PREVENT ACCIDENTS BEFORE THEY HAPPEN WITH BRIDGECREST MEDICAL’S END-TO-END FATIGUE MANAGEMENT SOLUTION.
HOW OUR FATIGUE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM WORKS
In a large percentage of worksite accidents, fatigue is a major factor. Industry leaders have been working hard to stop this—educating workers, creating new protocols and policies, implementing safety gear like eye trackers and helmet alarms, and more.
But these measures have not been entirely successful. Despite significant investments in new systems, sometimes the data doesn’t reach the company doctor’s desk until after a fatal accident.
What if you could see which employees are at high risk for accidents before they begin their shifts? What if you could make just-in-time decisions to prevent accidents before they happen?
Successful fatigue management requires constant vigilance, especially when things seem routine and predictable. It requires an efficient and effective process. It requires proactive systems that put the right data in the hands of the right person at the right time to make the right decision. To keep your people safe and healthy, and maintain continuous operations.
We at Bridgecrest Medical have designed an end-to-end solution that combines wearable technology and real-time alerts.
With predictive analytics designed to fit your operational context, developed through partnerships with device manufacturers and industry experts, we empower you and your team to make data-driven decisions to prevent problems before they happen.
Here’s how the system works:
- Employees are screened for major risk factors like sleep apnea. The results are automatically synchronized with our secure data analytics platform, where they can be compared with set standards for employees in similar conditions as well as the patient’s historic data.
- The workers wear smartwatches, especially while they are sleeping or resting. These devices measure their biometrics, heart rate, and quality and quantity of sleep.
- The data from the smartwatches automatically feeds into a computer interface. The system categorizes each employee into high, medium and low-risk categories, based on data from top doctors from the world’s leading mining companies.
- In the time between when the employees wake up and when they begin their shifts (often while they are eating in the cafeteria) your company’s doctor or safety manager can review the employees’ risk profiles and make just-in-time management decisions about the people whose metrics show that they are at high risk of causing an accident. This may include sending the employee to the doctor for additional testing or treatment. It may include a different work assignment for the shift (perhaps a maintenance job instead of driving heavy equipment.)
This can fit neatly into operations—without massive investments or workflow disruptions.
When your business depends on 24/7 production, fatigue is a major hazard. Especially when it’s crucial that your people can perform at a high level all day and all night, operating heavy machinery and getting things done.
This system empowers managers to take proactive action against fatigue-related incidents to save lives and ensure smooth operations.
