In 2018, over 5,200 families lost a loved one in a workplace incident in the United States. The National Safety Council Work to Zero initiative aims to make workplace deaths a thing of the past. This effort, which brings together EHS insight, the latest available data, and the knowledge of an unparalleled network of EHS and technology leaders and practitioners, seeks to identify the most promising innovations for eliminating workplace fatalities. From augmented and virtual reality, machine learning, and wearables to drones, robots and cobots – this session will provide grounding in the intersection of EHS and technology.
