A comprehensive safety software platform will support Honeywell’s portfolio of connected industrial worker solutions – including its line of ammonia detectors – which are designed to help customers keep their facilities and personnel safe, boost productivity, and lower compliance and administrative costs.

Honeywell Sotera assists connected worker offerings such as two-way communications, geo-location and automatic safety alerts to provide employers with real-time awareness of safety incidents and the ability to respond quickly if an employee is injured in a remote location. The software’s first rollout, Honeywell Sotera-Express, will replace legacy software applications for the company’s wearable gas detector portfolio with a user-friendly software interface. The software will make it easier for customers using different Honeywell devices to test, maintain and generate reports.

The software simplifies device configuration, testing and maintenance across all Honeywell brands and streamlines compliance administration for safety managers by generating testing, certification, incident and other reports faster. It also incorporates advanced cyber-security features to protect data.
