Group Light Alloy Wheels
CMS produces high-quality wheel models that meet customer expectations by combining advanced engineering technology with 50 years of molding experience.
Having become the leading wheel manufacturer in Turkey and among the top 5 companies in Europe, CMS exports 85% of its production. Thanks to its continuous investment in human capital and technology, CMS has become a design partner of choice for automotive giants around the world.
The process of manufacturing light alloy wheels—which are produced through many challenging stages and quality controls—includes both human labour and machinery, and creates various occupational health and safety risks. As an organization of trust, CMS preferred Wipelot's Lone Worker Safety System in addition o its OHS measures.
The main purpose of the project is to transmit information such as the location, time and type of an alarm for CMS personnel to an alarm center and authorized persons in case of falls, immobility or emergency calls. In addition, it is planned to store alarm information in the system retrospectively, allowing remote access to instant or past records with Wipelot Lotus RTLS software.
The Wipelot Project Team has determined and covered the risky areas in the facility with a high-precision RTLS system. Personnel working in these dangerous areas are monitored with tags that use UWB technology, which enables real-time tracking of their locations. A kiosk alarm centre was established to manage location data and emergency types of personnel in case of a possible emergency, and instant and retrospective data management was implemented by integrating the whole system with Wipelot's central software.
If an employee is inactive for any reason, the tags first vibrate to eliminate false alarms. If inactivity continues despite the vibration, an alarm is transmitted to the kiosk alarm center and web software along with regional location information for the employee. The lone worker safety system also sends a warning to the nearest alarm display centre with location information for the employee in case he or she falls or makes an emergency call. This information is recorded by transmitting it to the central software.
Retrospective reporting, alarm and action record
The system's central software allows users to search for and inspect retrospective action and alarm logs. These records provide information such as the alarm type, the location of the employee when the alarm was received, and when and by whom such alarms were ended.
The Wipelot lone worker safety system enables first responders to reach an injured employee more quickly and provides a safer working environment for employees who are injured or in need of assistance in an isolated or dangerous area. This system also tracks, records, and reports work-related injuries that occur at remote locations, as well as recurring injuries that might be related to unsafe work procedures.
Expandable safety solutions
The tags and anchors used for the Lone Worker Safety System are also used for the Social Distancing Tracking System and Real Time Location System which are used to monitor the location and movement of employees who are working in high-risk environments. These systems can be used by employers to keep track of lone workers, reduce their risk exposure, and improve overall safety..
