Tomasz Puczyowski – interview with the creator of PABLO

What is PABLO?

PABLO is an employee safety support system.

Why did you get involved in this project
First, it allows me to pursue my professional ambitions, and in particular to broaden my knowledge of radio technology. Secondly, it is an interesting product on the market.

Who is PABLO for?
PABLO is intended for industrial customers, both small, medium and large, corporate.

How can we reduce costs with PABLO?
We can do it on two levels:
Optimization of traffic and employee management
Increasing the safety of the employee – securing and preventing accidents, as well as enabling faster intervention when such an accident occurs.

Why should customers choose your product?
Because they have no other alternative …

How was PABLO created?
PABLO was created as a result of a gathering of several people with different ideas and experience in various industries. As a result of information from the market that such a solution would be useful, PABLO hatched.

Has this system already saved anyone?
I do not have such information directly, or saved it, but we have information that it certainly helps to manage employees and helps in the implementation of OHS guidelines for increasing safety in workplaces.

You have 60 seconds, try selling me the PABLO system.
I am not a trader, I can convince you technically.
A solution that, in the first place, allows you to maintain voice communication with an employee who works alone. In the managerial and technical staff, it gives the possibility of immediate intervention in the event of a breakdown or events that require a quick response of employees at the facility. The system is independent of other telecommunications media – telephony, cellular and wired, which is on the plant.

I understand that in the event of a power failure, we will still have the PABLO system and voice communication?
Yes, this is the assumption, we even use the term critical communication, i.e. communication in emergency, critical or unexpected cases. We emphasize that the system is independent of any other infrastructure.

Will you describe briefly how the system works?
The base of the system is the independent radio infrastructure, which I have already mentioned. That is the possibility of voice communication between employees using radiotelephones. Radio telephones work on separate, protected frequencies, which are leased from the electronic communications office. This is the frequency that is assigned to a given user. It is legally protected. This is the basis for ensuring critical communication between employees.

The second tier allows you to locate the worker. Both in the open area through the GPS system, and in all kinds of closed facilities, where the GPS signal is already degraded and it is not possible to base the location on its basis, using radio tags, which are an additional element of this infrastructure. The third element is the ability to generate and identify alarms that are triggered when an incident occurs to the user. It can be triggered from the “panic” button, from the fall sensor or from the so-called “dead man”, that is, by deliberately forcing the user to react to the radio.

Who is your customer?
Our clients are mainly production plants, which in their infrastructure very often have departments that require continuous movement, for example in the case of glassworks. As well as departments where there are potentially dangerous areas for the employee who performs his tasks there.

Introduce yourself in two sentences who you are and what your path was before you created PABLO.
Tomek Pugłowski, right age, from the beginning of his professional career and his professional interests, strongly associated with radiocommunication, also as a hobby. The career path was perhaps not very varied, I worked in 3 private companies, in each of these companies I created both the management and executive parts. I’ve always placed myself in what could be called a development department. I dealt with the concepts of new products, searching for market niches, and implementing various ideas and concepts. All the time closely related to broadly understood radiocommunication.

How many years of experience do you have in the industry?
