“The opportunity to make a huge impact in saving worker lives through technology is in our grasp,” says the National Safety Council, on its website.” It is a big change for many organizations, but one that is so worthwhile. NSC is here to help you every step of the way on this journey to embrace safety innovation and save lives.”

As part of their mission to help employers navigate the options of safety technology, the  National Safety Council has created a free assessment employers can use called Organizational Readiness Assessment for Safety Technology in the Workplace.

This assessment, through a series of questions, suggests a company’s level of digital readiness according to a five-phase model, which includes:

  • Observing: Passive participation in exploring what and how technology is used for safety
  • Experimenting: Evaluating proof of concept for specific safety use cases
  • Adopting: Investing in developing and acquiring technologies for safety
  • Integrating: Actively seeking out technologies to maximize value for safety
  • Transforming: Driving new innovations for safety
