Wearable technologies with workforce tracking capabilities have become prominent technological innovations in the mining industry. These tools maximize worker management to improve safety and minimize accidents.

Workforce tracking devices improve operator safety in mines by enabling radio frequency identification (RFID) personnel monitoring and visibility in real-time, allowing workers to be tracked and located instantly in case of emergencies. In these situations, companies can improve incident response times with immediate notifications. They can also restrict access to certain areas to prevent accidents and ultimately minimize safety hazards.

Workforce tracking technologies are also valuable for machine inspections and field maintenance by improving operator-based care.
