Axcess International has been contracted for a wireless ID system that it says will automate and improve safety on an oil platform in the Far East.
Each worker will wear an RFID-enabled badge, similar in size to traditional ID badges. The only difference being that these wireless badges have embedded transceivers that automatically relay on-the-job status and location.
Using Axcess’ Dot MicroWireless Credential system, the oil platform will have 24/7 monitoring capabilities of its workers.
In the event of a serious injury, commonly called a man-down situation, an alarm is automatically triggered and the given location of the injured worker is provided.
