Enabling Smart Safety Equipment with the IIoT

Health, Safety, Security & Environment, EMEA, Technology, Supplier News
A partnership between industrial wearables company ProGlove and safety solutions provider Ansell will harness the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to ensure personal protective equipment (PPE) compliance.

 

The initiative will make digital tools for PPE selection to potentially millions of employees.

 

Announcing the partnership, Neil Salmon, President of Industrial Business for Ansell, said:

"Wearing an improper glove for work applications can expose workers to unsafe conditions, which can lead to injury and prevents workers from effectively performing their job throughout the day.

 

"ProGlove’s IIoT wearables are a natural extension of the workers’ tools, giving them a decisive edge by strengthening their role in the digitised industry 4.0. This creates immediate value for user organisations and leads to greater efficiency, flexibility and quality. This partnership will allow for the creation of innovative protection solutions, offering real-time data collection capabilities for precise and immediate information enabling compliance safety recommendations."

 

Andreas Koenig, ProGlove CEO, added:

"This partnership is another example of how we apply a human centric approach when it comes to advancing Industry 4.0 and the industrial Internet of Things.

 

"Connecting the worker to the IIoT is our primary concern, and this certainly includes workers safety. Through this partnership with Ansell we will be able to leverage our expertise and aim at providing the industry first 'cloudification' of workers safety."
