Innovation and safety at Bahia Oil&Gas Energy

In the event's Innovation Arena, the Bahian startup Trackfy will have a stand demonstrating a technological solution that speeds up the identification of accidents and accelerates evacuation in risk areas. Túlio Cerviño, co-founder and CEO of the company, will give a lecture presenting success stories in the use of technology to save lives. Data proves that it can reduce the evacuation time of an area affected by an incident by 30%. Furthermore, efficient response can generate savings of up to R$2 million, avoiding serious consequences of these occurrences.

The solution consists of a device attached to the helmets and badges of employees at industrial plants or construction sites. This device sends data and information to a cloud platform in real time. Using resources such as the Internet of Things (IoT), data analysis and algorithms, managers have an online analysis of the location and situation of workers in the workplace.

At the first sign of an accident or other event, decisions can be made immediately. The solution makes it possible to identify when workers are in risk areas or affected by accidents, enabling evacuation and any other necessary measures, such as relief, before the worst happens, explains Cerviño.

Impact and expansion of technology in the industry

“At Bahia Oil&Gas Energy, we will discuss cases that prove the improvement of safety and productivity in the oil and gas industry. In addition to the lecture, we will have a stand at the Innovation Arena, explaining our solution and detailing these cases,” highlights the CEO of Trackfy.

The startup already provides this innovation to large companies in manufacturing hubs, both in Bahia and São Paulo (Cubatão and Mauá). These corporations operate in the chemical, petrochemical, steel, mining and civil construction sectors.

Trackfy's CEO reiterates that the solution's exclusive purpose is the operational management of construction sites and plants. All principles of the General Data Protection Law (LGPD) and labor legislation are strictly respected. “Our solution is aligned with three of the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN 2030 Agenda,” highlights Cerviño.
