Wearables monitor health, safety at work

IBM Research in Haifa, Israel, is developing wearable tech to monitor health and safety at work. Sensors will be integrated into helmets, vests, and gloves, to track worker activity and location.  Data can identify risky situations, such as exposure to extreme temperatures, noise, and gas.  Lifting angles that can injure the spine, overexertion and hydration can also be monitored. The worker and control center can be notified before an accident happens, and treatment can be hastened in the event of a accident.
