SPACEBANDS SOLUTION

Workers don’t always pay attention, but spacebands do

Reducing machinery collisions in the workplace requires a combination of preventive measures and ongoing training for operators.

However, no matter how much signage you put up or how many training courses you provide, there is always an element of human error when it comes to machine to person collisions.

That’s where spacebands come in; your wearables pay attention even when your people are not. Real-time alerts help avoid danger and maintain safety.

PRODUCT BENEFITS

Real time collision warning and data analytics system

spacebands allows employers to create proximity warning zones around machinery in the workplace, whether on fixed machinery or moving vehicles such as fork lift trucks.

Reduce the risk of accidents and injuries in the workplace by detecting a person in a danger zone and nudging them to move to safety.

Near miss collision information is saved to a centralised dashboard to give insight into collision risk areas and employee behaviour, allowing employers to design safer work environments.

spacebands mobile app allows users to control features and read saved information

STATISTICS

Machinery accounts for 7% of all accidents in the workplace

The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) reports that around 4% of all fatal accidents in the European Union are caused by machinery, and that many more workers suffer from non-fatal injuries due to machinery accidents.

A worker died every 101 minutes in 2021 from a work related injury, with transportation incidents the most frequent type of fatal event with 1,982 fatal injuries; an increase of 11.5% from the previous year.

Person to machine collisions can result in serious injuries or fatalities, and it is important for employers to implement appropriate safety measures and use devices that can prevent such accidents from occurring.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

spacebands are helping Health & Safety managers around the world reduce accidents, injuries and legal claims

Can I mute specific wearables so they don’t issue a warning?

Yes you can mute specific wearables so they don’t send an alert. Use cases include if a worker has the required certification or access permissions to be in a certain area then they wouldn’t need to be alerted. You may choose to mute drivers of vehicles such as forklifts, as an example, as they will be in constant proximity to a beacon.

Is it difficult to set the devices up?

spacebands has been designed to be rolled out at enterprise level with ease. Devices can be set-up as soon as you have purchased them, before they have even been delivered. Customising features and settings is easy and can be done through the desktop dashboard or the mobile app. spacebands require an internet connection within proximity to our Charging Station, but otherwise there are no infrastructure requirements whatsoever.

How long is the contract length?

We offer 12, 24 and 36 month contract lengths - with increased discounts the longer the plan length. Each plan gives you full access to the safety and well-being feature range, the analytics dashboard - and unlimited admin users.

Can I control who has access to the dashboard analytics?

Our charging stations can be used worldwide but come with a UK plug. We can provide adapters for your specific country. Our wearable devices must be charged on the charging station, they cannot simply be plugged into a wall socket as we utilise the charging station to share data to our servers.

What is the distancing range of the machine/person collision warning feature?

Machinery/vehicles have a beacon fitted, which will alert employee’s wearing a spacebands wearable device when they come within a set proximity (3m, 4m, 5m, 10m).

What happens if one of the devices malfunctions?

Our returns policy enables hassle free returns of the product with no arguments. If a device is broken, we will replace it and then investigate, not the other way around.
