Contact Harald, a leading innovator in voice-based intelligent assistance technology, is excited to announce the launch of its latest feature, “Ask Harry.” This cutting-edge solution is specifically designed to address the critical issue of lone worker safety in the mining industry, offering automated monitoring and escalation protocols.

The Urgency of Lone Worker Safety in Mining

The mining sector is fraught with hazards, and lone workers are particularly vulnerable due to the isolated and often dangerous environments they operate in. Traditional safety measures, although essential, have limitations in real-time monitoring and timely intervention, leaving lone workers exposed to potential risks.

About “Ask Harry”: A Game-Changer in Lone Worker Safety

“Ask Harry” is an AI-powered, voice-activated intelligent assistant that serves as an extra layer of support for lone workers. It is engineered to automatically check on the well-being of lone workers at predefined intervals. If a worker fails to respond within a set timeframe, “Ask Harry” initiates an escalation process, alerting supervisors and emergency services, thereby ensuring immediate action.
Key Features and Benefits

Automated Check-ins: “Ask Harry” conducts regular, automated check-ins with lone workers, reducing the administrative burden on supervisors.

Escalation Protocols: In the absence of a response, the system triggers an escalation event, ensuring that no alert goes unnoticed.

Voice-Activated Interface: The voice-activated system allows workers to stay focused on their tasks, enhancing both safety and productivity.

Multilingual Support: “Ask Harry” can translate critical information into more than 30 languages, making it accessible to a diverse workforce.

Integration and Compatibility

“Ask Harry” seamlessly integrates with existing safety systems and can interface into most digital radio systems. Its flexibility makes it a valuable addition to any mining operation’s safety toolkit.

A Commitment to Safety and Innovation

“Ask Harry” is more than just a feature; it is a testament to Contact Harald’s unwavering commitment to worker safety and technological innovation. By automating the lone worker monitoring process, “Ask Harry” fills the gaps in traditional safety measures, setting a new standard in the industry.
