Safety and Risk Metrics: Driving Accountability in the Field

Jobsite safety is critical for a number of reasons – it protects the well-being of customers and employees, and it prevents expensive stoppages in work as investigations take place. The challenge is the operations, safety and risk groups speak very different languages. This session will focus on how metrics can be the common language that unites operations, safety and risk. It will also examine how an emerging wave of smart technology is using “big data” tactics to help companies predict issues before they even happen and alert workers about potential dangers.
