Global fertilizer company Nutrien has deployed a wireless safety solution that includes a wearable sensor that operates on a proprietary 900 MHz RF badge worn by all workers. The firm employees contract workers during periodic scheduled breaks in production for maintenance services known as turnarounds. All of the contractors are there only for a short time, yet they face the same health challenges as other workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn how Nutrien is successfully managing turnarounds at nitrogen and potash sites via the active RF solution that monitors social distancing and provides contact tracing for 1,500 or more contract workers temporarily onsite.
