Workplace Safety and Health

The field of workplace safety and health is evolving. With new changes in workplaces, workforce demographics and employee expectations, new solutions are also needed to enhance occupational safety and health.

We have curated a collection of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and the internet of things (IoT) that can help mitigate potential organisational risks. By adopting a mix of reactive to proactive and pre-emptive measures, businesses can create a conducive work environment that optimises productivity and their employees’ well-being.

AI Solution for Safety Management in High Risky Industry or Workspaces
High-risk industrial sectors, notably the chemical industry, frequently experience severe safety incidents during production. Traditional risk management approaches, heavily reliant on manual efforts, often suffer from inadequate supervision, incomplete coverage, and suboptimal control. Addressing these challenges, the tech provider offers an advanced solution combining artificial intelligence technologies such as computer vision, the Internet of Things (IoT), and big data analytics. By utilizing existing enterprise cameras and sophisticated algorithmic servers, it establishes a video-based intelligent analysis platform for hidden risk management. This platform enhances overall safety through comprehensive risk perception, proactive hazard identification, predictive warnings, and visual decision-making aids, aiming for widespread and intelligent safety management across high-risk industrial environments.
AI-Based Electrical Asset Monitoring and Data Platform
The proprietary solution is a data acquisition and analytics system that employs non-intrusive clip-on current transformers which are easily installed at electrical distribution boards. This enables AI algorithms to detect subtle changes and patterns in the electrical signature of each connected asset or device. Monitoring electrical assets has traditionally been complex and costly, requiring multiple sensors and expensive systems. This has led to widespread under-monitoring,  resulting in expensive maintenance and significant energy inefficiencies. The solution extracts a proprietary set of deep energy data from electrical devices, assets, and machines, and can be easily installed on both new and existing electrical assets or building infrastructure. It offers real-time monitoring and reporting on important metrics such as real-time power usage effectiveness (PUE) and enables automation of sustainability reporting. The technology offers an industry-changing solution: a non-intrusive cost efficient AI-powered monitoring system that is easy to install. It generates a proprietary data set that fuels machine learning algorithms, enhancing efficiency and reducing total cost of ownership for all connected assets. The technology owner is seeking test-bedding partnerships with real estate businesses, data centre companies or service providers, facility management businesses.
Fast-Curing and Ready-to-Use Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymer (GFRP)
Fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) is widely used for blast protection and structural reinforcement of concrete elements in buildings and infrastructure. However, conventional FRP solutions have limitations due to labour-intensive applications such as on-site preparation and resin mixing, inconsistent quality, long curing time, and low productivity. The technology is a glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP) roll pre-saturated with a tacky resin system that can be easily applied to structural elements like “double-sided tape”. The resin-infused GFRP can fully cure in natural light within a few hours, strengthening the structure with only a marginal increase in wall thickness. A fire-retarding version of GFRP is also available. The GFRP solution is fast and efficient with minimal on-site tools and less dependent on workmanship skills. The technology is available for IP licensing and collaboration with industrial partners who are interested in adopting the fast-curing GFRP technology in their products and applications.
Wireless Data Transmission via Ultrasound in Metallic/Explosive Environment
The technology offer presents a wireless data transmission via ultrasound system. The technology transforms any speaker or sound system into a tool for detection, geolocation, authentication and wireless communication. The system allows wireless data transmission in constrained environments where radio waves (e.g., Wi-Fi, cellular and Bluetooth) are not effective or not permitted, such as explosive, defense, electromagnetic-sensitive, metallic and high humidity environment.
Enhancing Construction Safety and Productivity with Video Analytics
Current methods of monitoring construction safety and productivity are tedious, costly and prone to human errors. Resulting in operations being non-compliant, dangerous and inefficient which leads to project delays, cost overruns and even reputational damage. This technology offers an enhanced safety and productivity tracking solution in the construction industry by leveraging on video analytics to detect safety hazards and high-risk scenarios as well as productivity insights. It provides actionable insights in the form of alerts, charts and reports to enable safety officers and project managers to make better-informed decisions for their operations.
