Today, everything and everyone is connected through some sort of technology. Your phone connects to your watch, which connects to your car, which connects to your at-home digital assistant which can then turn the lights on when you get home. It’s this convenience that most have come to be rather accustomed to over time — and it is even breaking into the way we think about occupational safety.
On this episode of the podcast, Editor Sydny Shepard interviews one of the leaders in connected safety, Sean Stinson, the Chief Growth Officer at Blackline Safety to talk with me more about what connected safety means and how it can benefit the industry.
But that’s not all, we also have with us Prajwal Deshpande, the Director of Safety Technology at NiSource. Praj is working with Sean and the Blackline Safety team to implement technology to improve safety at his company. Hearing Praj’s practical implementation of technology is definitely something you won’t want to miss out on.
