Cemex invests in health & safety app
17 May 2018

Cemex Ventures announced it invested in Prysmex, a Mexico-based start-up that offers an app to detect and helping to prevent workplace accidents through the Internet of Things and real-time data collection.

Prysmex’s innovative solution features a web-based platform with a collaborative management app that monitors the environmental and geolocation variables of unsafe acts and conditions on customised 3D maps, enabling real-time decision-making and increased industry safety and productivity.

Through the Internet of Things, Prysmex enables a comprehensive analysis of data such as impacts, light and noise levels, locations, temperatures and the presence of toxic gases. Placed on the workers’ helmets, Prysmex devices monitor and communicate in real time users’ conditions, alerting them to potential situations and high-risk areas. In addition, its web application provides an analytical report of workers’ and plant conditions, enabling better workplace decision-making and accident prevention at all times.

Cemex evaluated the solution, and after its successful trial period, installed the app at all its cement plants in Mexico.

Founded by chemical engineer Susana Ruiz and civil engineer Patricio de Villa in Monterrey, Mexico, Prysmex was the finalist of Cemex Ventures Startup Competition 2017 and is now part of the company's portfolio.
