FireHUD's Biotrac Platform Wins Occupational Health & Safety New Product of the Year Award

July 26, 2021

Recognized as one of the top products in safety; FireHUD’s BioTrac Platform was recently recognized by an independent panel of highly qualified judges as a leader in Safety Wearable Devices.

The BioTrac Platform is purpose built for teams that perform demanding jobs and allows for a holistic view on how a workforce is doing at the personnel, worksite and organization levels. Especially important in the field of safety is knowing and alerting on heart rate, core temperature, and exertion in real time. 

“If there is one thing that has been learned in the past 18 months, it is that organizations need to prioritize the health and safety of their workers in order to have productive, effective businesses,” OH&S editor Sydny Shepard said. “Manufacturers in the safety industry have long worked to provide compliant and innovative products and services to advance worker protection around the country, and this year is no different. It is thrilling to see further developed technology and products year after year, and I am so glad we have the opportunity to award those who are working to make occupational injuries and fatalities a thing of the past.”

The Occupational Health & Safety New Product of the Year Award program honors the outstanding product development achievements of health and safety manufacturers whose products are considered particularly noteworthy in their ability to improve workplace safety.

“At FireHUD, our vision is to enhance situational awareness so that preventable injuries never occur,” said Zack Braun, CEO at FireHUD. “To be recognized alongside the safety industry’s perennial top performers is humbling. This recognition of the BioTrac Platform is a testament to the commitment to new technologies and the creation of the connected safety worker environment of the future.”
