BLT and Safety
If you are a pilot, a power plant operator, a crane operator or if you do anything where small errors have major consequences, we want to talk. Our technology is a simple and effective way to quickly check for fatigue and impairment. The typical test takes one minute and compares individual results to a personal baseline. Management can choose between two systems, 1. Internet based AlertnessCentral or 2. an iPhone based system, Alertometer.
Our tests are graphic, non-linguistic exercises designed to be enjoyable. They have been rigorously researched in clinical and field trials.
All BLT systems are patented. Research is funded by the CDC through National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

In fact, one-third of drivers questioned in a survey admitted they had fallen asleep at the wheel in the last 12 months. Research shows driver fatigue […]
The new Alertometer App has been published and is already in use around the world. We have made a lot of improvements. The App is now free for individual users! Letting individual users register for free makes it easier for group managers to add users to their net. We will continue to charge for group […]
