Italian safety equipment manufacturer Univet will introduce its VisionAR Smart Glasses, which integrate Sony's holographic waveguide technology into eye protection, allowing wearers to view real time data without looking away from what they’re doing.

The 2017 Red Dot Award goggles display data on a holographic screen behind the right protective lens. The screen is clear so the wearer can see through it, while data on computers, tablets and smartphones can be accessed via WiFi or bluetooth.

Paola Portesi, CEO of Univet, said that its VisionAR Smart Glasses aim to protect eye while processing large amounts of real time data, including in logistics and warehousing, manufacturing, rescue operations, medical or oil and gas.

“For example, a warehouse worker might view packing and shipping lists, a doctor the patient’s vital signs, a factory worker assembly instruction or a rescue officer text notification from partner units,” said Portesi. He said that the smart safety glasses will be on show at the Intersec.

More than 1,300 exhibitors from 58 countries are expected to take part in the Intersec 2018.

The government bodies have extended their support to the event to raise awareness of worker welfare in industrial work environments. The UAE Ministry of Labour, in cooperation with municipalities, carried out approximately 5,000 health and safety site inspections across the country in 2016, and will increase inspections to at least 10,000 construction work sites by 2019.

Redha Hassan Salman, director of the health and safety department at Dubai Municipality, said, “Intersec offers an important platform to connect with leading international and local experts, and plays a key role in providing the latest health and safety developments to Dubai and the region.”

Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Messe Frankfurt Middle East, Intersec’s organiser, added, “It not only ensures a safer and healthier workplace, but also produces immense benefits for society in terms of increased productivity levels, lesser demands on health systems and an overall positive sentiment in society as a whole.”

Other headline safety and health exhibitors at Intersec 2018 include Delta Plus, Derekduck, Honeywell, Master Lock, U Power, Midas Safety, Safety Jogger and Salama Safety & Security.
