Augmented Reality Leader Light Guide Systems presents '' A Safe and Efficient Restart with Augmented Reality'' Initiative
WIXOM, Michigan, June 25, 2020 – Light Guide Systems, the leader in Industrial Augmented Reality (AR) software and systems, has announced a new initiative entitled “A Safe and Efficient Restart with Augmented Reality”. The initiative includes online resources and systems and solutions for customers with a focus on how best to manage to restart and maintain safe operations during the COVID-19 crisis.
Paul Ryznar is Founder and CEO of OPS Solutions, recently hosted a webinar to introduce the “Safe and Efficient Restart” initiative. Ryznar stated, “Our customers have benefited from deploying Light Guide Systems to drive productivity and quality; now they can add safety to the value propositions that our technology delivers.” The key themes included:
Retraining for the Restart: With the long shutdowns, companies will be faced with retention and recruitment challenges. AR has been proven to be highly effective in training employees in new processes or products, as well as remedial training for pre-existing work assignments.
Low-Density Operations: Consistent with the new Social Distancing norms we are practicing in the general public, the workplace will have to be reconfigured to allow for the recommended safe distances. AR can define and confirm these Safe Work Zones, as well as the proper guidance and confirmation that products are built efficiently and at high-quality levels.
New Disinfection Requirements: All companies will need to comply with new stringent regulations for providing a sterile workplace. AR can provide standardized work instructions to ensure compliance and confirmation that these sanitizing processes are performed correctly and completely every time.
New Requirements for PPE and Health Screening: AR can self-guide employees entering the workplace in a standardized Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Health Screening process, with auto-confirmation that all required PPE is adorned as well as Health Check screening for fever and other symptoms; a successful screening event can then be associated with the employee’s badge for safe entry into the workplace.
Proper PPE Kitting and Availability: If faced with a lack of proper PPE inventory levels and staging throughout the workplace, operations will be impacted if employees are unable to work without PPE. AR kitting systems can both guide and confirm that the appropriate PPE quantities are properly stocked in the right place and at the right time.
