Over the past decade, the practice of workplace safety has been made increasingly effective and efficient by advances in technology. Enterprise SaaS applications, predictive analytics, mobile computing, and internet-connected environmental sensors have all created new avenues for EH&S leaders to enhance their firm’s safety performance, measured by metrics such as injury rates, cost-effectiveness, or increased production. Digital beacons, a technology that first found traction in the retail and commercial markets, are a relatively new addition to the list of tools EH&S leaders have at their disposal (see Verdantix Innovative EH&S Technologies For Your 2017 Roadmap). This report helps anyone in an EH&S role – on both the supply side and corporate side – understand how beacons function, how they can be used in a safety context, and how their role in the market will evolve in the future.
