Unauthorized workers at restricted areas can pose a significant safety risk. These workers may not have the right safety training, certifications or credentials required to enter an area where a high-risk job is being conducted.
With RTLS, geo-fences can be set up to create restricted zones or virtual fences within a worksite. If a worker without proper authorization tries to enter this restricted zone, it is immediately flagged as a breach to the personnel monitoring the workers. The unauthorized worker also gets an alert to notify him that he is not allowed to enter the zone preventing a potential incident from occurring.
Where can it be used?
Geo-fencing is ideal for oil and gas, industrial, logistics, manufacturing, mining, construction and any environment that has areas with restricted access.
