Managing Safety in Industrial Manufacturing with AR

Introduction

Ensuring safety and reducing the risk of accidents in industrial settings is a crucial concern for companies and organizations in the manufacturing, construction, and other heavy industries. These industries often involve complex and potentially hazardous operations, and the risk of accidents and injuries is always present. Accidents and injuries can not only have serious consequences for individuals, but they can also impact productivity and profitability for businesses. 

The solution? VIEWAR!

It is essential to implement effective strategies and measures to enhance safety and reduce the risk of accidents in industrial settings. Augmented reality (AR) has the potential to tackle that by providing workers with real-time information and guidance. In this blog post we want to highlight some of the main features how augmented reality can improve the safety of your workforce

Provide digital step-by-step instructions

Making mistakes can be a safety issue by itself. One way that VIEWAR can enhance safety in industrial settings is by providing workers with visual instructions and alerts. For example, AR can be used to display step-by-step instructions on the factory floor, helping workers to follow procedures more accurately and safely. Improve the communication of information by adding valuable digital notes and dynamic checklists to your digital work instructions to increase safety and reduce the risks of potential mistakes.

Merge and visualize IoT-data 

Another way that VIEWAR can enhance safety is by providing workers with real-time information on the status of safety systems. When there is too much data available, and your workforce cannot see the necessary data at the right place and time, it might become a safety issue. AR can be used to display data on the performance of safety equipment, such as personal protective equipment or emergency shutdown systems in a way that makes it easier to understand. This can help workers to identify and address potential problems before they become serious issues. AR can also be used to highlight potential hazards or danger zones, alerting workers to take extra caution in these areas.

Improve quality of training and onboarding

Mistakes can hardly be made if the training and onboarding was done properly. An essential factor in increasing the safety of a company and its employees is therefore training. This should include the precautions to ensure safety in companies and address possible risks. In this way, the workforce can react in time to avoid potential damage. With the help of augmented reality, this challenge can also be solved easily! With a mix of digital workflows and remote assistance, the employee can learn from the digital recordings of SOP and call in an expert when needed – even if the expert is not available in the company at the time.
