A sensor worn on a smart watch, or an identity badge worn by a worker on-site, can track valuable information. Tracking the wearer’s vital signs, for example, can warn them if they are at risk of heat exhaustion.
Similarly, a gas leak, though rare, can be very dangerous to workers in confined spaces. Hazardous gases can be both invisible and scentless, but a wearable sensor can detect other properties and sound an alert telling the workers to get to safety.
UGP also uses drones to make facility inspections faster and safer. Using a drone to inspect the top of a tower means a staff member does not have the safety risk of working at height, and it saves the site the cost and time involved in constructing scaffolding. Instead, an individual can remain on the ground and remotely pilot a drone up to the inspection point, where cameras can check that all is well.
