The Connected Worker

A Roadmap for Preparing Your Organization for New Technology to Reduce Safety Risks

If you polled your workforce, you probably would find that most of your workers are “connected.” Smartphones, tablets, Bluetooth headsets, smart watches and fitness trackers are ubiquitous; connecting us to the internet, to each other, to our personal computers, to our gaming systems and our cars, not to mention our home security cameras, our thermostats, and even our refrigerators.

For many of us, the workplace is where we’re least connected; where we’ve found the fewest uses for our powerful pocket computers. In fact, in many workplaces, smart phones are viewed as productivity-inhibiting distractions or cybersecurity risks. EHS managers also may view them as potentially hazardous, not only for the distractions they create but also because they can be difficult to clean or disinfect, or because their intrinsically safe or explosion-proof status is unclear. For these and other reasons, the use of electronic devices at work has been limited.

Keep reading to find out how you can evaluate the current status of your organization, and what steps you can take to help create an EHS-savvy, connected workforce.
