A strong, measurable safety strategy is the best way to improve the safety and productivity of your employees. Although lagging safety indicators can and should be used to help report safety statistics, real time, contextual data can transform a safety measurement program into one that is proactive, predictive, and engages workers much more effectively.
Fortunately, the technology exists for a new kind of safety environment that connects workers as part of an engaged safety community. Connected safety platforms can help safety managers make proactive decisions based on real time reporting from workers and sensors. When configured to meet the unique needs of each work environment and its management, a data driven safety program can analyze safety in real time, measure the impact of safety training, and deliver relevant safety information so that management can make appropriate decisions to help reduce and mitigate risk exposure. Specifically, here are three benefits of using a connected, data driven safety solution:
The benefits of a connected safety solution that is worker-powered and driven by real time, contextual data are limitless. Understanding how everyone within the organization - from the worker to the C-suite - benefits from this information as part of a data driven safety program can help improve safety metrics without hurting productivity.
