Real Time Location System (RTLS) has been revolutionizing safety for the Oil & Gas industry in recent years. Here are nine ways in which RTLS can positively impact safety in your organization.
Real time tracking, real time benefits
1. Collision Prevention
In 2019, 79 fatalities and 8,140 incidents were caused by forklifts on the work site. RTLS can prevent forklift incidents by alerting forklift drivers and onsite workers when they are too close.
2. Real-time Personnel Tracking
From badge-in to badge-out, workers’ location can be tracked in real time to ensure their safety.
When workers try to enter restricted areas that they don’t have authorization to enter, an alert is raised and corrective action can be taken.
4. Rapid Mustering
In an emergency, all personnel are immediately accounted for and mustering can be carried out effectively.
5. Lone Worker Monitoring
All lone workers can be monitored in real-time for additional safety. In emergency situations, the required help can be provided as required.
6. Pandemic Safety
RTLS can help you ensure that onsite staff maintain 2 feet distance between them by alerting the individuals when the 2-meter distance is breached. RTLS can also provide detailed contact tracing reports to limit the spread of infection onsite.
7. Improved Asset Tracking
RTLS helps to eliminate retrieval time and reduces lost, stolen and misplaced assets.
8. Maintenance Tracking
Reduce downtime and optimize maintenance flow with real-time tracking.
9. Vehicle Tracking
Improve workflow, optimize utilization and routes and reduce fleet operation costs.
