In this edition of the SpheraNOW podcast, Andy Hosman, Sphera’s vice president for SpheraCloud, explains why it’s only a matter of time before we see more and more companies make the transition to wearables in the workplace to help keep workers safe.

We examine some of the challenges facing companies dealing with implementing safety wearables in the workforce, including managing the sheer amount of data generated. We also take a look at the evolution of wearables and discuss how they can improve safety and wellness in the workplace. Augmented and virtual reality, real-time communication and exoskeletons are just some of the emerging technologies that are really changing the game for safety.

The future presents a fascinating intersection of data-driven predictive risk management and the integration of the Internet of Things and other devices. As Hosman explains, the secret to success for employing wearables for workplace safety lies in getting wide-scale user adoption and a establishing a strong safety culture. We invite you to learn more about how the dawn of EHS 4.0. is making the workplace a safer place to be.
