Workplace accidents usually occur as a result of working environment conditions, management mistakes, lack of timely and adequate maintenance, ignoring human factors, lack of adequate and appropriate training, lack of supervision, or a combination of several or all of these factors interacting with each other. However, all of the factors that cause occupational accidents can be reduced down to two main factors. These are namely, unsafe conditions in the workplace and unsafe practices of the employees.
Approximately 41% of these occupational accidents occur in industrial areas (production floors, storage, loading, maintenance and repair shops) and unfortunately 1 out of every 220 occupational accidents result in death1. And the vast majority of these occupational accidents can be prevented or quickly intervened, and can be managed in way that minimizes the losses if necessary measures are taken and implemented.
While it is effective to create the necessary workflows and procedures and to provide training to reduce accidents and ensure a safer work environment, it is now possible to provide occupational health and organizational safety with novel methods by effectively integrating the enhanced technologies into workplaces.
Our Video Analytics Solution adds artificial intelligence to cameras to prevent accidents and create a safe work environment by analyzing video content in real time. That enables security cameras to take on additional tasks for companies and monitor use of PPE, speed up the arrival of necessary teams to the scene by informing them earlier, or warn employees before an accident occurs with prediction algorithms.
As in Covid-19, video analytics applications reduces the impact of epidemic thanks to its features such as monitoring social distancing, mask wearing control and crowd analysis, especially in epidemic diseases. These applications can provide instant alerts for all scenarios, cautioning users instantly with visual, audible or SMS, e-mail notifications.
