Leica Geosystems launches safety awareness solution
By Catrin Jones24 August 2022
Leica Geosystems has announced the launch of the new safety awareness module in the cloud-based collaboration platform Leica ConX.
The integration of Leica Geosystems’ safety awareness solutions with ConX is said to increase safety on construction sites by collecting and visualising data that enhances awareness, speeds up hazard response and provides better insights.
The company says that the system integrates the field-generated safety data into the cloud-based collaboration platform Leica ConX, therefore allowing decision makers to review incidents and assess the entire operation over time.
These insights are said to support important safety initiatives by providing users visualisation, analysis, monitoring, reporting as well as data management functions. Additionally, Leica Geosystems says that the new safety awareness module can allow site managers to send real-time alerts to specific machine operators in case of potential incidents, such as blasting, demolitions or storms.
The inclusion of an application programming interface (API) means that ConX can be used in safety systems by other providers.
Kris Maas, director of product management at Leica Geosystems, said, “For a comprehensive approach to operations, it is essential to include people and safety functions. With the new safety awareness module in ConX, contractors can improve communication, interaction and safety for all workers operating with and around equipment on a job site.”
