A new research is in progress where researchers are working on 3D scanning application usage for safety of people working on different oil rigs. Working in these places is quite risky and dangers seem to be always round the corner ready to show up.
Body weight is a primary factor where safety and precaution is concerned. Way back in nineteen eighties the workers were measured for their body weight and in between that time no research took place. But now researchers seemed to have found a solution where they are assuming that workers can be provided with absolute safety.
With 3D scanning technology body weight measurements are taken of different workers. The data which gets collected can be quite useful towards the development of new strategies and procedures aimed towards workers safety. The research is led by some of the well known researchers from different parts of the world. The research has already gathered huge amount of fund from different companies engaged in gas and oil operations.
When studies are conducted on the data which is accumulated, it will become a lot easier to come up with ways that can ensure proper safety of oil platform workers. It always helps companies with safety measures when they are aware of body weight of their workers. Accidents that happen quite frequently can be easily averted by using appropriate protective gear. When proper data is available, it gets easier for companies to maintain proper safety in the workplace.
