This report provides corporate EHS managers with insight for incorporating Internet of Things (IoT) technology for preventing collisions within their operations. Struck-by and collision events pose a real threat to worker safety across multiple industries around the world. Struck-by events account for the second highest number of fatalities in the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) ‘Fatal 4’, coming after falls, with 10.1% of workplace fatalities. While struck-by events can include falling objects, approximately 50% of these events are caused directly by powered vehicles and equipment. This report identifies how advances in IoT technology have led to new digital solutions to prevent collision events between vehicles, workers and equipment and provides buyers with guidance on key steps to take in adopting IoT solutions for collision avoidance.
