Business owners would probably do anything short of human sacrifices to reduce workplace accidents and the ensuing worker's comp payments. A new mHealth platform that focuses on the "near misses" might just be the answer.
WorkplaceAware launched its platform roughly one year ago, pairing a mobile app with the MessageQube, a mini cellular desktop printer that receives texts messages and photos from any cellular phone. The setup is designed to enable employees to quickly report any near-accidents and send photographs from the cellphones to supervisors, bypassing what might otherwise be a tedious reporting procedure and enabling management to respond quickly to any situation that could lead to a more serious accident or injury.
