Smartbands Usher in a New Era of Operator Safety

The Cat® Smartband gives you insight into how sleep impacts your operations.

 

We wear fitness bands to track our workouts, count our steps and tell us how much we sleep. But in the working world, measuring sleep quantity and quality can be used to save lives. Cat® Connect is giving customers an easy way to capture data that is 93% as accurate as the results of a laboratory sleep study – with no need for wires or a hospital gown.

To complement our suite of safety technologies, we’ve developed a wearable sleep monitor that can predict when the wearer’s fatigue level will become a safety risk. The band utilizes non-invasive actigraphy to measure motion with an internal 3-D accelerometer. Data is downloaded into an analytics program that demonstrates how sleep patterns are impacted by shift schedules, and how sleep debt affects an individual’s effectiveness during work hours.

Visibility into sleep levels not only helps operators cut down on fatigue-related accidents, but it can also indicate deeper health issues like sleep apnea or even increased risk for heart disease. Overall, individuals who get less sleep get sick more often and consequently miss more work, costing their companies exponentially more in health care costs.

The Smartband integrates with the Cat Driver Safety System to provide a holistic solution built to mitigate and manage fatigue risk. With this level of visibility into every single operator on site, our customers ensure they are reducing fatigue-related incidents and improving efficiency across their operations.
