Are You Ready to Return to Work? Intelex Hosts Ready2Return Virtual Conference for Post-Pandemic Health & Safety and Business Continuity

The “new normal” of the post-pandemic workplace requires reimagining all aspects of the workplace, employee health and safety, and being ready for anything to ensure business continuity.

Intelex Technologies, ULC, a leading global provider of SaaS-based Environmental, Health, Safety and Quality (EHSQ) management software, is hosting a three-part post-pandemic workplace event, the Ready2Return Virtual Conference, taking place June 9, 16, and 23, 2020.

Intelex & Workday Make you Better at Health and Safety Management

Why is an Environment, Health & Safety and Quality (EHSQ) platform provider like Intelex exhibiting at Workday Rising? The connection may seem tenuous, but the dependency is very real. Workday is the world’s fastest growing Human Capital Management HCM solution, and for many companies it is the System of Record (SOR) for all employee data and functions.  Yet Workday offers limited EHSQ capabilities for companies working in regulated industries.  At the request of their customers, Workday approached Intelex to become a Workday Access Partner, integrate with Workday’s HCM and deliver a comprehensive EHSQ management solution. For Intelex to be an effective EHSQ solution, it requires correct and current worker and location data—bad data generates bad results.  

Together, Intelex and Workday have created the new Intelex-Workday Gateway, a flexible, easy-to-use integration to synch worker and location data into our Intelex platform. This “Workday Approved” solution is a win-win for both Workday and Intelex customers. Workday customers now have access to a full-featured EHSQ solution to become better at health and safety management, while Intelex customers get improved results across multiple applications due to correct and current worker and location data. 

The “Workday Approved” badge means that the solution is ready to go out-of-the-box. Workday’s rigorous approval process requires extensive integration testing and customer acceptance testing so that any company that purchases the solution knows it is … Read more...

Health & Safety is a Team Effort: Industry 4.0 and IIoT

 
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 are forcing companies to rethink their approach to health and safety. Digital transformation uses innovative IoT endpoints and their data to improve the company’s core business, but they make health and safety more complex than ever. When properly deployed and integrated, sensors, endpoints and devices improve the individual safety of workers and identify additional areas for process improvement. 

More connected workers, more devices, more data — this massive influx of information and capability requires an end-to-end solution that addresses new and evolving EHS challenges. A solution that can capture the data produced from edge devices, analyze it and organize it in meaningful ways to improve health and safety programs and processes. Intelex Technologies and Honeywell are working together to create an integrated EHS solution that solves the challenges posed by Industry 4.0 and IIoT.  

The Number of Connected “Things”  

The global IIoT market will grow to $310 billion USD by 2023, and some of that growth will be from the increase in the number of “Connected Workers.” This means that the average industrial worker is going to be wearing and carrying multiple devices to help them do their job. Deployment, management and training … Read more...

Biomimicry Looks to Natural History for Innovation

Innovation is usually discussed with only the future in mind, but a keynote speaker at the National Association of Environmental Managers (NAEM) Forum in Louisville, Ky. believes the key to meaningful environmental progress lies in our natural past.

Janine Benyus, co-founder of the Biomimicry Institute, presented an audience of 700 professionals from over 300 companies with the concept of Biomimicry: an approach to innovation that seeks to emulate nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies to find sustainable solutions to human challenges. The goal is to create products, processes and policies — new ways of living — that are well-adapted to life on Earth over the long haul.

Benyus – a biologist, author of numerous books, innovation consultant and self-proclaimed “nature nerd” –  said Biomimicry is a way of looking back at 3.8 billion years of good ideas in nature to allow us to leapfrog ahead without having to go through … Read more...

Notes from the National Safety Congress

By Sandy Smith

The Houston Astros may have missed out on the World Series, but the city is bustling with activity at the start of the National Safety Congress.

Streets were shut down around the National Safety Congress (NSC) at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston in preparation of a campaign visit from President Donald Trump. But that didn’t stop as many as 14,000 attendees from making their way to the Congress & Expo. (No word yet on whether the president plans to join us to learn more about occupational safety and health!)

Seeing Hazards Clearly

In her opening remarks at the NSC, Deborah A.P. Hersman, president and CEO of the National Safety Council, talked about learning to see hazards clearly. “Safety professionals aren’t born, they are trained. And it takes training to see hazards clearly,” said Hersman. “Before I got my glasses, my definition of normal … Read more...
