Construction site : protection of isolated workers

Real-time geolocation / geofencing of isolated workers on site, visualization and alert notifications to respect social distancing.

Omniscient, incubated by Bouygues Construction, allows site teams to secure and optimize sites in real time from the platform and the application.

Thanks to connected chips installed on the helmets of the worksite teams and an indoor localization solution in a Mesh network which makes it possible to protect isolated workers continuously. The project is currently being deployed on a construction site in Singapore, the 51-story Glory Tower.

Interested by Kuzzle solutions?

Kuzzle Mobile is an easy-to-deploy and cost-effective solution which allows logistics companies and operators to have complete control of the data with only on platform, and managing sensors and devices with a very low Total Cost of Ownership.

Real-time view of site resources

The deployed solution is able to measure the workforce required to complete a phase, identify logistical bottlenecks or wasted time (up to 20%) related to movement between floors. The data from connected helmets provides information that was previously lacking to improve production processes, site management and more generally the control and management of safety on the construction site (geofencing and real-time notification on entry). / exit from prohibited area).

Prevention through indoor geolocation technologies

Omniscient provides on-site teams with anonymised key data on the number of visitors for on-site area, accessible in real-time from the platform and the app thanks to connected chips installed on the badges taken in the morning by operator. These chips communicate wirelessly at 2.4 GHz with a network of connected, stand-alone removable tags installed in the ceiling of each zone, providing a real-time view of traffic and traffic flow. The badges have an autonomy of around 12 months.

Preventive mode

Display of results in real-time at the entry of each zone on a tablet as a preventive measure. 


Reactive mode

If the threshold is exceeded for fifteen minutes, a supervisor is notified by e-mail or text and can intervene.

Analysis mode

The site management and the health and safety team can find the attendance history on a dashboard

Physical distancing alertes

The solution was quickly updated by integrating an alert system for physical distancing. When the maximum number of workers carrying the device are in a defined area, an alert is sent to the managers so that they can reorganize the teams.

Nicolas Lemaire and Antonio Caselles, who emerged from Bouygues Construction’s intrapreneurship program, have developed a service solution based on asset management for the construction industry. Built around an application, the solution connects IoT sensors of various technologies in order to restore geolocation, inventory and monitored resources alerts. Beyond that, the data collected allows the implementation of a range of productivity indicators. As a genuine management tool, Omniscient provides its services to building sites, public works, equipment fleet management and site logistics.
