Fatigue can increase the number of errors and accidents in the workplace. It affects the ability to focus, stay alert and maintain a high standard and consistent level of output. A wide range of sectors can benefit from the Bodytrak fatigue management solution to improve safety and promote overall well-being, while optimising performance. This can be particularly effective for those who have long and physically demanding workdays or those who perform monotonous, repetitive tasks.
Sectors that can benefit greatly from incorporating a fatigue monitoring system like Bodytrak include (but are not limited to):
- Manufacturing and Heavy Industry
- Utilities and Energy
- Mining and Agriculture
- Warehousing and Logistics
- Oil & Gas
- Lone Workers
- Emergency Services
- Military and Defence
Integration with the Bodytrak system
With the cost of living increasing, people are working more and longer hours. As a result, the likelihood of fatigue-induced incidents also increases putting many employees at risk. Integrating Bodytrak into existing safety protocols will proactively and unobtrusively prevent incidents, injury and illness; however, the solution extends beyond mitigating risks related to fatigue.
Bodytrak captures real-time physiological data to also prevent incidents associated with heat-stress and noise exposure, safeguarding high-risk workers who face some of the most challenging and hazardous conditions.
Alongside real-time monitoring, geolocation, geofencing and SOS alerts are features that add another level of safety. Whenever an alert is generated, Bodytrak can instantly identify where the user is located whether they are indoors or outdoors, allowing rapid assistance to be deployed. Similarly, the SOS alert is a simple user-activated alarm that is triggered on the dashboard and via SMS and email when urgent support is required.
The Bodytrak solution can also provide hearing protection when required (via Hear:safe™ earbuds) as well as measuring noise exposure and dosage. Noise dosimetry is used to prevent noise-induced hearing loss by measuring accumulating noise exposure at the ear to alert for excessive noise.
Seamless data integration
REST-APIs are available to seamlessly integrate the data from the Bodytrak Platform into an organisation’s existing platform for a unified interface. These added features of protection ensure organisations have a cost-effective safety solution that covers a number of workplace risk factors in one convenient, intuitive overall solution, rather than disparate systems, thereby reducing downtime and increasing productivity.
What is a fatigue monitoring system?
A solution designed to assess, track, and manage the fatigue levels of employees in various industries. It aims to ensure the well-being and safety of workers while optimising productivity. These systems typically employ a combination of wearable technology and data analysis to achieve these goals.
Fatigue monitoring systems are particularly valuable in industries where long working hours, irregular shifts, and physically or mentally demanding tasks can increase the risk of accidents and reduce employee well-being. By proactively managing fatigue, these systems contribute to a safer and more productive workforce.
Which sensors measure fatigue?
To monitor fatigue, the Bodytrak Earpiece contains a sensor that measures heart rate and heart rate variability (HRV). HRV is the variance of time between consecutive heart beats, which indicates the status of the autonomic nervous system that controls our involuntary physiological responses. When the variability is high the body can dynamically adapt to the environment and conditions, indicating less fatigue. A lower variability indicates the body’s inability to process any sudden changes as efficiently; this indicates the body is fatigued or under stress.
How do you monitor drivers for fatigue?
When a driver wears the Bodytrak device it works in the background unobtrusively to capture their physiological responses and continuously determine their level of fatigue. Whilst eye blinking detection cameras are used in lorry cabs to indicate fatigue, by the time fatigue is detected it can be too late to prevent an incident. The Bodytrak solution processes HRV in real-time and generates alerts to the onset of fatigue well in advance of the driver experiencing any major effects of fatigue, ensuring necessary action can be taken by the driver or their supervisor. While each user may have a different response to workplace stressors, Bodytrak takes this into account by providing individualised monitoring. Following 20 hours of data collection, a baseline profile is generated for each user so that the fatigue reporting is more accurate and individualised for each worker.
