THE SCIENCE BEHIND ALERTMETER

Based on the growing field of fatigue management
Whether you’re going to have your employees download the app on their phones or use the AlertMeter on touch screen tablets, getting the AlertMeter into your company is easy.
  • Bowles-Langley Technology
  • AlertMeter is a patented impairment detection system that was designed from a technology developed by Bowles-Langley Technology in San Francisco, California called the BLT Alertness Test. When touchscreen technology became widespread and accessible, the BLT Test was adapted by Predictive Safety for use in occupational environments, and it became the AlertMeter fit-for-work program.
    ABOUT BOWLES-LANGLEY
  • The Research
  • Funded in part by NOISH, the BLT Test went through three trials intended to achieve three critical aims:

    1. Determine the relative difficulty of the different possible shape combinations with a goal of improved test reliability.
    2. Measure validity (sensitivity to fatigue induced impairment) and reliability (test-retest stability).
    3. Assess the acceptability and feasibility of the system for managers and operators in an operational setting. 

    All three aims were successfully attained. All subjects were able to understand the test and respond properly using the left and right arrow keys on a computer keyboard. Very few subjects indicated that the test was too fast, too difficult or too long.

    This finding confirms the premise that the BLT Alertness Test is acceptable for the general working population. Since the time of the original development and study, the AlertMeter has undergone rigorous testing with new improvements that make the system more accurate, and more practical for workplace use.  Predictive Safety holds 3 patents and 15 patents pending on the system.

  • Henry Bowles
  • Henry Bowles is a Board Member of Predictive Safety and the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Bowles-Langley Technology, a company that developed the original platform that became the AlertMeter for testing human brain performance.
    Prior to his involvement in the field of human performance, Henry started the manufacturing business Bowlux Furniture and a widely read architecture and art publication called Archetype Magazine and traveled extensively for Conde Naste on architectural photography assignments. Henry worked for Crowley Maritime in the late 1980’s in strategic planning and helped develop a plan to build double hull tankers.
    Henry founded Double H Tankers to develop advanced designs for tankers and associated technology. In collaboration with Dr. Ted Langley, Henry developed a number of computer-based tests to check employees’ level of alertness who were engaged in dangerous and critical tasks. He and Dr. Theodore Langley incorporated Bowles-Langley Technology, Inc. which has conducted government-supported (NIH, NIOSH) research to perfect an alertness testing system.
