No 1 – Wearables: The Value Is In The Data
“It’s important to understand that the value of wearable sensors is in the data insights that they enable, rather than the hardware of the devices themselves,” Join LifeBooster’s Program Manager & Ergonomist, William Thomas, as we dig deeper into the value derived from wearable technology and risk analytics.
When an Ergonomics or Health & Safety professional approaches a risk assessment, our primary objective is to enable clear and accurate prediction of risk. This ability to clearly parse out risk insights is fundamental to making the right decisions about where to prioritize our efforts and in understanding what risk mitigation strategy is going to be most effective in protecting our workers, reducing the impacts of musculoskeletal disorders, and enabling optimization of our work systems.
Its important to understand that the value of wearable sensors is in the data insights that they enable rather than the hardware of the devices themselves. Historically data collection and risk assessment processes have been time-consuming and fraught with reliability and objectivity challenges. Multi-point sensor technologies help address these challenges by providing a powerful tool for collecting comprehensive and accurate risk data. If your objective is to have the most precise and consistent risk analytics possible – then multi-point wearable technologies are a powerful emerging tool for achieving that goal.
