NextGen EHS – Technologies Impacting Your Future
October 13, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
New technologies are emerging rapidly, and the COVID-19 pandemic has amplified the need for applying innovative approaches to Environmental, Health, Safety to drive safety performance, lower costs, improve oversight and increase skills. Technology such as smart glasses, wearables, AI, drones, autonomous vehicles, robotics, and more are demanding that you rethink your EHS programs and adapt to a rapidly changing work environment. These technologies create both new opportunities and challenges for EHS professionals, and understanding them is critical for success. Come listen and learn about:
- Technology adoption modalities and personas within any workforce
- The most rapidly adopted technologies for EHS – like drones, smart wearables, LiDAR, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and fit-for purpose mobile applications
- How to think both strategically and tactically about incorporating these technologies into your organization to safely increase end-user adoption
You won’t leave empty handed, either. Attend and gain access to the EHS supporting BSI Connect Summit, and to a free demonstration of a fit-for-purpose mobile application for emergency planning.
