WorkSpace, a division of IT specialists, Emtec Corporation, has launched the WorkSafe Safe Spacer wearable social distance monitor.
The device helps users maintain a safe social distance in the workplace and alerts wearers when other units come within two metres with light, vibration and sound. FCC, IC and CE RED certified, the device uses cutting edge ultra-wideband radio-frequency technology to achieve precise distancing and is up to ten times more accurate than traditional Bluetooth.
When operated with other protective measures, the Safe Spacer reduces the possibility of person-to-person infection by alerting wearers when other units come within two metres or six feet of them.
With a compact design, the WorkSafe Spacer, can be easily worn on a wristband, belt loop or lanyard and can adapt to any workplace, without compromising existing safety protocols. It is attractive and comfortable to wear and can be used anonymously. There’s a choice of visual, vibration or audio to suit any work environment or individual need, and the device can also log contacts to facilitate fast contract tracing in the event of a reported exposure.
Each unit can be charged individually, or for organisations managing multiple units, the optional S-Charger docking/charging station allows the simultaneous bulk charging of up to 25 Safe Spacers. It is also possible to chain three S-Chargers together, allowing companies to charge up to 75 units at a time. The S-Charger can be connected to a computer to easily configure multiple units and customise alert distances and types.
Ideal for use across the hotel, logistics, medical, manufacturing, food processing and construction industries, the device is also suitable for big corporations with large numbers of staff, who need to maintain distancing while working in a shared office space.
It is waterproof and therefore easy to clean and sanitise and perfect for businesses operating multi-shift facilities or those that are open to the public. The Safe Spacer is suitable for companies of any size, from 10 to 10,000 employees.
