Performance and Why It Matters

Improving safety performance is a team effort that is based on data that easily can be monitored and measured to prioritize where safety programs can have the most impact.  When it comes to improving performance in Health and Safety, this webinar, “Performance and Why It Matters, sponsored by Intelex, explains why organizations must leverage their most important asset - their tools and data - to improve future H&S performance. 

Better tools and processes give workers the power to improve their performance through data-driven decision-making and enhanced situational awareness. The result is a stronger EHSQ practice that drives improved overall business results and revenue. Tomorrow’s businesses will rest on a strong foundation consisting of rigorous EHSQ performance, singular dedication to customer satisfaction, and a passion for innovation.

Intelex 2019 Middle East Customer Forum: The Future Is Now

EHSQ leaders in the Middle East and Intelex innovators and partners met in Dubai to share best practices and opportunities for growth and innovation in 2020 and beyond.

Dubai is a melting pot; millions of people from different cultures, coming together to support a glowing city that has risen out of the desert like a phoenix. Everywhere you look, the city/state is expanding, from the world’s tallest building – the towering, twinkling Burj Khalifa, reaching 2,722 ft into the air – to the suburbs that are stretching out around the city to accommodate workers and their families who have come to Dubai to support the city’s main drivers: construction, energy and tourism.

Neil Berry, SVP and GM of Intelex’s UK office, welcomed over 100 attendees to the 2019 Middle East Customer Forum, telling them, “The future is continuous innovation.”

Berry quoted His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the vice … Read more...

How the Data Revolution is Changing the Safety Professional’s Role

The safety professional’s goal in an organization has not changed significantly since its inception. The mission of the safety professional is to safeguard workers and contribute to the goals of the organization by anticipating, recognizing, evaluating, and controlling workplace hazards. What has changed is the way we collect data and the data we collect. 

Organizations always have tracked data, looking for trends. Your organization may be most interested in tracking market and economic trends, but you probably focus on data related to leading and lagging indicators, such as near misses, audit reports, training records, and injuries and illnesses. Until very recently, tracking leading and lagging indicators of safety performance has been a matter of paper documents that either were filed in a cabinet or entered into a spreadsheet or rudimentary software program. The process of collecting the information was time-consuming, and the amount of information that could be collected was limited by available resources, namely, how much “spare” … 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...
