Ensuring Workers’ safety by dust monitoring in the Red Sea Airport - Case study
The coast of Saudi Arabia in the Red Sea is prone to frequent sandstorms. The Red Sea Development Company’s authorities wanted to calculate the dust and weather conditions of the islands. In order to optimise the working conditions of their employees, it was crucial for the authorities to get real-time monitoring of PM2.5, PM10, PM100, temperature, humidity, and UV light intensity. They did not have a notifying mechanism that could alert the authorities if and when a sandstorm generates or enters the construction site. It was also crucial that such a Dust Monitoring System be self-reliant on energy, as the energy generated in the plants is utilised for powering other projects in the area.
Oizom with Saudi Envirozone offered 4 units of Dustroid with anemometers to the Red Sea Development Company for monitoring the various dust parameter levels, humidity, temperature and light intensity. Dustroid is capable of reading the parameter levels of PM2.5, PM10, PM100, temperature, humidity, UV light, and intensity of light on a real-time basis. The anemometer can detect and store the ultrasonic wind speed and wind direction data. It is also capable of running independently on solar power. Oizom’s Data Visualization & analytics software, Envizom, can analyse data, create historical trend reports and show a comprehensive report on such dust levels. Through the Alerts module, it can also enable notifying the authorities via SMS or email in case of any potential threat of sandstorms, high levels of dust, UV rays or light intensity.
Using Oizom’s smart, accurate and robust dust monitoring system powered by solar panels, the authorities of the Red Sea Development Company are empowered to monitor the dust levels. Oizom’s Envizom has enabled the authorities to get a detailed view of the historical trends of dust, data analysis on the dust and air quality levels, wind speed, wind direction, temperature and humidity levels of the construction site. Dustroid has further empowered the authorities to be notified of high levels of dust so as to prepare ahead in case of a sandstorm by activating their Alerts module (SMS & email) of the same. This has helped them make appropriate decisions to improve the safety standards of the workers.
