As a world’s largest manufacturer and distributor of sewing thread and supplies, Coats is paying the highest priority to its employees health and safety by adopting the latest technologies in the industry. With the focus on digital transformation, Coats has a large team working globally to rapidly implement the cutting edge technologies into its on-premises by working with industry leading technology companies
Globally distributed 20+ facilities to be deployed
No standard in CCTV network infrastructures of the facilities
Wide variety of CCTV devices to be integrated
Low network bandwidth in most facilities
Lack of dedicated IT professionals in remote on-premises
Strict deadlines to make the system ready for use of EHS teams
A technical project team is built consisting of
1 Global IT Project Manager – Coats
2 Network Architects – Coats
1 Integrations Manager – Intenseye
The technical project team was responsible for
Planning the requirements and action items
Prioritizing the sites according to their readiness on the pre-requirements
Organizing the integration calls and training the sites
Integrating the cameras with the collaboration of the site teams
In less than 8 weeks, the project team was able to;
Standardize the CCTV network infrastructure in all sites
Increase the bandwidth of needful sites
Renew the CCTV systems of the sites that have no compatible device
Deploy and integrate 20+ facilities
“At the beginning of the project, we had no active maintenance on the CCTV networks of our on-premises since they are robust systems and were up and running for long periods of time within their isolated VLANs. We did not even have the idea of the CCTV footage can be streamed out simply by using the existing device features. However, with the help of Intenseye we turn our CCTV systems into the extra eyes and assistants of our EHS professionals within a very short period of time. With this project, we are able to use our already existing CCTV equipment not only for physical security surveillance but also to improve our EHS culture and provide safer, risk-free environments to our employees even without any hardware investment. This was the fastest global deployment in our digital transformation journey ever and with the well-established procedures, it only takes hours to integrate our devices into Intenseye and make the system ready for the EHS teams’ use.”

We are utilizing Intenseye to take our safety measures at production sites to the next level. We were impressed by Intenseye’s ability to identify wide ranges of workers’ behaviors. And we also value highly its user-friendly dashboard where we configure and check our particular unsafe behaviors. Intenseye team’s collaborative support for putting new detection models in place is also notable. This is something that was proving very difficult to do manually for us. It has been a game changer for us, and we cannot recommend it enough.

We value their cutting-edge technology, reliability, and easy-to-use platform during our journey to zero incidents. Together, we aim to create a nationwide awareness of workplace health and safety.
Faruk SarıbuğaEHS Supervisor, Arçelik Group
When we started the project with Intenseye, initially we have set the existing use cases and got great value from the platform by being able to see the hazards, unsafe acts & conditions, and our compliance rate per facility, area, and even per shift. After that, we have thought about how to use Intenseye’s technology with our existing manufacturing processes. With the involvement of relevant parties and Intenseye team, we were able to shut down the process line automatically when there is an unsafe act and unauthorized entry detected. That added great value to our health and safety management on-site and using the cutting-edge technology for our employees’ safety was also recognized by the Arcelik management and all our employees. We see Intenseye as a great partner to manage health and safety in our facilities and we believe that we will be coming up with many outstanding solutions with the Intenseye Team.
