INCREASE SAFETY OF WORKERS AND EFFICIENCY OF OPERATIONS
Occupational safety is a key concern in industrial sectors, whether it is oil & gas, chemical, manufacturing or other sectors.
According to the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (OSHA), there were over 3500 deaths from work accidents in the EU in 2019. But digital technology contributes to better safety says OSHA’s survey of smart digital monitoring systems.
Location information is particularly useful. However, location systems based on GPS or radio frequency often have shortcomings:
- Lack of signal availability indoors or close to buildings (GPS)
- Lack of precision (GPS)
- Interferences (RF)
- Costly infrastructure and maintenance (RF).

OUR SOLUTION FOR INDUSTRIAL WORKER SAFETY
SYSNAV has developed a personal 3D positioning and location tracking module, SYSNAV PLD, that requires little infrastructure to function indoors and outdoors.
This device allows multiple use cases:
- Guarantee reliable and compliant travel on an industrial site
- Guarantee the localization and safety of lone workers
- Guarantee rapid on-site intervention in the event of an incident
- Efficiently locate points of interest
- Optimizing operational processes
Dosimetry mapping in nuclear power plants
SYSNAV provides an accurate real-time positioning solution during power station operations. The solution contributes to detailed dosimetry mapping with the aim of recording the worker’s trajectory to measure radiation exposure and adapt the trajectory to limit this exposure. The solution also makes it possible to speed up topographic measurements during maintenance shutdowns with a strong time constraint.
3D geolocation of operators in factories
SYSNAV’s personnel positioning solution was used in factories to record repeat trajectories of operators. The tracking data was then analyzed in order to rearrange the location of work stations and save time. As a result, workflows were streamlined and it improved operational efficiency.
