‘Hazard Footprints’ is a conceptual safety monitoring utility which uses indoor positioning technology and GPS to allow employees to deal with safety incidents within an industrial environment. This is to enrich the interaction between employee and often complex safety systems. ‘Hazard Footprints’ hints at a possible future application for ubiquitous indoor positioning technology.
When the employee encounters a potentially dangerous situation in their workplace, they can record the incident using the “Locsafe” recording tool. Through active analysis and visualisation of incident uploads, safety experts can deal with safety issues more efficiently.
