Canaria Technologies is a market leader in predictive biometrics systems, providing non-invasive medical-grade wearable devices powered by proprietary biometric algorithms to predict & prevent cognitive fatigue and heat stress. We are working with the world's biggest companies across the global resources sector, allowing technology and safety to come together in life-threatening situations.
WORKING ACROSS RESOURCES
This is a breakthrough in early warning systems: moving from single-use-product solutions to multi-faceted predictive biometrics systems that can be constantly improving. Our wearable equipment is akin to the difference between a beeper phone and a smartphone: multi-sensor wearable computational hardware that may be updated with each new version of the software.
Did you know Cognitive Fatigue currently accounts for 2/3rds of all industrial accidents in Australia?
Safety-related work injuries in Australia has cost AUD$61.8B, equitable to more than 4% of Australia’s GDP*. In 2019, there were 144 reported work-related deaths in Australia*.
Heat Stress is a global problem that costs Australia alone - $6.9B annually*
A single Heat Stress incident costs an average of $6,500 AUD in rostering expenses, investigation, and rehabilitation*. At least 1,600 reported serious Heat Stress incidents to occur each summer in Australian workplaces*.
