Silverwater, Australia, May 16, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- DBI-SALA, the world’s leading manufacturer solely dedicated to the fall protection market, introduces the new i-Safe™ Intelligent Safety System. A revolutionary, first of its kind safety system, i-Safe™ delivers real-time solutions for inspection, inventory control and information management. i-Safe™ combines Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)-equipped fall protection equipment with web-based information management to maximise the effectiveness and minimise the total cost of safety programs.
Effective immediately, all DBI-SALA fall protection harnesses will become i-Safe™ enabled and i-Safe™ will be standard on most DBI-SALA equipment by the end of 2007. Additionally, a retrofit kit will be available to incorporate i-Safe™ technology on existing equipment, regardless of brand. i-Safe™ allows companies to track equipment assigned by worker or location, download or view equipment user instruction manuals, inspection criteria and safety regulations quickly and effortlessly.
“i-Safe™ significantly simplifies the administration of safety programs said Ian Heslop, Sales Director for Capital Safety in Australia and New Zealand. “i-Safe™ allows you to easily record and access information on inspections, inventory and related safety and equipment information; it was specifically developed to help manage the intricate safety challenges faced by safety managers on a daily basis.”
The system provides streamlined access to a variety of information that companies need for management of their safety programs. This creates a safer and more productive work environment with fewer delays because of missing, out-of-date, or improperly inspected equipment.
The i-Safe™ RFID tags are read by portable electronic readers that scan and account for the equipment through unique serial numbers. Each tag’s unique ID registers the product’s model type and history. The tags have no battery to limit their life and are resistant to grease, dust and salt water to ensure efficient functionality.
The recorded data is instantly available through a customised i-Safe™ web portal, which is set up and hosted by DBI-SALA professional safety and information management consultants. The website also provides access to related safety and equipment information, training records and product advisories.
