Building an industrial safety and disaster prevention management (ISDPM) system can effectively prevent unforeseen industrial accidents, such as fires, explosions, releases of hazardous chemicals, and leaks of poisonous gases. To prevent disasters caused by the smoldering and spontaneous combustion of hazardous wastes in a hazardous waste storage area, we proposed a novel intelligent environmental monitoring system (IEMS) for ISDPM applications. The proposed IEMS based on the integration of a monitoring sensor network, remote central database server, desktop/laptop/mobile network, and smart user interface has the ability to smartly and automatically help users prevent disasters from occurring. Through using network connections, all of the devices were able to perform real-time actual data transmission directly. Therefore, users could select a communication product from anywhere at any time to scrutinize the details of the overall current ambient environmental information, including surveillance images, thermal images, gas concentrations, air quality, temperature, and humidity. The results obtained with the proposed IEMS in practical field tests suggest its high suitability for use in a wide range of industries.
