Health & Safety in the workplace and how technology is driving change

Marketing Team

The UK is often looked at as one of the safest places in the world when it comes to workplace health and safety. With countless pieces of legislation in place to help heighten the scrutiny businesses face, ensuring a safe working environment for all employees. With detailed health and safety laws and harsh penalties for non-compliance, companies have a duty of care. They should be implementing technological change to reduce any safety risk.

Here we look at some of these changes for the future.

Remote control drone

With the use of drones massively increasing worldwide, there has been much use for drones in the workplace. Drones can access dangerous areas, significantly reducing the risk to employees at heights or hazardous areas. This is an excellent way of demonstrating how technology creates solutions to everyday health and safety issues. Drone technology is particularly useful in understanding work or accessing remote areas, as new statistics from the Building Safety group have highlighted that 1 in 5 workplace accidents are caused by working at heights.

One of the newest and best drones on the market for this type of work is DJI’s Matrice 30 Series. Check it out for yourself.

Check-in Technology

The introduction of various check-in and desk booking technology has been a game changer for many employers and helps quickly identify who is on site. This technology has been precious since the Covid-19 pandemic, with many workers, asked to work from home. If desk booking has been used, this can even help with track and trace efforts to identify who may have come into close contact with someone who’s tested positive for Covid-19, along with ensuring they are providing the correct level of fire warden and first aid cover across the site.

One of the best on the market to date is Steriports Steriscreen which gives you built in check-in technology as well as a hand sanitising station.

Artificial Intelligence

In 2017, the UK government launched funding to implement artificial intelligence to support safer working practices. One of the outcomes of this was a solution powered by artificial intelligence, which continuously monitors and reacts to specific dangers in real-time, whether that’s only opening doors if clothing or equipment requirements are met or alerting security to an individual based on a predetermined profile. Specific equipment requires minimum standards of PPE and will not operate until it has been recognised to ensure an employee is wearing the correct equipment.

There are number of businesses that can provide bespoke packages for your facility or warehouse needs, not just one can fit the mould.

Projected Safety Signs

To align with futuristic views of workplace safety, businesses are using portable gobo projectors to produce safety signs, allowing a facility to have no dwell time to become more profitable. Repainting caution lines and other safety essentials can be expensive and result in business downtime in the process. By purchasing a projector and gobo outlines, such as caution lines and stop signs, businesses are able to illuminate the required signs with minimal effort and maintenance. This outcome is to have indestructible markings and signs that never fade due to damage or dirt collection.
