilities

Utilities plays a very important role in our lives, from both social and economic perspectives. Any disruptions in service delivery can drive many functions in our society to a grinding halt. Despite the importance of this industry, revenue continues to drop year over year (average of 6.9% drop per year since 2015), which means, employers are facing increasing pressure to do more with less.

Additionally, with the world striving to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emission goals, the need for advanced technology to improve safety and productivity in this industry is critical.

At Aware360, we have the experience and expertise in the utilities industry to help your organization address safety and productivity challenges.

 

Safety Challenges in Utilities

Safety Challenges in Utilities

Between 2003 to 2010, there were over 160 reported deaths due to contact with electric current in the United States. In addition to electrical hazards, employees who are frequently dealing with gas, water, and sewage are also exposed to environmental risks and hazards.

Lone working has also become commonplace for those working in this industry. Many employees regularly travel between, and work in sites alone, empty properties and client homes. Lone working brings with additional risks in addition to other common hazards such as:

  • Working in confined spaces often with electrical equipment
  • Working at heights and the potential of falling from height
  • Working near water
  • Working with hazardous substances

One option we offer to help address the top safety issue of slips, trips and falls is our Belle X wearable as part of our SafetyAware solution. This lightweight device offers check-in, fall detection, and SOS in the event of an emergency.
