By enabling predictive maintenance, hazard detections, simulations, autonomous operations, and more, the risk to workers is decreased, promoting a safer workplace. The pandemic has exponentially increased the need for technology in order to keep workers safe. This involves wearables, contact tracing, as well as increased automation to allow for physical distancing.

At this virtual event, in partnership with CIM and SMS, the industry will collaborate on innovative uses and applications for technology to increase and advance safety measures.
