TruTouch Technologies to exhibit at OSHA Oil & Gas Safety Conference in Dallas

Friday, Nov 30, 2012

TruTouch Technologies, a pioneer in non-invasive workplace sobriety assurance systems, will be at the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Oil & Gas Safety Conference in Dallas, Texas. The conference, which takes place December 4 and 5 at the Sheraton Hotel, brings together key oil and gas safety professionals and regulatory representatives. At the conference, TruTouch will be demonstrating the TruTouch 2500, a safe and non-invasive optical sensor that quickly and accurately measures alcohol intoxication while simultaneously verifying user identity.

“By allowing companies to easily test daily or frequently, the TruTouch 2500 changes employees’ behavior toward alcohol, greatly reducing the number of alcohol-related accidents, and increases overall productivity.”

Companies in the oil, gas and petrochemical industries can use the TruTouch 2500 to test employees prior to, during, and after shifts, preventing access of intoxicated individuals to safety-sensitive areas and equipment. In 2011, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control published data that showed heavy drinkers cost the U.S. economy over $220 billion per year. Lost productivity accounts for 70 percent of this waste, while healthcare costs account for 11 percent. The TruTouch 2500 offers a time- and cost-effective solution for both alcohol intoxication detection and deterrence in work environments.

“We are excited to join the OSHA Oil & Gas Safety Conference to present our deterrence solution to key players in the industry,” said Oscar Lazaro, Senior Vice President of Sales and Strategic Partnerships at TruTouch Technologies. “By allowing companies to easily test daily or frequently, the TruTouch 2500 changes employees’ behavior toward alcohol, greatly reducing the number of alcohol-related accidents, and increases overall productivity.”

The TruTouch 2500 is a tabletop instrument that can detect tissue alcohol concentration by measuring alcohol levels through the skin, using a safe near infrared light and an optical touch pad. The device also features biometric capability to verify user identity to ensure integrity of the testing process. The TruTouch 2500 is the first practicable solution for large-scale, inexpensive and frequent testing of employees at point of need. Unlike a breathalyzer, the TruTouch device can accurately scan nearly 200 employees per hour, on site, in a self-administered manner, eliminating the need for supervisory staff.
