Salop Design and Engineering, a UK manufacturer of metal pressings and assemblies for the automotive, domestic appliance and construction industries has deployed the Avigilon high-definition surveillance system to ensure health and safety compliance and protect its investment in equipment and materials.
“We rely on the Avigilon system to ensure that everyone is working safely. This is critical in our business which is heavily regulated from a health and safety point of view,” said Christopher Greenough, director of production at Salop Design and Engineering. “Since deploying the Avigilon high-definition surveillance system, we’ve also improved stock control by 100 percent and cut the cost of covering stolen or damaged materials.”
Salop Design and Engineering can effectively ensure health and safety compliance and use footage as a training tool to ensure employees follow industry procedures to prevent future accidents. In addition, users can successfully investigate incidents within minutes of occurring to better protect valuable materials stored on site and reduce the risk of theft, damage, or health and safety violations. The company can monitor productivity of high-capacity machines to meet target run rates and quickly and accurately determine cause of production delays to offset potential losses.
“With heavy equipment running at high-capacity to meet growing customer demand, Salop Design and Engineering required a cost-effective surveillance solution to monitor activity across its 80,000 square foot facility,” said Bryan Schmode, executive vice president of global sales at Avigilon. “The Avigilon high-definition surveillance system delivers the superior image quality, intuitive management software, and robustness Salop Design and Engineering needs to ensure health and safety compliance, and better protect valuable metal materials stored on onsite.”
Users manage the surveillance system from their desktops using Avigilon Control Center (ACC) with High-Definition Stream Management (HDSM.) The company installed Avigilon HD cameras ranging from 2 MP to 5 MP to monitor the exterior and interior of the plant and installed an Avigilon Network Video Recorder (NVR) to store up to 12 days of continuous surveillance footage. An Avigilon HD 5 MP camera monitors the main entrance and 100,000 square foot parking area to capture the license plates of vehicles entering the site, while several Avigilon HD 2 MP cameras are permanently fixed on high-capacity machines to ensure target production rates. The directors also leverage ACC Mobile to monitor the system remotely from their iPhones.
