If you know Papertrail then you’ll know we’re passionate about modernising the way personal protective equipment (PPE) is managed, to improve safety and efficiency while cutting costs.
It’s a message we try to spread in all our communications, including this blog. And it’s not just us who are banging the drum for more advanced PPE management.
DMM, for example, has been leading developments in PPE for more than 30 years, and is a big advocate for smarter management systems.
That’s why this month I’m delighted to welcome DMM’s product manager, Rob Partridge, on Papertrail’s first-ever webinar: ‘unlocking the secret to smart PPE management.’ This webinar is aimed at novice and experienced PPE managers alike and will help you:
See why PPE manufacturers such as DMM now recommend all their customers adopt smart management systems.
Understand how you can immediately save money and improve efficiency with smart PPE management.
Experience how quick and easy it is to implement smart PPA management systems.
The 45-minute webinar is completely free and will kick off at 4pm GMT on Thursday April 19th. Besides hearing from myself and Rob, you can get to ask us all those niggling questions you’ve been wanting to get answers to.
To make sure you don’t miss you place on this unique webinar, take a minute to sign up now and block out your diary at 4pm on the 19th. I look forward to you joining us for what will undoubtedly be a really valuable interactive session.
The typical arboriculture professional undertakes difficult, dangerous work regularly, often at a height; managing their own safety without causing unnecessary harm to the trees, local environment and anyone nearby.
Working in arboriculture is three times more dangerous than the construction sector, making it one of the highest risk sectors in the UK. Choosing and maintaining the right equipment is essential for the safety of those doing the work and teams on the ground.
Product recalls are a nightmare for manufacturers of safety equipment. At some point, no matter how stringent the quality control or testing procedures, most manufacturers have issued a recall notice.Continue Reading…
Health and safety compliance was never meant to be about paperwork. Behind most laws are practical, real-world problems that need solutions. Managing health and safety, whether for yourself, boss or clients is about taking those practical steps, then documenting everything from equipment inspections to training. Continue Reading…
Papertrail partnered with DMM in 2015 to launch a revolutionary new technology designed to improve safety, accountability and efficiency for safety equipment users worldwide. DMM iD uses RFID chips in-built into DMM safety equipment to uniquely identify equipment and instantly record inspections using Papertrail’s cloud-based safety management system.
What is DMM iD technology?
DMM iD technology keeps safety and security in mind. RFID chips are built into DMM equipment during the manufacturing process – containing unique product information. This equipment, when bought, can then be easily scanned by an RFID reader (similar to a barcode reader) which will pick up the information from the chip and record it instantly in Papertrail’s cloud-based safety management system. Buy an RFID reader from the Papertrail shop here.
Not only does DMM iD help counteract the rising problem of counterfeit PPE, but it also helps users collect and record important information about the usage and inspection of safety equipment through a seamless integration with Papertrail’s cloud-based safety management system.
Why is it revolutionary?
Unique product information, such as a serial number, is the only foolproof way to identify whether or not a product is genuine or counterfeit. RFID chips are the best way to present this information, as they are completely integrated with the safety systems you use, and are indelible – unlike ink or paint, which can fade over time.
DMM iD integrates seamlessly with Papertrail: the time spent creating records and making inspections can be reduced by 90% by using an RFID reader. Likewise, the accuracy of safety management data is increased!
Improve your asset inventory management with DMM iD 2.0 – Distance Reading! To complement the current RFiD solution, now read multiple items at the same time from a distance. Your equipment is grouped into kitbags with iD Tags ready to be scanned from a distance. DMM iD 2.0 is new and available in 2020, first introduced at the A+A Trade Fair in Düsseldorf – see below a demo of the new technology.
Papertrail aims to help businesses around the world to reduce the risk of accidents and cut inspection times. Using DMM RFID PPE Technology combined with the Papertrail app, you can improve safety, efficiency for equipment users and form a smart equipment management system.
Smart PPE management systems can help reduce administrative workloads by more than 90%. Download a copy of the white paper for FREE on ‘How to design and develop a smart PPE management system’, created for Equipment Managers to guarantee your PPE management system is smart!
