Combining Personal Protection with Video Analytics

The safety of employees and the prevention of occupational hazards have remained a top priority for enterprises that not just work for business, but for combined community growth. It is evident, that prevention of occupational hazards in the workplace starts with the use of personal protective equipment(PPE). Hence, every organization must make sure that workers wear personal protective equipment properly to ensure their safety at work.

Countless studies reveal that injuries at work incur substantial indirect costs for companies, thus making it more so mandatory to make safety provisions for employees. Besides, the right to a safe working environment applies to workers across sectors. With the government coming forward to implement stronger standards to ensure employee safety, businesses have grown more vigilant in following the safety standards and adhering to occupational health and safety guidelines & regulations.

India, which was not manufacturing personal protective equipment (PPE) kits, achieved an almost unrealistic goal of producing 2.06 lakh PPE kits daily within two months after the coronavirus outbreak. In January 2020, there were only 2.75 lakh PPE kits (imported ones) available in the country. That has changed drastically. However, in most cases, it is practically impossible for managers to ensure all the staff members are wearing PPE property. Consequently, since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, many organizations have embraced video analytics to enhance their operational efficiency in the face of social distancing norms. Video analytics tools reduce your burden and responsibility and make surveillance much more accessible. The best part about PPE video analytics solutions is that you don’t have to manually track circumstances or recruit employees for constant monitoring and analysis. As for the industry, only time can tell how effectively it can be implemented.
