The construction and building materials industry is standing at the cusp of a new wave of technology-drive disruptive innovation. The adoption of such new technologies could have the potential to provide the efficiency, productivity, and safety breakthroughs the industry has sought for decades.
Connected work sites and workers are giving companies real-time access to intelligence on potential safety hazards. audits and inspections done by robots and drones not only help keep workers safe from hazards, but also improve the overall productivity at a job site. Adoption of smart wearables and other EHS 4.0 technologies can help with micro-geo-location of risks at any jobsite, create virtual perimeters for hazardous zones, and preemptively help in mitigating incidents and accidents. Leveraging its experience from serving several Fortune 1000 construction and building materials customers, ProcessMAP empowers companies to significantly improve their EH&S performance and mitigate financial and operational risk by gaining real-time visibility into actionable analytics.
Even in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, as the global economy has been thrown into the turmoils of uncertainty, the construction industry continues to demonstrate its commitment to worker safety and sustainable practices. Construction industry leaders are rapidly adopting innovation to improve safety at the construction sites. Just recently, we started a digital journey with Bilfinger Westcon Inc., a diversified and full-service industrial construction and maintenance contractor.
Well-crafted worksite safety programs can generate considerable ROI and actually contribute to the financial health of the organization. Workplace injuries remain common in the construction space, despite the advancement of environmental health and safety technologies and techniques. Businesses in the sector reported 2.8 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses in 2017 the latest year for which data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics is available. More than 920 of these incidents resulted in death.
Since the development of the business world as we know it, workplace injuries have been frequent and detrimental. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, workplace injuries occurred at a rate of 2.8 cases for every 100 full-time employees. This is a slight decrease from 2016's 2.9 cases and a significant difference from 2003's incidence rate of 5 cases for every 100 employees. Although this decrease in risk reflects the large improvements organizations have taken in the Environmental, Health and Safety landscape
