TLDR:

  • Employers are embracing safety technologies to enhance workplace safety.
  • Implementing safety technologies requires overcoming obstacles such as data management and employee privacy concerns.

Employers are recognizing the important role that safety technology plays in enhancing workplace safety. The National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) conducted interviews with employers who have implemented safety technologies, such as wearable devices, and found promising results. Employers are learning about safety technologies through their workers’ compensation insurance providers, who often fund pilot projects to test out the technologies. Despite facing obstacles such as data management and employee privacy concerns, employers are finding ways to address these challenges through regular data review meetings and transparent communication.

The safety technologies implemented by employers have shown a clear positive impact in their workplaces. By constantly monitoring the data and feedback from these systems, employers were able to identify issues and make changes to improve safety. Beyond direct safety improvements, employers have reported additional positive business impacts, such as fewer hours of lost time, enhanced employee morale, and increased efficiency overall.

Looking towards the future, employers have a clear vision for how safety technologies can be enhanced to provide even greater workplace safety. From monitoring a wider range of exposures to leveraging automation, employers are optimistic about the potential of these technologies. While some employers see safety technologies as game-changers, others believe that there is still room for improvement. However, the rapid advances in safety technology and the ambitious future plans of employers suggest that these solutions will continue to have a significant impact moving forward.
