Wearables in the workplace is a hot topic, but what difference can they make to your workplace safety culture? How do you identify risk, design it out, measure and improve?

Traditional ergonomic workplace assessments are subjective and don’t paint a full picture of the movement strain being placed on individuals. However, with detailed and objective data, organizations can make fully informed decisions with confidence.
In this workshop attendee’s learnt how wearable sensor technology is being used by leading businesses globally to identify movement risk, make manual handling policy decisions, develop and execute effective manual handling training programs, and to inform and guide equipment selection, manage onsite and interactive training programs and change manual handling movement behaviour.
