Driving a safe workforce

The automotive industry has always been one of the largest employers globally. From OEMs and part-suppliers to factories and assembly lines to repair and maintenance crew, it continues to support the livelihood of millions. The complex ecosystem of a large workforce requires automakers to proactively monitor their employees’ safety to ensure continuous and risk-free operations and defer huge costs in terms of liabilities and lost productivity. At Tata Communications, we are cognisant of this pertinent need, and that’s why we’ve developed an end-to-end ‘Safety as a Solution’ ushering in a digital revolution to monitor employee health and safety by combining wearables with the Internet of Things (IoT), analytics, and artificial intelligence (AI) to create technology solutions that saves lives.

Solution & Benefits
Automotive businesses frequently report worker injuries and illnesses at the workplace due to high exposure to health hazards and risks that go unchecked. Most automotive businesses are busy and bustling with heavy machinery and equipment that pose a range of safety threats to the workforce and worksite. At Tata Communications, we’ve empowered our Employee Health and Safety solution with the Internet of Things (IoT), analytics, and artificial intelligence (AI) to save lives in varied use-cases.We monitor your employees’ vitals and work environment through our customised wearable devices that allow two-way communication between the employees and safety supervisors. Additionally, it offers more features, such as automated attendance, location tracking, and geo-fencing. Our end-to-end approach is designed to help you implement a zero-incident safety policy while preventing capital loss in terms of liabilities and lost productivity.

Primary benefits delivered by our worker safety solution are as follows:

  • Enhanced Worker Safety

    Enables your workforce to avoid potential hazards by empowering them with advance warning features such as audio alerts and SoS call.
  • Improved Worker Productivity

    Improve productivity by motivating your workforce and reducing health compromises with improved working standards and safety practices.
  • Quicker Emergency Response

    Enhances the monitoring of safety conditions by enabling employees to trigger immediate SOS alerts for prompt action.

Use Cases
A workforce exposed to health hazards could translate into various consequences, from hindering their family’s welfare to inflicting severe damage to your business and brand reputation. The Employee Health and Safety solution monitors a worker’s body vital stats and work environment with our customised wearable devices. This feature rich-device is capable of two-way alerts between the employees and supervisors, automated attendance, location tracking, and geo-fencing. Strategically placed beacons in automotive manufacturing facilities gather and seamlessly transmit data from the devices via the LPWAN network to the device management platform to create actionable insights. No matter what your organisation’s safety parameters are, we will build a scalable solution that’s tailored for your use-case, the size of your workforce, and the layout of your facilities. Our implementation will be seamless and simple.

Workers in elevated positions

A high-risk automotive worker such as a crane operator has a fever or an anomalous heartbeat (too low or high), the system sends an automated alert to his supervisor that this particular worker has a health issue which needs to be investigated.

Workers in isolated locations

A worker feels uneasy during the course of his work. An alert is sent to the worker’s supervisor – if he presses the SoS button in case he trips and falls (fall detection) or has an accident and faints (immobility trigger). In normal operation, every 10 minutes, the device sends the data on heart rate, body skin temperature, and the last known proximity.

Check on unauthorised access

A particular area in the plant is restricted access, and hence, a BLE beacon is placed there. If an unauthorised worker enters that area, an alert is sent to the supervisor.
