System allows automatic mask monitoring with the help of video analytics and monitoring of the safe distance between employees.

Zyfra, Finnish-Russian digital solutions provider for heavy industries, has announced today that it develops a comprehensive product to significantly reduce the risk of spread of COVID-19 at the industrial and other facilities.

System, based on artificial intelligence and computer vision, allows automatic mask monitoring with the help of video analytics, monitoring of the safe distance between employees and real-time reports about violations. Additional functions like measuring body temperature and alerting employees about a violation of a safe distance are also available.

‘A lot of clients have become concerned about occupational safety. They have started paying attention to solutions that used to be second or even third priorities for digitalization – those related to staff positioning and supervision over what the staff is doing at any specified moment,’ said Liana Meliksetyan, Chief Operating Officer at Zyfra.

According to her, companies understand that to start working after the lockdown it is necessary to ensure that people contact each other minimally.

“Various industrial safety solutions offered by Zyfra have already been installed in more than 50 companies in Russia and abroad. Nowadays digital solutions allow supervising health status of workers and compliance with occupational safety rules, including those considering protective clothing and equipment. As a result, we can see that the number of industrial accidents has decreased significantly, so has the amount of repeated violations of work discipline. Staff positioning at a mining company allows prompt responding to incidents – in emergency, it can save human lives,” added Alexander Belugin, Head of Computer Vision at Zyfra.

Zyfra started its operations in September 2017 in Helsinki, Finland. The company develops industrial digitalization technologies for machinery, metallurgy, mining and oil & gas. The solutions include predictive analytics and data analysis, tech processes optimization, automatic dispatch systems, autonomous dump trucks and teleoperated equipment.
