Augmenting workplace safety with augmented reality (AR)

Augmenting workplace safety with augmented reality (AR)

A robust safety-oriented approach is key to minimizing work-related hazards. Often, these security specifications are tedious and time-consuming, sometimes reduce productivity and are often overlooked. 

The development of augmented reality (AR) is a major advance, expanding human interaction and enabling humans and machines to function better to create safer workplaces. Many sectors are leveraging the capabilities of AR to build organizational resilience by promoting a safer workplace. 

Build technology connections for workers by creating a collaborative blend of virtual and real worlds to paint scenarios that empower workers and help build better safety practices.

How does AR improve workplace and employee safety? 

Any industrial or manufacturing plant has complex and heavy machinery that can be dangerous if not handled properly. Augmented reality (AR) in manufacturing facilitates efficient and safe interactions between humans and machines.

• Factory Repair and Maintenance 

Plant maintenance engineers can use AR to assist maintenance procedures on complex and heavy machinery, allowing the use of AR glasses to identify hazards. Additionally, information across the network can be consolidated and accessed through augmented reality headsets and real-time alerts.

This can forewarn them of potential danger, forewarning is to be prepared, canPositive impact on workplace safety

• Underground security

With AR technology, workers can also be alerted to the level of safety. These measures ensure that workers do not need to rely on external aids such as radios for instructions, and can be more focused and informed without distractions.

• Augmented reality in buildings 

Workers in the construction industry are prone to risks and hazards such as falls from heights, electrical hazards, flooding, being trapped in debris, and many other site-related accidents. Additionally, they can work in a variety of scenarios involving transporting, installing and dismantling heavy infrastructure.

Using AR, hazardous areas can be marked in the field. Additionally, AR glasses can call up data sheets for specific hazards and warm workers. AR can also provide actual measurements of the physical space to ensure proper alignment and placement.

AR headsets are hands-free communication devices that instantly keep teams connected and issue critical information and security alerts.

• Safety training

AR VR in Safety TrainingAn enhanced, interactive, realistic visual approach is created that is better understood and retained. It is a valuable resource, especially in high-risk industries. Students can immerse themselves in real-life hazardous scenarios and receive guidance on solutions. 

In heavy machinery repair, simulations can be created so students can repair products without touching the real product. 

Likewise, infinite simulations can be created for each industry where workers can safely practice, learn and master techniques. Again, this provides workers with the resources to effectively identify and manage emergencies.

• 3D Operation Manual 

The 3D instruction manual provides the crew with real-time data and corrective actions and helps prevent any failures. AR-enabled operating manuals enable workers and technicians to view machines and their components, procedures, and risks in real-time.

• Expert remote assistance 

Technicians can seek support with remote assistance, and experienced workers can be guided with the help of an AR interactive interface, saving time and costs by requiring in-person presence to resolve machine issues.

AR - Smart Investment 

Incorporating AR into creating a safer workplace is a smart investment that will deliver an excellent ROI by minimizing risk, improving worker safety, reducing associated costs, and increasing productivity in the process.
