Editor’s note: Fatigue Science will be at MINExpo 2021 from September 13–15! Check out our booth (#217) and see how Readi offers a comprehensive suite of fatigue management tools tailored to each role in your organization.

Hexagon’s Mining division announced today that it is partnering with Fatigue Science, a leader in fatigue and performance predictive analytics and fatigue management information systems. Combined with its real-time operator alertness and collision avoidance solutions, Hexagon will now be able to help customers further protect and optimize their people and equipment with Fatigue Science’s Readi platform for predictive fatigue management.

Hexagon and Fatigue Science are at the forefront of innovation to help mines increase output and prevent accidents caused by fatigued and/or distracted operators of vehicles and equipment. Today’s partnership signifies the completion of a 360º safety management platform – providing complete, end-to-end visibility into operator fatigue, alertness and collision avoidance in a single offering.

Leveraging MineEnterprise and MineProtect portfolios with actionable data from the Fatigue Science platform, Hexagon will be able to provide predictive fatigue insights to mine leadership, HSE teams, front-line supervisors and operators themselves, empowering informed decisions to continually improve safety and productivity.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Fatigue Science, whose record in enhancing safety and productivity across mining, heavy industry and other complex organizations speaks for itself,” said Ryan Hawes, Vice-President, MineProtect. “We couldn’t be more aligned on our core belief, namely the most important assets coming out of a mine are the people who make mining possible.”

Andrew Morden, CEO of Fatigue Science, said: “We are delighted to join forces with Hexagon to address the large and rapidly growing need we’re seeing – particularly in mining – for a comprehensive, data-driven solution that maximizes human performance and reduces operator risk. With Readi’s scientifically-validated predictive data on operator fatigue, and Hexagon’s proven solutions for real-time operator alertness and collision avoidance, mining firms now have a 360º view of the risks and opportunities that affect their workforce, all on a single platform.”
