Despite the many regulations set in place to minimize the risk of hazardous accidents, the construction industry unfortunately remains one of the most dangerous industries to work in. Whilst the eradication of risks in the construction industry is unattainable, multiple technologies are continuously working towards increasing construction worker's safety, and Twiceme HTH-Technology is one of them.

In 2023, Twiceme Technology went from being a one-feature product to a multiple-feature product, a Help the Helpers platform. The features that the HTH-platform offers can be grouped into two different domains, the emergency domain which helps construction workers after an incident has occurred, and the non-emergency domain which aims to help prevent accidents from occurring. Follow along as we explore the new and innovative Twiceme features that the HTH-platform provides, that can help protect construction workers before and after an incident. 

Non-Emergency Features that Protect Construction Workers before an Accident

Twiceme supports the prevention of accidents by monitoring the health of the equipment - thus contributing to a better safety culture on the construction site.

Product Inspection

Harness inspections are essential to safety. Ideally, construction workers should do a thorough inspection of their PPE and Fall Protection equipment before each use. Additionally, a formal inspection of fall protection equipment, including full body harnesses, must be performed, recorded, and signed at least once per year by a Competent Person other than the user. This innovative Product Inspection feature represents the next evolution in worker safety, offering a modern and simple alternative to traditional paper-based inspection processes or the more complex systems that necessitate both account setup and system integrations. To guarantee a convenient and beneficial tool, Twiceme has developed this feature in collaboration with market-leading professionals. 

Key Features of Twiceme’s Product Inspection include:

  • Localized In-App Product Inspection, eliminating the need for external databases or system integrations.
  • Streamlined digital signing process for the authorized personnel.
  • Ability to inspect multiple products on one report, from one device.
  • Flexible export options, allowing you to save files in either xlsx or pdf format according to your preference.

Equipment Health

The helmets that Twiceme HTH-Technology is being integrated into have an estimated lifetime, however, only a few helmet wearers are following the recommended lifetimes of their helmets. The primary reason being that they are unaware of the existence of a helmet's lifetime. 

The average lifetime of a construction helmet is 10 years, however, dropping the helmet on the ground or hitting your head while wearing it can affect the lifetime of the helmet. Through this feature, construction workers can keep track of their equipment’s health and get notified every year of the remaining lifetime of the helmet. For the time being, this feature is available for selected partner brands such as Julbo and Salomon, but more brands are continuously being added.

Emergency Feature that Protects Construction Workers After an Accident

After an incident, Twiceme supports swift rescue responses and recovery with time-saving information.

Integrated Medical ID

Ten years ago when the three founders of Twiceme, who are military professionals, were out in the fields, they experienced real-life situations where access to personal medical information was the difference between life and death. Thus, a tool was developed to assist rescue professionals and/or bystanders, in taking the appropriate actions in the event of an emergency, and that tool is the Medical ID.

Through this feature, Twiceme lets users upload their Medical ID onto various personal protective equipment such as helmets, goggles, and jackets. By tapping a smartphone's NFC antenna on the Twiceme symbol of an incapacitated person’s gear, a bystander or first responder can access their medical information which can speed up rescue scenarios in the event of an emergency. 

Conclusion

To summarize, Twiceme's evolution from a single-feature product to the comprehensive Help the Helpers (HTH) platform highlights a significant leap forward in enhancing safety measures within the inherently hazardous construction industry. By bridging both non-emergency and emergency scenarios, Twiceme HTH-Technology introduces groundbreaking features designed to protect construction workers before and after incidents occur. The non-emergency features, including Product Inspection and Equipment Health, offer streamlined, modern alternatives to traditional safety processes, fostering a culture of diligence and compliance.

In emergencies, the Medical ID, Rescue Alert, and Friends Alert features demonstrate Twiceme's commitment to rapid response and communication, providing invaluable tools for both individuals and rescue professionals. As Twiceme continues to expand its network and features, it stands as a beacon of innovation, paving the way for a safer and more secure future in the dynamic landscape of the construction industry. With technology like Twiceme's HTH-Platform, the industry takes a step closer to achieving the crucial balance between progress and worker well-being.
