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.
