BLT and Safety
Our tests for human performance are vital tools for ensuring safety in dangerous workplace environments. Used with good shift management and scheduling the BLT test provides another level of protection against fatigue and human impairment.

We have entered the smart phone/tablet world with an application that runs on both the iOS and Android platforms. Please see: Alertometer.

The 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).

Accidents caused by tired drivers may actually be much higher: determining whether fatigue played a role in a crash […]

The Long Drive Home

The case has taken a long time but it is finally reaching its conclusion. The judge’s ruling could initiate significant reforms. Not the best way to change a system, but one way. While we stress the importance of pre work testing, it may be that post work testing is even more important. In some jobs […]
