Best Mobile App Awards has awarded Kenzen’s mobile app, that alerts workers when their bodies are under stress in hot conditions, its Best New Mobile App Award.
Best Mobile App Awards judges review thousands of nominations and recognize new apps that are making big impacts. The judges judge apps on usefulness, overall quality, uniqueness in the market, user interface, and design.
The Kenzen app alerts workers when they need to rest, hydrate, and cool their bodies. This prevents heat stress and fatalities in indoor and outdoor work environments. The app also alerts supervisors when workers are in danger. On-screen alerts indicate when there is a need for intervention. A second alert indicates when workers can safely return to the job.
Industrial companies in construction, manufacturing, firefighting, agriculture, utilities, transportation, and oil and gas use the Kenzen system. It is a SaaS system that includes a wearable device worn by workers that gathers physiological data that triggers alerts when the worker’s core body temperature is too high. The continuous monitoring system keeps workers safe and helps companies proactively manage risk and productivity. Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) leaders use this data to enhance heat safety across the company.
The three views of data were designed by Kenzen to protect workers’ private health information.
Founded in 2016, Kenzen is workforce safety technology at the intersection of unparalled Heat Science and Climate Tech.
