Since its introduction in the 1950’s, the Hierarchy of Controls (HOC) has been a critical tool used to effectively control occupational hazards exposure and reduce the risk of on-the-job injuries & fatalities. As organizations evolve their safety systems, there is a growing interest in how to leverage technology to improve the application of HOC and the effectiveness of controls selected.
Please join Verdantix’ Nathan Goldstein and Tom Brown as they explore how technology creates new opportunities within the traditional HOC framework. We will examine how digitization is helping front-line workers more easily select the right controls needed to address risks. We’ll share how technology-enabled HOC can drive better EHS performance. And you’ll walk away with best practices for introducing digital solutions within your existing safety program.
In this session, we will cover:
· What is HOC and how it is applied;
· What market factors are driving interest to enhance HOC with technology;
· How incorporating digital solutions in HOC improves key EHS metrics; and
· What best practices you can use to realize value and avoid potential pitfalls.
