FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

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

At what height does the wearable alert the wearer to wear safety gear?

This can be customised in your admin dashboard but the default height at which alerts are sent if 6ft off the ground.

Does the wearable account for getting to the place where workers are working from height?

Yes, the wearable is able to compensate for trips in elevators or escalators to get to the place where a worker is working from height.

What happens if a worker ignores the safety prompt when working from height?

The wearable provides the employee with awareness and the  employer with a paper trail, recording what time the prompt was sent and to which wearable. If you choose to allocate a wearable to a specific individual, then you will be able to tell which individual received which prompt, and at what time.

Can I assign a wearable to individual workers?

Yes, you can assign a wearable to an individual so you know which individual received each prompt and when. Alternatively, if you wanted worker data to remain anonymous, there is no need to assign wearables - just allow workers to use whichever wearable is free.

Can certain workers be made exempt from the working from height warnings?

Yes, you can mute alerts on specific wearables to stop certain job roles from being notified they are working from height.

Does the device send an SOS if a worker suffers a fall while working from height?

Yes, this is a separate spacebands feature known as SOS or person down alert. Using a gyroscope, when it detects a fall, it sends an alert to all nearby wearable devices for assistance.
