It comes down to the value proposition. Safety pros would love to use the latest technology, but their budgets have been fixed for years, and their budgets have never included technology. This needs to change. Safety uptake of technology is limited from an ROI perspective because injury rates are so low. For safety, the argument is why spend $10,000-15,000 on wearables when you don’t have that much of a problem. It’s the operations folks who have money to invest.
