Safer Worksites

How It Works


  Our 2ND-SKN (patent-pending) wearable device will send your on-the-ground team an alert, based on their proximity to heavy machinery or zoned off sections of your job site.  Our device is fully customizable and unlike other geofencing solutions, it does NOT require a vast array of beacons or the perfect environment to work its magic. We’ll get you going in 3 easy steps

STEP 1: Place Sensor on Vehicles/Machinery and Workers

Place Zonetap’s 2ND-SKN 

sensor in the cab of each onsite vehicle or machine in order to track the vehicle’s second by second movement.  Each worker wears a 2ND-SKN sensor to help protect them from moving machinery, alerting them of potential dangers from being in the path of trucks or heavy machinery. The sensor can also alert supervisors if a worker is not moving, or has fallen. Compared to other GPS/GNSS solutions which are only accurate up to 3 meters in perfect weather conditions, our sensor is accurate within 1.4 centimeters(!) and works both indoors & outdoors, rain or shine.

STEP 2: Setup Static and Mobile Safety Zones

Login to our  unique and patented software portal as an admin to determine alert sensitivity and to create dynamic alert zones around each onsite vehicle, worker, or specific section of a job site. Static zones can be set as designated “no-fly" zones for worker safety. Dynamic or mobile zones surround each worker and each machine. The dynamic zone creates an invisible perimeter of the specific shape of the machinery or vehicle. Set the alerts and zone size around workers of machinery to fit the needs of your work space.

STEP 3: Activate Sensors and Manage Worksite via private Portal

Once your on-the-ground team puts on our customized wearable device, they’ll receive a combined audio, visual, and haptic response anytime they are within arms reach of danger. We can also give you and your team custom reports and an radar like application that gives workers, managers, and machine operators a bird’s eye view of their job site.

Accident Prevention by Industry

Below are a few ways our customers have started to use our next-generation geofencing technology. If you’re interested in testing out how Zonetap can help your team, please click on “Learn More" to signup for a pilot. 

Solid Waste Removal Industry

  • Problem: One of the most common ways workers are killed or injured on landfills is by getting struck by heavy machinery, usually due to poor visibility. But out of the box GPS solutions that researchers have tried are only reliably accurate within 3 square meters, which means they send out a lot of false-positive alerts which cause workers to tune out alerts.
  • Our Solution: We created a helmet that is capable of giving workers and machine operators an audio, visual, and haptic alert when a worker is up to 1.4 centimeters (!) of heavy machinery.


Wildland Firefighters

  • Problem: Dense smoke and unknown terrain make it difficult for fire engineers to see who’s on the ground around them, which is why “getting run over" is the second leading cause of death among wildland firefighters (view report).
  • Custom Solution: We can create a radar like application that sits on a tablet within the cab of the fire engine, that gives the driver a bird’s eye view of the field, including the location of all firefighters.


Logging and Forestry

  • Problem:  One of the leading causes of deaths in the logging industry is when workers inadvertently enter the tree falling zone for logging machinery, and although researchers believe GPS technology can be useful to fight against this, out of the box GPS is unreliable for most canopies and stand types (view report).
  • Our Solution:  We created a customized hardware solution that attaches to each harvester machine and sends ground workers an alert anytime they are within the harvester’s “tree fall zone." This solution works regardless of canopy type or stand maturity.



  • Problem: One of the most common causes of fatalities on crowded docks is getting struck by vehicles, but traditional GPS technology doesn’t work well inside loading docks (view report).
  • Custom Solution: We created firmware that can be installed on each front-loader or forklift vehicle that causes the machine to stop if it is within 2 meters of an on-the-ground dock worker.
