  • (1888PressRelease) July 21, 2020 - MOSCOW, RUSSIA - Smart Hardhats, software-based personal protective equipment developed by Softline, are now in use in energy companies and other industrial enterprises of Altai Territory. With these smart industrial safety control systems, companies can adopt a zero-harm culture.

    Softline and its partners offered a branded solution called the Smart Hardhat: an upgraded version of the traditional safety hat powered by proprietary software and hardware. The system is equipped with a GPS tracking module that can monitor if employees are wearing the hardhat, send an emergency signal if a worker falls down or gets hit, and warn about trespassing into dangerous “red zones.” The software tracks the location of employees both inside and outside and registers when they leave the work area. All collected data are further analyzed to determine how much time employees spent actually working during a given period. A temperature monitoring function helps an operator make a correct emergency assessment and, if necessary, promptly organize rescue operations.

    Next-generation hardhats operate in a temperature range from -35°С to +60°С. In case of accident investigations, the upgraded hardhat provides full traceability and helps the enterprise to create a detailed report for federal supervision agencies. It can prove that an employee was wearing a hardhat during the accident. For the enterprises of Altai Territory, the adoption of Smart Hardhats is an important step on the journey to zero harm.

    In accordance with the agreement, Softline will continue to launch projects facilitating the region’s digital transformation. Together with its partners, Softline plans to digitize municipal services and production, ensure continuous transport infrastructure management, and offer advanced training for IT specialists working in governmental institutions. Today, we are laying the groundwork for a regional digital technology transfer center. The new organization will help SMBs find solutions to a wide range of issues related to the implementation of IT solutions.

    “Softline has rich experience in the implementation of digital transformation projects. We use both vendor and proprietary solutions to fully satisfy the needs of our customers, be it state authorities or commercial companies. Our goal is long-term, mutually beneficial cooperation with the state and local enterprises of Altai Territory as part of our current agreement,”—said Nikita Khramov, Head of Project and Hardware Solution Sales in Siberian and Far East Federal Districts, Department for Business Development in Russian Regions.

    “As a Softline partner, we help run pilot projects, including the implementation of Smart Hardhats in the enterprises of Altai Territory. This is an important step on the journey to zero harm, as modern businesses have an acute need for high-tech solutions that not only respond to industrial accidents, but also prevent them,”—said Sergei Prib, CEO of Altaikraienergo.
