This unique collaboration leverages satellite communication technology and advanced monitoring solutions to ensure comprehensive safety for workers beyond cellular coverage.
Fort Lauderdale, FL on June 13, 2023 – ACR Electronics, a leading provider of satellite communication devices, and Becklar Workforce Safety, a top-tier provider of comprehensive workforce safety solutions, are proud to unveil a partnership aimed at maximizing safety for workers operating in remote locations.
This strategic collaboration harnesses the capabilities of the Bivy Stick, which utilizes the global Iridium satellite network, along with Becklar’s comprehensive worker safety solution. By integrating the power of an Iridium-enabled global satellite communicator with Becklar’s WorkerSafety Pro app, Safety Dashboard, and Monitoring center, the partnership ensures uninterrupted check-ins and access to safety services for remote workers, regardless of cellular coverage.
“Our mission has always been to ensure that our users, no matter how isolated their work environment, have access to the dependable safety and communication tools they need,” stated John T. Nguyen, President at ACR Electronics. “Now, in partnership with Becklar Workforce Safety, we’re taking this pledge even further, integrating our cutting-edge satellite technology with Becklar’s robust safety solutions.”
The state-of-the-art Becklar Workforce Safety system is specifically designed to protect individuals working alone, at height, or in adverse environments. By combining a satellite-enabled device with innovative monitoring apps, immediate assistance can be provided in the event of a fall, detection of abnormal environmental factors, or an SOS signal triggered by the worker.
This integration ensures that:
- All incidents are recorded to the centralized safety portal.
- Incidents trigger notifications to contacts in the Workforce Safety system.
- Action plans are followed according to company guidelines consistent with other devices.
“At Becklar Workforce Safety, we are passionate about protecting people with the most comprehensive, easy-to-use solutions in the market,” said Brock Winzeler, President at Becklar Workforce Safety. “Our alliance with ACR Bivy Stick expands our ability to deliver peace of mind to remote teams, contributing to cost savings and most importantly, protecting lives.”
