"The manufacturing space is no stranger to workplace safety technology. During the last decade, the sector has been an early adopter of solutions, such as wearables and inspection drones, with the aim to keep people safe. It is because of this commitment to safety that leaders in the manufacturing space have already been exposed to indoor sensor technology and the basics of the Internet of Things (IoT).
It is also thanks to this track record for safety prioritization that the world has long looked to the manufacturing sector for cues on worker safety. There is now an opportunity for manufacturing to take the lead on worker safety in a new context."
