Abstract. All companies strive to eliminate work accidents. But still a lot of professions are exposed to different hazardous conditions and many work injuries and even deaths occur everyday. Monitoring of working conditions is a very important part of labor protection. Combining wireless sensor networks with wearable technology is possible to significantly improve safety delivery capability of such systems and add new functionality to them. In this work we present the design results of the uniforms inbuilt wireless sensor node for working conditions monitoring. The node is able to signalize about employee presence in relation to working facilities, and to monitor the atmosphere for temperature and combustible gases concentration. It consists of light-weighted distributed pieces which are built in to clothes and has low power consumption. The average power consumption of the node is low enough for several weeks autonomous lifetime.
