Worker Safety & Productivity: A Paradigm Shift

When we think of innovation, 'workplace safety' might not immediately spring to mind. This oversight is largely due to the tech industry's focus on newer sectors, leaving traditional fields like manufacturing and mining underserved. However, the trend towards consumerizing innovation cannot overshadow the significant benefits that the industrial safety sector can gain from technological advancements. As a technology company, Aatmunn recognizes the critical importance of human life and is committed to developing solutions that go beyond mere compliance with safety regulations.

The industrial world is increasingly acknowledging the necessity of workplace safety, a realization underscored by the predicted growth of the industrial safety market to USD 5.41 billion by 2025. The economic rationale for such investments is compelling, given the loss of over 70 million productive days in 2017 due to workplace accidents, costing the economy nearly $162 million. Moreover, a focus on safety is proven to enhance productivity, making it an essential consideration for any organization.

Despite the technological progress made in everyday life, the frequency of workplace accidents remains a glaring issue. Currently, a significant portion of safety budgets is allocated to equipment meant to protect property and plant equipment rather than preventing accidents before they happen. This approach is insufficient; the industry requires robust technological solutions to proactively identify, prevent, and mitigate risks to workers' safety.

Industrial environments are fraught with hazards, including heavy machinery, power tools, and dense worker populations. Traditional safety training methods have proven to be inadequate. Aatmunn believes in shifting towards data-driven, contextualized instructions to cultivate a culture of safety where workers adhere to protocols autonomously.

Most safety measures rely on reactive metrics such as lost-time incidents and severity ratios. It's crucial for organizations to adopt a preventative mindset, developing strategies to anticipate and mitigate risks before they manifest. Aatmunn's IoT ecosystem, including wearables and a comprehensive software infrastructure, serves as a testament to the potential of technology in revolutionizing workplace safety.

Our Safety Control Center (SCC) application offers real-time notifications, responses, and advanced analytics to enhance decision-making. The Aatmunn wearables provide geo-localization, real-time sensor data, and audio/video communication capabilities, enabling:

  • Direct insights into the challenges faced by workers.
  • Precise worker location tracking within one second.
  • Heat mapping to identify potential hazards.
  • Improved emergency response times and safety compliance insights.
  • Prevention of root causes of safety incidents through features like RTLS location tracking, environmental sensors, SOS buttons, and geofencing.
  • Enhanced critical response times, improving overall safety and preventing accidents and incidents of sexual harassment.

Moreover, our solutions significantly boost productivity by addressing common challenges such as overtime and time log inaccuracies, enhancing time and attendance management through RFID-enabled badges.

The role of Digital Twins in the industrial sector cannot be overstated. By digitizing assets, systems, and processes, Digital Twins enable organizations to optimize industrial performance for better business outcomes. Aatmunn leverages Digital Twins to monitor, simulate, and control industrial assets effectively, ensuring ongoing optimization.

Predictive maintenance, facilitated by continuous sensor data and comprehensive analytics, prevents unplanned downtime, directly benefiting asset and employee productivity. Our wearables and sensors offer deep insights into potential hazards, maintaining high safety standards and productivity.

Remote support is another area where Aatmunn's solutions excel, offering advanced telephony, AV communications, and media recording/streaming capabilities. This technology ensures efficient operational support, reducing the need for onsite expert visits and significantly impacting productivity.
