Industry-leading organizations like Johnson Controls (JCI) have been increasingly adopting digital technologies to ensure workplace safety for their employees across the globe. JCI’s strategy for workplace safety is predicated on a three-step approach:
- Offer cutting-edge technological solutions for safer workplaces – For example, JCI’s OpenBlue platform brings together traditional operational technology, existing IT systems, and cloud applications infused with AI and advanced technology such as digital twins, enabling insight, integration, and collaboration. OpenBlue aims to enable operating technologies to seamlessly communicate and integrate across a broad range of systems.
- Adopting digital and mobile-first EHS solutions to enable proactive risk mitigation and data-driven decision making. JCI utilizes ProcessMAP’s cloud and mobile EHS solutions to report leading indicators like near-miss incidents, perform audits and inspections, and track on-time closure of CAPAs, amongst several other use-cases.
- Expanding the scope of EHS solutions to non-EHS functions for a stakeholder-driven approach towards workplace safety and sustainability. This final step encourages everyone within the organization to become an active stakeholder in ensuring comprehensive health and safety at the workplace.
