With this latest investment, Dräger extends its expertise in the area of digital worksites. Focus FS has developed a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform which digitizes critical operations data for people and assets. It offers different modules such as HSE (Health, Safety & Environment), E-Mustering, Incident Management and Asset Tracking. The customer can choose from a range of modules and create a solution that best fits their company needs. There are three main use cases that can be addressed by the solution: worker safety, plant and asset safety, and incident safety.
This digital technology minimizes risk and delivery performance insights to create safer and smarter workplaces. Through optimized workflow traffic and facility activities, real-time analytics, and dynamic HSE processes worker safety accelerates from simple compliance to safety culture dominance. Plant and asset safety enables efficient worksites with real-time inventory visibility and tracking, preventative maintenance planning, and smart rescue planning operations. Systematic management and corrective action, along with real-time communication and accountability, enhance and improve incident safety protocols.
“Behaviour-based safety, situational awareness, and increased operational productivity are challenges our customers worldwide face on a daily basis. With this partnership, we have the ability to offer effective solutions today,” says AnnMarie Edgerton, Vice President of Segment and Product Marketing Emergency & Rescue Services at Dräger. “Our vision for tomorrow is also clear. We will ensure that not only do we offer technology for life to our customers — we will have an integrated offering that supports their ambitions of building safe and efficient worksites.”
