System integrator join forces with Aria Edge

CJ OliveNetworks, one of the top system integrators in South Korea, announced on April 25 that it would take advantage of AI and AR technologies to help its customers enhance industrial security.

The Seoul-based company said that its three solutions are geared toward letting corporations prevent accidents.

Toward that end, CJ OliveNetworks joined hands with AR company Aria Edge. Under the partnership, they had developed an AR safety inspection system, AR remote control solution, and a smart mirror.

The firm said that the three advanced solutions would enable workers to ensure their safety and increase efficiency based on cutting-edge technologies.

“Our solutions are aimed at preventing accidents and securing the safety of workers at the same time through new technologies like AI and AR,” a CJ OliveNetworks official said.

“By raising productivity and improving the working environment, the three solutions would also contribute to the ESG management.”

Short for Environmental, Social, and corporate Governance, ESG is the three central factors in measuring the sustainability of a corporation or business.

More and more companies pay attention to ESG, especially in the working environment, after the Serious Accidents Punishment Act went into effect this year.

The new act is designed to prevent serious workplace accidents and man-made disasters.

The act requires corporations and government organizations to adopt health and safety management systems to prevent such accidents.

In case they fail to do so, and serious accidents take place, companies and their senior officers would be subject to heavy criminal and administrative liability.

This makes corporations and chief executives scramble.
