Emerson has announced the launch of Location Awareness, a new offering in its Plantweb™ “digital ecosystem” that aims to advance industrial safety to protect employees at refineries, chemical plants and oil and gas platforms.
The personnel location system offers industrial companies an option to protect workers.
Emerson says that its Location Awareness technology could help reduce more than 70% of common personnel-recordable incidents. Used for safety mustering and man-down events, Location Awareness gives managers a snapshot of employee locations through rechargeable wearable tags. In an emergency, managers can quickly account for employees’ locations in the plant or facility and act to ensure safety.
Location Awareness is the first personnel safety technology powered by the WirelessHART infrastructure, adopted in tens of thousands of plants and facilities worldwide.
