Digital PPE management

February 2, 2016
Digital PPE management
According to a recent study by 3M, the majority of safety and health professionals still either use pen and paper, word processing or spreadsheets to manually document their safety programs. To help reduce paperwork and time spent on documentation and compliance tasks, 3M has developed Active Safety, a personal protective equipment (PPE) management system. Active Safety uses radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags and cloud-based software that runs on both mobile and desktop devices. To deploy Active Safety, safety professionals add each piece of PPE onto the platform. An RFID tag is attached to each piece, and a user scans that RFID tag with a mobile device to record PPE history, usage and location. The safety professional can also schedule upcoming events, such as worker inspections and fit testing, and can access data from her PPE program on a simple dashboard. It gathers PPE data from across a facility or multiple sites, and can be used with existing PPE. Additional features of Active Safety can include worker-specific PPE record management, inspections and maintenance, PPE audits, inventory management and trackers for employee training, medical evaluations and fit-testing. Active Safety is configurable to fit unique safety program needs.
