The Internet of Things is changing the game for keeping workers safe. Companies can aggregate data on movement, operational efficiency and incidents through connecting warehouses, shipping yards and trucks to help safety managers identify high-risk activities or areas in need of improvement.
Deloitte’s “The Future Computed” report estimates that by 2020 there will be almost 26 billion IoT devices around the world from refrigerators to connected cars with over 95% linked up within five years time!
Companies who are able to aggregate data on movement, operational efficiency and incidents can make better safety decisions. By connecting warehouses, shipping yards and trucks companies have the opportunity to spot high-risk activities before they happen which will reduce workplace injuries.
The Internet of Things is creating new possibilities in every industry, and the facility management field will be no different. With IoT, managers can reroute truck traffic to avoid accidents or update a driver’s GPS so they don’t get distracted while driving. Now is the perfect time for any company that wants an edge over their competitors to invest in this powerful technology!
