Safety Technology encompasses all the new technologies now being applied to workplace safety: mobile apps, wearables, machine sensors, cloud-based software, predictive analytics, 3D printing, robotics, real-time employee monitoring and tracking, PPE tracking with embedded sensors, etc.
Workplace deaths caused by falls from elevated work locations are consistently second only to those caused by motor vehicle accidents. Last year OSHA issued more citations for fall protection violations than for any other category.
The market for safety footwear has expanded over time as more workplaces have required foot protection from impact, electric shock and chemical hazards as well as enhanced slip resistance in both indoor and outdoor work environments.
Third-party environment, health, and safety (EHS) software is superior to internal software and manual programs in terms of both cost and effectiveness. That’s according to “State of the Industry: EHS Program Trends,” a recent report from KPA and EHS Today.
Honeywell announced a complete, modular software solution to help industrial companies enforce compliance with key health and safety requirements as their employees returning to the workplace, including body temperature checks and automated entry management processes.
In the past several decades, the size of industrial systems and the technology that grows alongside it has, naturally, expanded. Alongside it, though, the hazardous factors that cause major accidents — like unstable conditions and behavior — have become even more complex, thereby expanding in a similar vein at a breakneck speed.
