The Accenture Life Safety Solution, a wireless-enabled, multigas detection system that helps protect workers in potentially hazardous environments, has received the Industrial Hygiene Product of the Year Award from Occupational Health & Safety magazine.
Developed by Accenture, Industrial Scientific, Cisco, and AeroScout, the product integrates Wi-Fi and location-based technologies with multigas (hydrogen sulphide, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbon, and oxygen) detectors. It helps companies remotely monitor incidents and locate workers in hazardous locations. It is designed for chemical and manufacturing plants and other locations where dense steel infrastructure can make wireless safety systems difficult to implement.
The system continuously monitors the environment in the plant and automatically provides feedback on abnormalities to the control centers and to management.
