Ubiquicom solutions

Safety Locator is Ubiquicom’s suite providing an integrated way to address specific needs related to workplace safety. To obtain a good RoI and minimise the impact on pre-existing processes, Ubiquicom’s solution can be introduced using a gradual approach.

The Safety Locator solution combines the functionalities of tracking, distributed sensing and remote control of devices, having as its final objectives:

 

  • increased safety of personnel engaged in medium or high-risk operations and the consequent reduction of incidents and all the attendant costs of such incidents
  • protection and monitoring of company assets
  • simplification and optimisation of processes that verify compliance with workplace safety regulations
