Safety professionals now have access to more safety technologies than ever before, but injury and illness statistics remain stagnant in many cases. Part of the problem might be that a majority of organizations are still working from paper and spreadsheets within siloed data systems. One silo doesn't know what another is doing, and that’s not a recipe for success. In fact, it creates an almost insurmountable barrier to achieving great performance.
Technology solutions and some key applications can help organizations create a single source of truth for their health and safety data. That comprehensive data can provide insights into areas in the organization where incidents are occurring and why, creating a roadmap to managing risk. By upleveling their safety efforts with technology, they can take that step from good to great.
This webinar will cover technology solutions and key applications that will transform safety programs for the better. Topics include:
