Construction sites are dangerous places to work. Out of every 5,000 private-industry worker fatalities, 20 percent are in construction. Moreover, during a 45-year career, there is a 1 in 200 chance that a construction worker will die from a work-related incident. (Safety & Health Magazine) Construction also results in many non-fatal injuries that cost companies millions of dollars per year. Statistics show that construction companies should pay more attention to safety monitoring, and UNISEM can help with it by providing safety monitoring solutions based on intelligent video analytics technology.
One of the basic construction safety requirements is site access management. With UniTraffic’s vehicle detection and license plate recognition, and UniFaceX’s face recognition, and its new adjustment, body temperature measurement functions, all entrances will be secure and safe even in times of pandemic.
The most common rule at the construction is “wear your PPE (personal protective equipment)”. But unfortunately, not everyone follows this rule, and sometimes the reason is human forgetfulness. UNISEM’s UniSafety due to Deep Learning trained video analytics detects the absence of PPE and inform the workers at the site through a loudspeaker. This kind of reminders will help to develop a habit to wear PPE which consequently will reduce the injuries and lower the fatality rate as well.
UniSafety also automatically detects hazardous situations like fire, smoke, spark, materials drop, left object at walkways and crush injury danger which are the common reasons for injuries. The solution detects abnormal processes like outage, intrusion as well. By setting triggered notifications (dashboard notification, SMS) the supervisor will always be in control of the safety. Do not forget, that immediate response is key to save lives.
