DEKRA's business development manager, Daryl Wake, explains the vital role that technology can play in the future of health & safety function in industry
"In today's rapidly evolving technological landscape, digitalisation is transforming industries across the board," said Wake, adding that health and safety concerns are not an exception. With technological improvements, businesses may boost security protocols, boost productivity, and promote a proactive risk management culture.
"With advancements in technology, organisations can enhance safety measures, improve efficiency, and foster a culture of proactive risk management. By harnessing the power of digitalisation, companies can enhance their safety programmes, prevent incidents, and protect their most valuable assets – their employees."
Wake further explained how DEKRA has partnered with the National Safety Council. Both organisations jointly released a white paper outlining the benefits of safety technology adoption in the workplace. The paper emphasises that technology not only improves safety outcomes but also enhances employee engagement, quality standards, and job satisfaction.
Research shows that organisations leveraging digital solutions experience lower injury rates, reduced downtime, and increased productivity. By embracing digitalisation, companies can create a safer and more productive work environment while fostering a culture of continuous improvement.
