Wearable technology, such as wrist monitors and safety vests, can monitor the health of employees and their movements, and their location. Wearables are programmed to alert workers whenever a potential hazard is present.
For example, a wrist monitor could alert someone working outdoors that they are at risk of suffering from a heat stroke. Similarly, a safety vest could reduce the risks of being struck by passing drivers for road construction workers. Also, read about Wearable Biosensors.
