Independent research firm Verdantix, released today their latest report: Smart Innovators: Industrial Wearables. The report highlights the rise of digital consumer wearables and how EHS software providers are continuously exploring their potential in changing the environmental, health and safety functions in industrial settings.
The Verdantix report defines industrial wearables as:
Digital devices worn by workers that passively collect, store, transmit or receive information about worker location, bio-metric signs, proximate hazards and performance of technical tasks.
It highlights the broad range of wearable devices which have relevance to EHS priorities including ‘Alerting workers about site evacuations and entry into hazardous areas’, which is just one area the Airsweb R&D team have been investigating and developing.
It also confirms the appetite by EHS decision makers for wearable technology over the next two years.
Rob Leech, Airsweb Product Development Director said; "Innovation is the key to market leading products, the more innovative the more we satisfy the future. At Airsweb we see Innovation as a continued journey not a single idea or event. Insight and discover are core to Airsweb innovative principles across our entire business."
Airsweb have earlier been recognised by Verdantix as setting the trend in innovative wearable EHS technology in their ‘How Digital Technologies Enhanced Health & Safety Training Outcomes’ report, released in April 2018.
