No 14 – Safety is Sustainable
“Often safety and sustainability are discussed independently and the relative value of each is assessed in isolation, but the goals and value proposition of these two concepts are inherently intertwined,” Join LifeBooster’s Program Manager & Ergonomist, William Thomas, as we discuss how wearable technology is the missing link to creating a truly sustainable safety system.
Much of the success of sustainability initiatives relies on having access to dynamic data on waste generation and conservation. Having the right data to inform decision-making is fundamental to driving organizations towards operational excellence. Wearable technology is the missing link to unlocking dynamic safety data that can help you create a truly sustainable safety system.
Safety and Sustainability Share a Unified Goal of Conserving Organizational Resources
Often safety and sustainability are discussed independently and the relative value of each is assessed in isolation, but the goals and value proposition of these two concepts are inherently intertwined. Central to this goal are both sustainability and safety, which have the unified goal of conserving organizational resources. Sustainability aims to achieve this through environmental stewardship, waste minimization, and safe waste management. Safety aims to achieve this through the elimination of workplace hazards, protection of workers, and optimization of working conditions.
Safety Contributes by Conserving an Organization’s Most Important Resources – Its People
Safe organizations are sustainable organizations, where the potential negative impacts on society, local communities, the environment, and employees are identified and mitigated. Safety directly contributes to the goals of sustainability by conserving one of an organization’s most important resources, its people! Organizations that champion safety and ergonomics are positively contributing to the advancement of their overall organizational sustainability, as well as the world we live in.
Wearable Technology Provides the Data to Chart and Track an Organization’s Sustainable Safety Journey
Wearable technologies provide dynamic risk data which informs key decision-making and provides a means of tracking and quantifying the impacts of organizational initiatives that champion employee safety. In the same way that access to data is fundamental to charting and tracking an organization’s sustainability journey, so too is the need for high-quality, dynamic data to provide insight into the risks faced by frontline employees. Implementing a risk analytics and multi-point wearables system can help you unlock the data to define and track your safety journey and elevate it to stand alongside your corporate sustainability initiatives.
