Samsung C&T Utilizes IoT to Improve Safety Measures on Construction Sites

Our cities are reaching skyward with increasingly ambitious construction projects. And ensuring safety of the workers is the primary concern. Construction and engineering company Samsung C&T is pioneering a new era of safety. It has come up with innovative use of Internet of Things (IoT) technology at the construction sites.

Every project brings its own set of challenges in constructions. Samsung C&T’s Engineering and Construction (E&C) Group has established a robust Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS). It is learned that the new system is built on a foundation of continuous improvement and assures proactive planning as well as real-time response to potential hazards.

The system uses IoT technology. It is true that IoT is currently revolutionizing safety management. It provides instant access to data on environmental conditions. This paves the path for workers well-being.

Just imagine that the construction workers are equipped with heart rate monitor bands as we witness during athletes training sessions. The bands are linked to a central monitoring system and enables immediate alerts sent to managers if heart rate of a worker exceeds safe levels. The system therefore will allow swift intervention of medical emergencies.

Gas sensor is another integral component of Samsung C&T’s IoT arsenal. It serves as silent guardians against suffocation and fire hazards. It is equipped with smartphone connectivity to provide real-time alerts to workers and ultimately prevent potential disasters ahead of time.

Temperature and humidity sensors optimize the curing process and enhance structural integrity. Remotely monitoring and adjusting temperature levels with it ensures efficient production of high-quality concrete as well as reduce the risk of structural failures.

Air quality sensors monitor particulate matter levels to safeguard against poor air quality. Samsung C&T is committed to environmental stewardship and community well-being.
