When Does Tracking Workers Make Sense?
The right system can provide safety, privacy and security, and serve the interests of both a company and its employees.
What about the cost of such a solution?
Other benefits of a worker-location system include lower insurance premiums, auditable compliance, and the simple confidence and peace of mind that comes from knowing there is an effective system in place to safeguard employees. This is attractive for existing staff members, as well as for the recruitment of new personnel.
Finally, for senior management, a company's reputation is often at stake, and their commitment to worker safety using active RFID should clearly be more than a simple written statement, policy or poster. What's more, the increased visibility provided by the technology might result in saving a worker from being injured or killed onsite. How much is it that worth?
