New safety device for construction
By Andy Brown01 September 2022
Tenty, a new construction technology company, has launched a patent-pending telematics safety system for the construction industry in the US.
The company says that it will reduce worker incidents and help construction companies and business consulting firms manage jobsites more efficiently.
The Tenty Rover, connects workers and equipment to ensure safe working conditions and increase productivity by using inch-level positioning GPS-based technology. By relying on a highly accurate worker position and a multitude of physical and environmental sensors, it can warn workers of potential dangers, such as incoming mobile equipment, overhead loads, environmental conditions, and more.
“Tenty is an easy to install system that enhances worker safety and warns workers of potential dangers throughout the jobsite,” said Gustavo A. Anzola, Tenty’s Co-Founder.
“Tenty also increases jobsite productivity with unique tools to communicate with workers, having insight to site performance and ensuring regulation compliance. Lastly, we will improve site response to emergencies by giving workers the ability to send a distress signal to nearby personnel and by providing real-time management of muster points and evacuation procedures,”
The Tenty Rover is a light-weight wearable device equipped with two buttons: a Confirmation button and a SOS button. The Confirmation button allows workers to automatically acknowledge and log when safety briefings are heard and understood, eliminating the time-consuming process of organizing as a group and passing signature sheets.
The SOS button will help workers call out for help during an emergency or incident, and allow managers to locate and assist the workers involved in an emergency much faster.
The Tenty Rover is expected to market by the first quarter of 2023.
