RFID ensures worker safety and simplifies tasks
Whether you work at home, in an office or on a construction site, RFID has the potential to save you time and effort by simplifying and rationalising tasks. It is already being used to increase worker safety in dangerous environments such as chemical plants and building sites.
The fences around construction sites can be secured with RFID to prevent theft and ensure that outsiders don’t come in and injure themselves on dangerous equipment. RFID can also be used to make sure that only authorized technicians operate certain equipment. Some companies use the technology to track dangerous waste and to alert workers in the event of an accident. All this helps increase safety at the workplace.
Helping you save time and increase your productivity
In warehouses, RFID has already shown its potential to help workers save time and effort as they pick stock from shelves and sort it into shipment orders. RFID-enabled forklift trucks read the tags on pallets and indicate to the driver where the pallet should be stored. RFID can also be used to track shipments arriving by land, sea or air, and the technology helps confirm containers remain closed and are kept at the right temperatures. Such advances not only save workers time, they also save effort and prevent injuries caused by repetitive motions, such as scanning and sorting.
Each year, companies have to catalogue their inventories and capital goods for the tax authorities. If these items are tagged with RFID, workers no longer have to sort through thousands of tiny items – such as the toys in a toy store or the desks in an office building. In other words, RFID simplifies the accounting process substantially, allowing workers to concentrate on more interesting tasks.
