ERGONOMIC & EFFICIENT MOBILE TECHNOLOGY USE
The Two Hand Touch line of harnesses makes working with tablets out in the field easier, safer and more efficient than ever.
The Challenge of Safety
For utility providers, the safety of linemen and all other workers is paramount. As
implementation of new technologies, such as tablets, for data analysis and
data input becomes more commonplace, a growing concern for safety and
efficiency has developed. Employees working in the field, climbing utility
poles and working at great heights should always have both of their hands
available. When one hand is pre-occupied by holding or working on a
tablet, the workers’ safety is greatly reduced, and they are unable to
react as quickly in potentially dangerous situations. Research put forth by
CNBC in 2017 showed that the fatal injury rate for power linemen alone is
21 in 100,000.
A Safe Solution
Placing the tablet in a safe and secure harness, such as the Two-Hand-
Touch SafeT-HT, frees up linemens’ hands, allowing them to react as
necessary while securing the tablet and offering quick access to the
technology needed to do the job effectively. Putting the weight of the tablet
closer to the user’s core — or their center of gravity — is more
ergonomic and decreases hand fatigue and cramping. Designed with high-
visibility fabrics, the SafeT-HT ensures all safety protocols are adhered to,
whether the tablet is in use or not. Adjustable viewing angles allow for best
usage of the tablet regardless of the position of the user, and built-in
pockets provide easy access to tools, radios and more.
Providing utility workers with the safest tools, while also increasing
efficiency, is key to ensuring a better work environment and, in turn, better
service to customers.
