Construction work remains one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States in 2022. The private sector is hard at work addressing these various dangers in new and exciting ways, most of which incorporate smart technology, with advanced engineering and tried and true solutions from the past.
When an organization’s job is to respond to fires, explosions or any other disaster that may come along, ensuring their first responders are protected is paramount.

For most industries, safety is a cost overhead. Although essential, it can slow down productivity or even, in the event of a safety incident, lead to a complete stop while issues are resolved, and investigations carried out. However, if the approach to safety changes from a reactive one to proactive, it can become an aid to achieving greater efficiency, lower costs, and higher profit margins.
