Smart & innovative technologies for workers’ protection - Tecnologie intelligenti & innovative per la tutela dei lavoratori
Intelligent & innovative Technologies can participate in the management and improvement of the safety and health of workers. In workplaces, virtual reality (VR), smart personal protective equipment (PPE), sensors on smartphones or wearables sensors are increasingly used where the risks are greatest due to the complexity of the working environments.
VR simulations reproduce risky activities without real risks. The aim is to "train emotionally", guide towards behaviors useful for reducing risks and stimulating learning. It is possible to generate prediction, classification, monitoring and decision-making models useful in all phases of security management.
The increase in PPE functions has focused on improving the integration of emerging technologies. Developments include advanced communication, sensors for constant monitoring of working and environmental conditions, and the ability to interface and control machinery based on location and specific permissions.
Smartphones are ubiquitous and equipped with sensors integrated with MEMS technology. The microphone is one of these and can be used by Apps for the general analysis of acoustic signals and for the specific measurement of noise, making the smartphone similar to a professional tool.
