Corvex has recently partnered with BEworks, a leading management consulting firm, to increase safety accountability in the workplace. The two organizations have released an initial report entitled Leveraging Behavioral Economics and Technology to Reduce Workplace Incidents to define the benefits of using behavior-based methods to improve safety. The report also outlines new application features within the Corvex solution to optimize behavioral interventions and decrease workplace risks.
The new report explains how evidence-backed behavior change techniques can increase worker engagement and encourage safer behavior using Corvex technology. The Corvex Connected Safety Platform uses sensors and smart Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to provide relevant, real-time safety data to help safety professionals predict and prevent workplace incidents.
As the first collaboration of the new partnership, a combined team of experts from Corvex and BEworks have developed a Safety Index Score™ to better predict workplace accidents and help workers overcome behavioral biases that might cause them to act unsafely.
“We know that behavioral interventions can reduce unsafe behaviors by as much as 20 percent. More importantly, we believe that giving workers a voice makes them happier, more productive, and safer. The Corvex Platform has the unique capability to incorporate BE methods to engage the worker in their own safety, and the safety of those around them,” said Ted Smith, CEO and President of Corvex Connected Safety. “Understanding the risk profile of not only specific worksites but individual workers, and even the entire organization, will help us deploy the right behaviorally-triggered interventions to improve safety in real-time. Concurrently, we’ll be giving safety professionals and leadership teams the leading indicators they’ve been waiting for, so they can prevent problems before they happen.”
“We commend Corvex for its forward-looking and scientific approach to improving workplace safety,” said Kelly Peters, CEO and Co-Founder, BEworks. “Science tells us that current workplace safety communications like training and compliance reviews often fail to motivate safer behavior, like wearing personal protective equipment, putting workers at risk. By embedding behavioral interventions into its flagship IoT platform, Corvex is demonstrating leadership in a sector that needs to do all it can to prevent worker and workplace safety.”
