How IoT and Connected Workers Improve EHS Management
Digital innovative technologies such as IoT connectivity are not only making devices work smarter than before – employees, too, become more connected via intelligence – as far as employee morale, loyalty and actions are concerned.
It is no surprise that IoT-connected and integrated management systems are fast becoming the backbone of modern enterprises. Connected systems and IoT infrastructure can greatly contribute to a better and seamless human capital safety management.
Nowadays, the common denominator for improved overall employee safety management is worker connectivity. Integrating IoT and other collaborative tools into your employee health and safety (EHS) management systems can further enhance workers’ collaboration and connectivity, which in turn can have a positive impact on health and safety practices.
Connected worker technology has significantly contributed to overall human capital safety. For example, wearable technology in the workplace has been shown to improve the health of individual workers and contribute to the mitigation of safety hazards and the reduction of harmful environmental impacts.
SHEQX’s solution transforms your company’s data into rich visuals for you to collect and organise, so you can focus on what matters to you. Stay in the know, spot trends as they happen and push your business further.
An EHS management tool connected to IoT infrastructure can easily identify the need for additional training to be scheduled, notify a supervisor to conduct preventative maintenance, and send immediate notifications if risks arise due to faulty machinery or incapacitated workers.
Real-time reporting and statistics on safety indicators for detailed analysis drive better decision making and trend analysis. Similarly, collaborative tools and technologies can enhance EHS functionality and contribute to better safety management. Interactive dashboards, message broadcasting to worker groups and cloud-based software tools can aid safety and bottom line.
