Work accident risks are minimized with our equipment monitoring app

A simple and intuitive solution provided for monitoring the safety devices of workers  engaged in risk activities. The system is designed to drastically reduce work accident risks. It constantly tracks the provided equipment to check if the wearable pieces are correctly worn during the work operations. The workers are asked to maintain a high level of attention prior to commencing work. They are not allowed to carry out work without respecting the applicable safety requirements. The use of artificial intelligence and advanced sensors help achieve this purpose.

This pioneering system is the result of synergy between two companies: Easy Servizi, involved for years in the installation and configuration of electric power, gas and water equipment, and Topnetwork, boasting expertise in the use of neural networks, robotics, and advanced sensors, as well as in the development of applications with the most popular programming languages.

Smart PPE uses a range of wearable IoT sensors connected with BLE wireless communication technology. The sensors are attached on every piece of PPE: e.g. helmets, gloves, safety jackets, shoes, etc. The data are transferred to an artificial intelligence model. It can identify situations, in which one or more devices are not worn properly. An alert is instantly generated, it warns the user and the Operations Center.

After the alert, the Operations Management apps stop functioning.

OUR EXPERIENCE

ENERGY & UTILITIES COMPANY

NEED

Our customer, a company operating in the utilities industry across Italy, wanted to check if the field service workers were always using the provided safety equipment.The purpose was to reduce the risk of accidents caused by distractions and unsafe practices.

SOLUTION

Topnetwork consultants performed a preliminary analysis to address this need. It was necessary to check the setting, the available PPE supplies and the infrastructure technical support. Subsequently, the Smart DPI was installed and configured. The sensors were connected to the equipment assigned to the users.

The system is also equipped with indicators that show the status of the sensors (eg. the battery level) because of their great number. Therefore, it always makes it possible to timely deal with anomalies and malfunctions. Improper PPE use may trigger alarms during the operations. The user and the control center receive the notification. The control center is always vigilant and ready to intervene.

Our customer submitted a request for blocking the smartphone operating software when users do not wear one piece of PPE or more. In that case, the work is temporarily interrupted.
