The device for individual monitoring of the physiological parameters of the employee has been developed, which makes it possible to fully assess the situation during the work process. This device allows to monitor the intensity of harmful effects on the employee during the work process, study the personal response of the body of each employee to a certain type of activity, as well as the simultaneous effect of various factors. The distinctive feature of the new system of individual monitoring is the algorithm for calculating the combined and correlated effects of working zone factors on the human body. To implement this solution, continuous parameter transmitter connected to the server is placed in the device. The built-in camera and the microphone make it possible to coordinate the employee from the outside in case of emergency, and the group of parameter transmitters of the working area allows to notify in due time about the exceedance of the permissible values of harmful and hazardous factors. The architecture of the system is modular in nature, which allows to quickly change the groups of transmitters to specific operating conditions without introducing any drastic changes to the structure of the monitoring system as a whole. An example of individual monitoring device designed primarily for mine and underground works is given in the article. The current configuration of the device is made in the form of a helmet and in its essence is its improved version. Technical equipment of the helmet is in its upper part, namely, under the stiffener. The speaker is located on the inside. For greater convenience of the employees, on the inside of the helmet, unlike its standard analog, the soft lining is placed that covers the electronics from the direct contact with a person and improves the ergonomics of the device as a whole.
