Executive Summary

Increasingly, wearable electronic devices (or “wearables”) are being used as specialized EHS tools for collecting and disseminating data to enhance workplace safety. Employees can wear trackers, sensors, communication devices and heads-up displays that monitor bodily worker location and health, deliver real-time warnings, and enable information exchange with co-workers. This webinar will help convey the specific EHS needs that wearables can help address, various wearables available today, and factors influencing whether these technologies can be successful. The webinar will be derived from our recent research and hosted by Verdantix Research Director Steve Bolton.
