Safety management unwired
Capital Safety’s i-Safe Intelligent Safety System is a radio frequency identification (RFID)-based system dedicated to fall protection equipment tracking. The latest upgrade to the system called, i-Safe 2.0, makes managing a safety program even easier and more cost effective, the company says. The i-Safe system’s wireless data collection process consists of a web portal for information management and a mobile device for on-site inspections. The system allows users to easily record and access information on inspections, inventory and use information, track equipment assignments by worker or location, view or download safety and equipment instructions, and access links to safety standards. The information is stored and updated through a web-based database for easy access anytime. The i-Safe system also provides real-time date for report accuracy, Capital Safety says. The i-Safe mobile device enables field inspection and information management on the job site. Almost all DBI-SALA fall protection products are RFID-enabled and ready to be added to an i-Safe database. Retrofit tags are also available to outfit existing inventory from any manufacturer, as well as other equipment, such as ladders, fire extinguishers, power tools and more. The mobile reader scans the tags to record inspections, make job assignments or manage inventory in the field. Data is then uploaded to the interactive web portal.
