Worker Safety is a bigger issue than ever with fewer skilled employees, rising healthcare costs and increasing regulations. Digital Worker Safety is protecting companies and their employees from the financial loss and human cot of workplace injury.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports more than 270 million occupational accidents per year. In Germany, the Bundesanstalt für Arbeitsschutz und Arbeitsmedizin (BAuA) estimates the number of occupational accidents at one million per year. The costs of these accidents are defined in terms of direct and indirect costs. The American National Safety Council estimates the average direct costs for occupational accidents is $4800 per incident. In Germany, workplace injuries cost the employer on an average €3300 per incident. The most common causes of occupational injury are poor ergonomics, manual handling of heavy loads, misuse or failure of equipment, exposure to general hazards, inadequate safety training and clothing. By monitoring machine performance and operator behavior with IoT and CSX, a company can identify the causes of workplace injury early and take immediate preventive action. For example, when the data indicates that an operator is using a machine in an unsafe manner, the operator can receive an alert containing specific instructions or an invitation to participate in training. Or if early indicators of performance degradation are identified, the operator can receive an alert to stop using the equipment or lessen the load on the equipment, and technicians can receive a task to perform preventive maintenance. On an average, a company with 10000 workers will report 1700 workplace injuries per year at a cost of ca. €6.8 million. A 10% reduction in accidents can decrease a company´s injury related expenses by ca. €680000 per year.
