It's important to note that power outages can affect all types of industries and bring operations to a screeching halt, contributing to a loss in productivity, revenue and material. Some electrical failures can even increase the risks of workers facing serious or life-threatening injuries.
Manufacturers are adopting tech like artificial intelligence (AI) to automate some basic tasks and allow human employees to focus on bigger, more important jobs. New technological breakthroughs for power plants come when there’s a need to focus on sustainability to protect the environment and avoid using up natural resources. Now, wireless technology may play a pivotal role in power plants. Here’s how it will likely improve power plant operations.
Commercial buildings, including office spaces are responsible for over 40% operating expenses borne by the business. It is estimated that office and residential buildings will contribute to 8% of the total global energy by the year 2050. It is also estimated that commercial buildings all over the world alone will release 3,800 megatons of carbon by 2050.
Manufacturing employees often work near significant hazards, like heavy equipment, potentially dangerous chemicals and electricity. Safety has come a long way over the past few decades, but businesses can always do more to protect their workers.
Industry 4.0 revolutionized the way manufacturers design, create, and distribute their products. Its focus was on efficiency and productivity using the industrial internet of things (IIOT), machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, and automation. However, in early 2021 the European Commission released a report introducing Industry 5.0, focusing on the wellbeing of the worker within the production process.
Safety is the number one priority for any manufacturing company and, as such, your equipment should be safe to use and produce a high-quality product. But even if you're already keeping an eye on the condition of your manufacturing equipment, that might not be enough to keep your workers safe.
Many organizations are now actively working to improve community relations and prove to their neighbors, vendors, and customers that they are striving to be environmentally sensitive and promote sustainability. Reducing water consumption is one way they are accomplishing this.
