The Worker Safety solution incorporates smart watches that capture workers’ health data. Leveraging MIOTY connectivity, health and location data of several remote field workers are reliably and securely transmitted to an Advantech edge gateway, where they are relayed to the Hitachi Solutions IoT Service Hub on Microsoft Azure cloud. The solution integrates advanced analytics and data science technology, resulting in a reliable, cost-effective, end-to-end safety offering that is simple to deploy and provides instant visibility to a wealth of actionable operational intelligence.
The solution helps companies meet their Zero Harm and other safety initiatives targets by avoiding risks, decreasing unplanned failures and enabling a safer and healthier work environment. The solution also uses machine learning to continually analyze data to identify the possible incidents and provide a more comprehensive understanding of what occurs in a workplace environment, such as distinguishing normal fluctuations in air pressure vs a potentially problematic anomaly.
