Revolutionizing Worker Safety with Innovative IoT and LPWAN Solutions
In many industries, worker safety remains a primary concern and challenge. The International Labor Organization, reported that 2.78 million deaths are caused by occupational accidents and illnesses globally each year and 374 million non-fatal injuries, most of which lead to extended work absences. This has had a devastating impact on businesses and workers and has resulted in significant economic loss. IoT provides tremendous opportunities to transform health and safety management in modern workplaces. IoT devices like wearables capture real-time workers' activity and health parameters, while environmental sensors simultaneously monitor working conditions such as ambient gases, temperature, humidity, noise and radiation. An advanced cloud platform with built-in intelligence can analyze situational data and trigger timely alerts to secure employees' safety and productivity, when fatal or intolerable events are detected. While 'last-mile' connectivity can enable seamless data communication from massive stationary and mobile field devices for real-time analytics and visualization. This white paper examines the game-changing role of IoT-enabled solutions in addressing critical worker safety challenges across commercial and industrial verticals and showcases the power of MIOTY, a new LPWAN solution that satisfies network requirements in diversified high-risk work settings to fuel massive, mission-critical data communication from the edge for real-time analytics & IoT intelligence.
