Founded by chemical engineer Susana Ruiz and civil engineer Patricio de Villa, Prysmex offers a solution capable of detecting and helping to prevent workplace accidents through the Internet of Things and real-time data collection. Its solution features a web platform with a collaborative management app that monitors the environmental and geolocation variables of unsafe acts and conditions on customized 3D maps, enabling real-time decision-making and increased industry safety and productivity.
Through the Internet of Things, Prysmex enables a comprehensive analysis of data such as impacts, light and noise levels, locations, temperatures, and the presence of toxic gases, among others. Placed on the workers’ helmets, the company’s devices monitor and communicate in real time users’ conditions, alerting them to potential situations and high-risk areas.
In addition, the web application provides an analytical report of workers’ and plant conditions, enabling improved workplace decision-making and accident prevention at all times.
