Let’s Get Connected – The How and Why of Connected Safety
February 17, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
The Internet of Things (IoT) has paved a rapid path in how we interconnect using computing devices that send and receive data. There’s little debate that we are better informed today through our connected devices like laptops, phones, cars, and even our kitchen appliances than ever before. Such technology growth has changed how we live, spend our personal time, work, and yes, how we safely connect and protect the worker.
Have you ever wished that you had a better view into how your teams are working in the field with respect to safety? Have you been trying to improve your response time to and better manage incidents? Would sharing data between independent safety systems lighten your work load? Are you looking to improve your safety program overall? If any of these are true, then you need to attend this webinar presented by Scott Gaddis of Intelex and Dave Wagner of Industrial Scientific.
This webinar will focus on how connected safety increases the ability to maintain compliance, increase system capacity, improve employee behavior, and leverage the practitioner’s opportunity to lead programs more effectively and efficiently. Our time together will focus on the importance of using technology for connecting the worker directly to the safety and health management system by collecting data in real-time using cloud-based software and technology-enabled devices.
In this webinar you will learn
- The benefits of adopting a connected safety program,
- How connected safety will give you better insight to working conditions and incidents as the occur, not after the fact,
- How to improve your response to and use data to help eliminate workplace accidents,
- How data from independent systems can merged to create more efficient processes, and, most importantly,
- How you can start to get your safety program connected.
