Technicians often work alone in dangerous environments with limited amounts of light. To assist in their work and to keep them safe, our design team have come up with an ingenious solution; the SmartShoulder - an innovative and wearable tool that increases safety for service engineers working alone and under hazardous conditions.
SmartShoulder is a safety vest with sensors for autonomous lighting – these fitted lights shine upon the technician’s working area to help them do their job. Meanwhile it can also detect if the wearer is in a ‘man-down’ situation - and if so, to make the essential emergency call. Furthermore, this alarm can be actively triggered by the wearer, whenever or wherever he or she feels unsafe.
