Automated PPE warnings keep workers & employers safe

The primary purpose of PPE is to protect employees from potential hazards and reduce the risk of injuries or illnesses.

If an employee suffers an injury or illness due to not wearing the required PPE, employers may be held liable for negligence. This can result in workers' compensation claims, lawsuits, and increased insurance premiums.

Adequate use of PPE is not only crucial for employee safety but also for protecting the financial well-being of the employer.

PRODUCT BENEFITS

Safety signs are easy to ignore, spacebands are not

Workers will be alerted when they enter an area that requires them to use item(s) of personal protective equipment (PPE) through a wearable wristband.

When a device triggers it will alert the wearer by beeping, flashing and vibrating. Customisable error messages can be displayed such as ‘This area requires a hard hat’ or ‘Hazardous area, protective headphones are mandatory’.

Reminders for multiple PPE alerts can be set on the spacebands’ dashboard.

STATISTICS

40% of workers experience a workplace injury that could have been prevented by wearing PPE

In a study conducted by OSHA, it was found that the most frequently cited standard in 2021 was the "Eye and Face Protection" standard, with 1,231 violations reported.

A study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene found that workers who were reminded to wear PPE by supervisors were twice as likely to wear it consistently compared to those who were not reminded.

spacebands' will automatically remind users to wear PPE, and record when a user mutes the device, moving liability away from companies and helping to minimise accidents in the workplace.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

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

What does PPE mean?

PPE stands for Personal Protective Equipment. It refers to any equipment or clothing worn by individuals to protect themselves from potential hazards in their workplace or during other activities. Examples of PPE include safety helmets, gloves, eye protection, respirators, high-visibility clothing, safety footwear, and earplugs.

Can a spacebands device be customised for my workplace?

spacebands devices are completely customisable. You can decide if wearables will alert with an icon for a variety of PPE. We can remind your staff members to wear hardhats, capped boots, hi-vis, safety glasses, etc.

Will a spacebands PPE reminder device improve compliance with safety regulations?

A PPE reminder device can be an effective tool for improving compliance with safety regulations related to the use of PPE. By providing consistent reminders, increasing awareness, promoting accountability, and improving the overall safety culture, these devices can help reduce the risk of workplace injuries and illnesses.

What benefit does having PPE prompts in the workplace have?

Having PPE prompts in the workplace can have several benefits, including:

Increased awareness: Prompts serve as a visual reminder to employees of the importance of wearing PPE. This can increase awareness of the potential hazards in the workplace and the measures needed to protect against them.

Consistent use of PPE:Consistent use of PPE is critical to maintaining a safe work environment. Prompts can help ensure that employees consistently wear the appropriate PPE when needed, reducing the risk of workplace injuries and illnesses.

Reduced liability: Employers have a legal responsibility to provide their employees with appropriate PPE and ensure that it is used correctly. Prompts can help employers demonstrate that they have taken reasonable steps to meet their legal obligations and reduce their liability in the event of a workplace accident.

Improved safety culture: Regular use of PPE prompts can help promote a culture of safety in the workplace. When employees see that their employer is committed to providing a safe work environment and takes safety seriously, they are more likely to prioritise safety themselves.

What types of businesses or industries benefit from PPE prompt devices?

Any industry where workers are required to wear PPE to protect against potential hazards can benefit from PPE prompt devices. These devices can help ensure that employees consistently wear the appropriate PPE when needed, reducing the risk of workplace injuries and illnesses.
