EHS professionals must lean on processes to effectively navigate occupational safety issues, hazards, and regulations. There is no shortage of technology available, but EHS professionals have a shortage of time to thoroughly evaluate solutions available to them.
This session will provide resources for EHS professionals to evaluate different types of technology including artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, Internet of Things, wearable devices and more. Strategies for building processes around risk management based on data will be discussed, with emphasis on how to embed tech-informed actions into existing health and safety processes.
