Skanska Poland is testing smart helmets to increase safety at its building sites. The helmet was developed in collaboration with Cybercom and Intel. And it is really smart - the helmet detects and gives warnings about all kinds of anomalies and hazards, such as vibrations, impact, falls or changes in temperature. Without a doubt, it is welcome news in an industry where the accident rate is still far too high. Fifty smart helmets are going to be tested at a building site in Warsaw. The initiative is the first of its kind in Europe.
Goal 8: Decent work and economic growth. The goal is aimed at inclusive and sustainable economic growth and full and productive employment with decent working conditions for everyone. Solutions like Skanska’s helmet make the work environment safer and more secure for construction workers.
