    JRV Distribution and Bluewake Technologies sign a distribution agreement

    JRV Distribution recently agreed to represent Bluewake Technologies’ health and safety solutions, namely the bluewake drowsiness prevention solution and Chron-Optic glasses (“blue-blocker”), for the geographic sector of Quebec’s North Shore.

    Fatigue presents several challenges for the mining industry. Depending on the day-to-day work and operational setup at a given mine site, mining jobs can involve a fair amount of labor-intensive work in an environment prone to drowsiness. The use of Bluewake and Chron-Optic glasses improves presence of mind and reaction speed at work and better daytime sleep for individual working in environment with insufficient natural light. The bluewake and Chron-Optic solutions promote greater safety, productivity and promote the well-being of workers.
