Kenzen

The Kenzen heat monitoring system is for use by industrial companies, such as construction firms, mining operations, agricultural, utilities, and oil and gas worksites. It is a SaaS system that includes a wearable device worn by workers that alerts both the worker and their supervisor when the worker's core body temperature is too high and he/she is in danger of heat illness or injury, including death. Real-time alerts allow for immediate intervention to keep workers safe and help the company proactively manage its risk and productivity. Data also informs Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) leaders' decisions to enhance heat safety across the company.

The Kenzen wearable sensor monitors multiple individual physiological and environmental metrics, including heart rate, sweat rate, exertion levels, and microclimate. It also stores an individual worker's heat susceptibility and hydration needs based on the factors that affect a person's tolerance to heat, which include gender, age, health conditions, prescriptions taken, and more. Together, this data allows for accurate prediction of heat stress for workers and the prevention of heat-related injuries and fatalities.

The Kenzen system monitors core body temperature, the greatest predictor of heat stress and illness, and alerts workers via smart phone notifications and supervisors via web dashboards when a worker should take a break to avoid heat-related injuries. The system makes recommendations on how to treat heated workers and a second alert indicates when the worker's temperature has returned to a safe level to return to work.

Tens of thousands of data points collected per worker per day help companies manage heat risk by location and job role, and adapt worksites to improve safety while maximizing productivity. Modifications may include changes to work-rest schedules, hydration and shade stations, air-conditioned rest areas, and ice-bath locations. The data can also inform decisions about appropriate use of equipment and clothing to reduce heat injuries.

The three views of data were designed by Kenzen to protect workers' private health information.

The Kenzen system is currently being used throughout the world to keep people safe on the job.
