The aim is to develop an online platform that provides chemical hazard and risk control services especially tailored to poisoning-prone SMEs involved in the electronics industry, thereby encouraging SMEs to adopt the platform and ensure intelligent management of chemical hazards on work sites.
Usability: The platform was specifically designed to ensure SME workers’ safety and health against common poisoning accidents.
- An enhanced feature for hazard level alarms at high-risk work sites
- Time-weighted averages and short-term elevations in concentration (STEL, C) at certain hours when exposure to the given chemicals tends to peak
Interoperability and compatibility: The platform was developed using a standard communications protocol, and given data output systems (for both the KOSHA and SMEs) optimized for safety and health management.
- For KOSHA: The system displays the locations of all work sites with the remote sensors installed, chemical concentrations, and alarms.
- For SMEs: The system displays the locations of the remote sensors installed, chemical concentrations, and whether the sensors are in operation.
Enhancing the accessibility and usability of remote sensors
Additional remote sensors were developed and distributed to help prevent fatal accidents involving poisoning, asphyxiation, etc.
- The PCB circuit was standardized to accommodate multiple different types of sensors.
- A prototype was created and applied to pilot operation projects.
Manual: A standard manual was developed providing a guide on how the remote and around-the-clock monitoring system is to be used.
- A standard template for the on-site installation and application of remote sensors
- A guideline on how to indicate consent to the use of data collected about the work sites
Certification: The sensors will be certified so that SMEs can install and use them with reassurance.
- The remote sensors will be certified in the descending order of on-site priority (radio frequency certification, KC certification, and security certification).
