How it all started…

Companies have been collecting and growing data on fixed assets and plants for decades, but lack the same analytics for workers.

Machinery has been monitored for decades

Universal Site Monitoring’s founder, Emil Tastula has more than 30 years in the resource and construction industries. Whilst working in these fields, Emil personally experienced industrial incidents involving workmates. He witnessed the industrial machinery being closely monitored, but not the people who operated it.

Monitoring the safety of the most important assets: people

Emil and his cousin Andrew Thurlow, who has an IT background, set about fixing the problem. They brought onboard primary school mate David Thomson and product designer Tim Earl to create Universal Site Monitoring.

Together they formulated the concept of a real-time personal safety monitor aiming to reduce lost-time injuries (LTIs) and global fatality rates. These safety monitoring devices record and stream data in real-time, allowing proactive decision-making from facility controllers, preventing an incident from occurring in the field. Our goal is to create a safer work environment for people all around the globe.
