Wearable operational video (such as helmet cams), mobile cameras and sensors, and other visual technologies can provide crucial intelligence, which then can be gathered, communicated to personnel in disparate locations, and integrated to enable unified collaboration for public security responses. The possibility is emerging for a new generation of video applications that will enhance public security and disaster management.

By encouraging injury reporting early and for all injuries (while less severe and less costly), by implementing a return-to-work program, and by starting an earnest safety training program, that business reduced its’ workers compensation costs to $850,000 in one year.
The only real question for most small business owners is, ‘How much will I be paying?’
That’s not an easy question answer, so here’s some fast context...
In the age of evolving shopper expectations and technology advancements, the global retail industry is in the midst of a profound shift in retail operations. To gain a deeper understanding of retailers’ focus, concerns and investment plans, Zebra conducted a global research study across a wide spectrum of retail segments, including: specialty stores, department stores, apparel merchants, supermarkets, electronics, home improvement and drugstore chains. The results of this study are shared in this 2017 Retail Vision Study.
The 2017 Safety Automation & Technology Trends Survey, sponsored by ProntoForms, was launched in early July 2017 by EHS Daily Advisor. The responses paint a real-world picture of how safety professionals are using new technologies to manage the many challenges that they face every day.

When it comes to emergency shower and eyewash equipment, a ten-degree difference could make all the difference. The right water temperature is critical to ensuring medically suitable results for an injured person. Current ANSI Standards (American National Standards Institute) are referenced by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) when evaluating facilities and mandate a temperature range defined as “tepid.” This is clarified as a 40-degree temperature range for flushing fluids spanning from 60°F to 100°F [16°C to 38°C].

Procurement is a risky business. Procurement managers are responsible for obtaining materials, goods, and services at the lowest reasonable cost—and they are responsible for ensuring that the supplier or vendor reliably provides high-quality goods, in both the present and the future. They must make sure that the organization does not knowingly or unknowingly engage in, support or turn a blind eye to criminal behavior, like bribery. They must negotiate contractual agreements that protect the company against possible disputes, and much more.
Add to those responsibilities and risks the expectation that organizations will commit themselves to corporate social responsibility (CSR), embracing business practices that value and account for more than just short-term financial performance.
But procurement managers are unlikely to have extensive expertise in EHS issues, so EHS professionals have an important role to play in identifying and mitigating the environmental, health, and safety-relat
