Mining in the Age of the Internet of Things

As one of the oldest and most heavily regulated trades in the world, mining faces challenges that are shared across many industries yet uniquely complex due to harsh, changing environments. While the cost of doing business rises due to volatile commodity prices and a shrinking talent pool, decision makers must maintain an urgent focus on safety, efficiency and social responsibility. Mining is well-positioned to leverage emerging technologies in the Internet of Things (IoT) to meet these competing demands.

Mine operators can take advantage of IoT data through RFIDs, Radio over IP, and video for greater safety and efficiency. 

Is LED right for your facility? (Infographic)

By now, you’ve probably heard of some of the benefits of LED lighting. LEDs last longer than other bulbs, reducing maintenance and costs, and can increase productivity. LEDs are also intelligent and hold potential to unlock further savings through the Internet of Things. But is LED lighting really right for your facility? Whether you work in retail, commercial or industrial sectors, answering that question is easier than ever.

Lighting the Way to Mine Safety

For the mining industry, safety and lighting go hand in hand. Navigating harsh and hazardous conditions requires a well-lit work area. Slip and fall accidents are the second-leading cause of non-fatal mining-related injuries according to a report by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).

4 Big Benefits Lighting Brings to the Oil and Gas Industry

When working in harsh and hazardous areas, ensuring worker safety requires constant attention. In refineries, chemical plants, and production areas, operating conditions are a constant challenge. Changing a single lamp can be expensive and possibly even dangerous. Safe, efficient and cost-effective lighting is paramount in these environments.
