Is your workforce connected?
Your jobsite generates a ton of data from your equipment, but you can’t understand bottlenecks and how to maximize productivity without a clear picture of the humans who work on the site.
That data is crucial to making jobsites safe and efficient. So how do you get it?
Getting human data via smart devices
Smart wearable devices can connect employees to an organization’s digital worksite map. These let you see where your employees are located, and monitor their equipment usage. Such analytics let you optimize your workspace in several ways:
- Starting at the front door: With Triax’s access partners MAC, you can implement automated turnstiles at the worksites entry point to control who can enter and when. These can even be implemented in specific locations within the site to regulate access for potentially hazardous areas. Worker profiles allow each person to have credentials assigned to them based on what certifications and clearances they have, determining where they can and can’t go, minimizing exposure and ensuring your team is safe.
- Time and attendance: Another added value is automated time tracking. By regulating access to the property, it can be seen when workers enter and exit the site. This gives the information needed to manage labor hours efficiently and determine who was on site, where on site they were, and for how long.
- Maximize workfront exposure: Understanding how workers are spending their time leads to making productivity far more efficient. Besides access, Spot-r can zone out the worksite and determine which areas are productive vs. nonproductive. This can help reduce bottlenecks to maximize time spent throughout the facility or plant. If an employee is not able to complete their task, a clear picture can be seen of their workflow and any issues that halt their productivity can be addressed.
- Efficient evacuation plans: Triax goes the next step and creates action plans. With two-way communication, managers and workers can inform the other of emergencies as soon as they develop with alters. Covid outbreaks, dangerous machinery malfunctions, gas or chemical leaks can pop up, and our tools allow that information to be conveyed quickly to expedite action.
Having data on your hardware AND workforce enables you to increase operational efficiencies and jobsite safety.
The bridge between human and machine data
Industrial machines produce hundreds of data points every second. Many equipment pieces come pre-installed with data-collection abilities, including; statuses, modes, alarms, overrides, loads, speeds and feeds – even sensors measuring temperature, vibration or power draw. So we’ll check off that box.
However, there’s a lot more to the puzzle that is needed to complete the picture.
Companies tend to use these insights to make informed guesses about worker productivity. Equipment data can show if a machine is active, but has no way to tell who the operator is or if they’re even trained to use it.
So how can organizations collect data on how their workers interact with the jobsite and receive real time location data on both workers and hazards? Combining hardware data with human data answers this question by creating a clear picture of what is going on in the jobsite.
By connecting the gap commonly experienced between the two, Triax helps organizations spend less time scrambling to find data, and more time making better efficient decisions.
Let Triax connect your worksite.
Measuring time spent in productive versus nonproductive zones on a worker level is a big way we can improve productivity. That’s taking human data alone and making it useful by overlaying forward-looking data about where that worker *should* be vs. where he or she is.
