Our story
This is where we hang our hats.
What started out on the factory floor with us wearing the same hardhats as everyone else has turned into a pioneering technological breakthrough in industrial safety monitoring and productivity assurance. Understanding from hands-on experience led us to develop advanced protective helmets — smart hardhats that incorporate sensors and peer-to-peer connectivity for real-time situational awareness. Followed by breakthrough, hyper-accurate and dependable RTLS geolocation software that works beyond GPS. And ultimately leading to KYRA, our premier IoT platform that forever changes how data is analyzed and utilized, turning it into actionable intelligence. A new way of seeing things that couldn’t be seen before, empowering the workforce to make better immediate decisions. Decisions that save lives, improve response times and tactics, and increase productivity. In all, it is the world’s first and only comprehensive system of its kind. And while it is years ahead, this is just the beginning of Guardhat’s data technology revolution.
Our mission
To safeguard your people, your business and your bottom line.
Deep in the isolation of a coal mine 300 feet below the ground. Adrift on a desolate rig 125 miles off shore. Just down the block in a bustling warehouse. Guardhat tirelessly pioneers to keep those who put their lives on the line every day reliably connected, safe and productive. Which in turn keeps your business safe and reduces costs associated with mishaps and other critical industrial events. We do it by developing solutions that are unique, intelligent and ahead of their time. And by never forgetting the value of what’s at stake.
Our company
We don’t do “close enough.”
We’ve been there. So we know there is no place for “almost” when it comes to safety and productivity. That’s why there’s Guardhat. The multi-product, feature-packed intelligent safety system that integrates cutting edge wearable technology and advanced proprietary software. A system that collects and analyzes data to improve industrial productivity and safety. While it also detects, alerts and helps prevent hazardous industrial work-related incidents. A system that keeps you connected. Not some of the time. Or most of the time. But all of the time.
Our team
Many hats. A force of one.
We are miners, technologists, steelmakers and engineers. We are passionate dreamers. Innovators. And explorers. But above all, we are the ones who gained firsthand experience with industrial issues in the workforce. So we know what the workers and operators go through, and we decided to do something about it. Our combined knowledge and skills enable us to create groundbreaking, high-tech systems that improve productivity and save lives in industrial workplaces around the world. This is who we are. This is what we do.
