Health and safety monitoring

Protect staff and customers from danger, including violence, abuse or assault. You can also better equip lone workers to complete a task safely alone or ensure staff are compliant with health and safety precautions.

Solutions available

  • Health & safety monitoring

    usecase image

    Use sensors and cameras with AI machine learning to track and monitor users' health, safety and wellbeing. For example, you could use cameras monitoring the underground that could recognise when a person falls onto the tracks. The computer would then immediately turn off the electricity to the tracks and automatically alert staff and emergency services. Or you could use sensors to monitor a lone workers vital signs, which could automatically alert authorities in the event of a fall etc.

  • Computer vision

    usecase image

    Use AI and video analytics to monitor people and things – alerting any changes in behaviour that may indicate danger. For example, you could have a live CCTV feed from a bus, with AI monitoring for signs of violence or assault and when it sees this, it could automatically alert the emergency services to respond or trigger another safety response.


These solutions can use the following technologies:

5G eMBBEnhanced mobile broadband

5G enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) could be used. This can speed up the collection and processing of high volumes of data to aid decision making or video rendering in UHD/8K/4K for entertainment or security (video capture) use cases. It also enables businesses to have the speed required to set things up quickly and change them as required. This is currently available on our 5G network today.

5G would enhance this in the future with new capabilities such as

5G uRLLCUltra reliable low latency comms

Ultra reliable low latency comms (uRLLC) is a future 5G capability that would enable near real-time response rates for critical responses, such as a machine shutting down when spotting a hazard. It will also offer a smoother, synced up to real-time user experience for VR, AR and other entertainment use cases. This 5G capability is expected to be live on our network in 2023.

5G mMTCMassive machine type communications

Massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC) is a future 5G capability that could be used to collect and process data from multiple points on a massive scale, with thousands of devices and sensors able to connect to a single cell, allowing larger scale operations. This 5G capability is expected be live on our network in 2023.
