Using IIoT-Connected Devices for Worker Health & Safety
March 28, 2019 / Isaac Maw
Workplace safety is important in any field. For example, in my line of work, I’m always vigilant of dangers from hot coffee, eye strain, or paper cuts. But in industrial environments such as the manufacturing, petrochemical, or mining industries, the potential dangers are more severe. That’s why researchers and engineers are exploring new ways to use industry 4.0 technology to protect the health and safety of industrial workers. Engineering.com recently sat down with IBM to find out more about how the company’s IIoT platform, Watson IoT, provides solutions for worker monitoring and safety.
