Digital Worker update helps businesses improve employee health, safety and productivity. Now it’s easier to deploy the system in hazardous industries. The product is even more user-friendly for metallurgy, oil and gas, energy and construction companies. By using Digital Worker, companies can reduce injury rates, reduce downtime, and improve work discipline.
Release 1.2 includes new features:
Control of PPE use and face recognition. The catalog of events is supplemented with a new event “Possible Accident”. Simple “raw” messages about impact, falling, immobility from the employee’s wearable device are combined into a common chain of events about a possible accident. Digital Worker will independently send the employee an offer for help. If there is no response, the system will notify about the occurrence, save the history and turn on the broadcast from the nearest camera when viewing the detailed information about the event. With the help of video analytics and face recognition, it is possible to determine “by face” which employee has violated labor discipline. At one of the construction sites, the customer uses Digital Worker to fine organizations whose employees violate safety rules.
Labor efficiency control. Using the system, you can visualize a picture of the working day in the format of a “heat map” and generate all necessary reports. You can check the workflow of one employee or even several teams. This tool is mainly used to monitor the contractors’ work and speed up the progress.
Rounds control. The scenario emerged as a result of the interest of our clients from different industries: oil and gas, energy, metallurgy. All this is available thanks to the appearance of the walk-through map editor, where you can conveniently digitize the bypass route by configuring the key visit parameters: days of the week, frequency (once per shift / day / week / month), the expected number of walkers, their qualifications. You can load a required route into the system and record in real time the fact that an employee passes checkpoints correctly and how much time he spends on each checkpoint. Digital Worker compares the round schedule with information coming through the wearable devices and notifies the dispatcher when the equipment is left unattended for a long time. One of the oil companies plans to use the system to control pipelines. The purpose of by-passes is to control the equipment.
Access control and work in hazardous areas. The system allows you to record the entry of an employee into a hazardous area, for example, an area near operating equipment, an area with a high content of gases, etc. The new version of the platform is prepared for integration with external systems – it is possible to send messages to the external circuit about entering and exiting hazardous areas. Digital Worker update can also interact with collision avoidance devices and report hazards in the area.
Control of work orders. The platform is now integrated with most of the systems for the electronic approval of work orders. The user can highlight a prohibited or dangerous areas on the map. If an outsider appears on the site, the system immediately sends a notification. In the update, we have completely rethought the interface for working with an event: now the focus is on the map and “snapshot” of the event, photos and videos are combined in a convenient gallery. In the Camera section you can view the stream from the nearest camera. The history will help restore the sequence of alarm messages from the employee’s device.
Digital Worker has proven its usefulness in specific scenarios, it is quite easy to integrate it into the client’s current IT landscape and connect any wearable devices selected for the client’s tasks and conditions: climate, open/closed rooms, required signal reading range. However, it is also necessary to solve many organizational issues – to introduce a new approach to business, and, most importantly, to convince your own people of the benefits of innovations.
