At the Solntsevsky coal mine, one of the key production assets of the Eastern Mining Company, they have begun testing a video surveillance system using chest-mounted video recorders. The innovation is intended to record violations of labour protection, fire and industrial safety.
The device looks like a small walkie-talkie and analyses the video stream in a constant mode. The camera is attached to the clothing of a specialist responsible for occupational safety at work. Thus, the employee moves around the production area without being distracted by a device that independently records violations.
All records are stored on the server with the ability to remotely monitor and view what is happening. Specialists of the labour protection and industrial safety service process and analyse information about the violations detected and provide feedback to the heads of departments. Further, appropriate disciplinary measures are applied against the offender.
This chest strap recorder is equipped with the powerful Ambarella Smart AVC processor, which delivers high quality Full HD video. This allows you to identify the offender. The cameras also have a wide viewing angle of 140°. The device can work without recharging for up to 22 hours at temperatures from –40° to + 60°, which allows the camera to function smoothly even in extreme weather conditions. Additionally, the chest video recorder is equipped with the GLONASS system, which records the geographic coordinates of the offender's location.
“The use of modern devices in our labour protection programmes has already allowed us to reduce the number of violations by several times. Chest cameras-video recorders will additionally strengthen the control system in order to ensure the safety of all production processes at the Solntsevsky coal mine,” commented Ilya Sterlikov, Director of Labor Protection and Industrial Safety of the All-Russian Mining Co.
