Highlands Ranch, CO – DORN Companies recently released a new white paper that dives into the world of workplace safety technology, discussing the most effective solutions utilized by major enterprises around the world while offering proactive strategies that prevent injuries and keep costs from claims and lost productivity at a minimum.
From the factory floor to construction sites and offices, workers rely on their employers to help them avoid injuries and remain productive. Combined risk factors from age, physiology, task technique, workstation design, and other sources present serious hazards for workers in all settings, and musculoskeletal disorders continue to prevail as the leading cause of workplace injuries.
In recent years, safety innovators have developed a range of technologies designed to alleviate risk and provide holistic solutions for the dangers that can keep employees out of work, costing their employers hundreds of thousands of dollars in workers compensation claims, absenteeism, and various other indirect costs that can seriously endanger an enterprise’s bottom line. From desktop ergonomics to enhanced software training, wearable devices, and even exoskeletons, technology will shape the future of workplace safety.
The paper explores the root causes of the most common afflictions that keep workers from achieving their full potential, from musculoskeletal disorders and repetitive strain injuries to chronic pain and fatigue, and highlight how organizations of all types can adopt new technologies and protect their workers and their bottom lines.
Key subjects discussed in the paper include:
- The economic incentives for adopting new technologies
- The power of artificial intelligence and predictive safety tools
- Uses for wearable safety equipment and exoskeletons
