(Opening Keynote) Move Wearable Down the Body & Safety Up the Hierarchy of Controls

9:00 am

Organizations that improve safety reap enormous benefits from improved productivity, higher earnings and sales to lower turnover, better brand reputation and more. Connected wearables that sit below the neck - including tags, arm and wrist bands, gas sensors, dosimeters and more - can have a huge impact on safety by helping move risk management up the hierarchy of controls - moving from basic PPE and administrative controls into engineered controls. In today’s session, hear from Guardhat, pioneer of end-to-end connected safety solutions, on how they've deployed technology that helps move safety up the hierarchy of control - to alert workers and supervisors of danger before incidents occur, and better understand behavioral, process and site patterns that need to improve.
