A Sense of Safety
Sensors Are Improving Onsite Safety for Construction Projects
On construction projects, safety saves—both lives and money. In the European Union, more than one-fifth of all fatal workplace accidents happen in the construction sector, according to the European Commission. The same rate exists in the United States, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). In response, many organizations are incorporating sensor technology, including mounted sensors or clip-on wearables for workers, to improve safety on project sites.
