Abstract: Accidents in the workplace are a major problem, with potentially devastating consequences for workers and employers alike. Despite of clear safety regulations and procedures enforced by the authorities, risk management remains a huge challenge for employers in many industries. The proposed embedded system is expected to potentially reduce the chances of accidents happening in factories. The system consists of three modules: Worker module, Power tool module and Server module. The Worker module restricts access to dangerous power tools for workers without wearing proper gears. The glove with the worker unit will act as a security measure in such a way that each tool will have restricted access, according to the level of expertise of the worker. All of which is controlled by a Web Server unit which gives command to the Power tool unit.
