Executive Summary

This report provides operations, safety and risk managers with insight for incorporating digital technologies to enhance real-time risk management. The majority of accidents and incidents that occur involve assets and workers. Digital technologies such as industrial wearables, digital twins, control of work software and asset performance management software enable closer cooperation between EHS and operations, present new methods to decrease SIFs and introduce innovative solutions into the hierarchy of controls by combining data on worker activities, location and health with asset condition data for integrated risk management. Digital technologies combine insights about the condition or health of an asset with worker information to manage and mitigate risks in real-time.
