HR noted for being technology averse laggards and now this report points the spotlight at Health & Safety across enterprises and public sector organisations
Until recently, workplace health and safety professionals have not traditionally pushed the technological envelope. From an entry-level safety specialist to a seasoned vice president of EH&S, most would agree that safety professionals from the past 20 years would be broadly classified as technology laggards. Now, due to a number of factors such as changing demographics, advances in the capabilities of technology, a growing number of connected devices, and new demands on safety professionals themselves, the paradigm is shifting. This Verdantix report takes a closer look at the most innovative technologies altering the safety management landscape, including predictive analytics, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, safety beacons, wearable devices, site sentinels and drones.
