Wearable technologies are augmenting safety efforts in a range of industries. In this session from Augmented Enterprise 2022, enterprises discuss how they are testing and using wearables to improve workplace safety and mitigate risks. Devices covered include: Smartwatches, smart bands, smart PPE, exoskeletons, and other body-worn sensors.

- What variables can you track with wearable sensors (workplace activity, employee biometrics, location, environmental conditions, ergonomics)?

- What are the different form factors and associated costs?

- What are the types of exoskeletons and when should you insert an exoskeleton over a robot?

- Data Analytics: Turning wearable data into actionable insights

- What are the challenges of adopting safety wearables and how are companies overcoming these?

- Privacy implications and user acceptance

- Best practices for measuring ROI

- More: Device management, hygiene, smart PPE, smartwatches, employee wellness, workers’ comp, COVID safety, etc.
