Safe workplace through innovative distance-warning technology
With SafeZone technology, the distance between individuals is measured with centimeter accuracy. At Oerlikon's locations with the technology installed, employees can choose to either wear the sensor on the wrist or carry it around in a sensor holder. If the predefined minimum distance between 2 sensors, for example 1.5 m, is breached, audio-visual warning signals are activated.
Wearing a SafeZone sensor also enables the precise tracking of contact chains in the event of an infection,
By the end of the year, 8,000 distance-warning devices will be in operation at more than 100 locations in 20 countries in Europe and the USA.
