5 Top safety tech trends in 2020

SHP online is looking into the Tech trends in the safety profession for year 2020. Tech trend for 2020 has an inroad from 2019.

Direction from 2019:

We saw safetytech very much a talking point at industry conferences and exhibitions fuelled by the general advances of Industry 4.0. The 2019 Safety and Health Expo for the first time featured a Safety Technology Zone, dedicated to a range of devices and applications ranging from  alarms to virtual reality and computer vision systems. It featured not only exhibitors but also a range of topics in this area. It was especially pleasing to report through SHP on developments during 2019; and pleasing to see them as fulfilment of my previous predictions! To summarise the general trend, I see safetytech moving from the formative to the normative stage.

Looking ahead we can see three main threads of emerging technology impacting safety in the Industry 4.0 era. These can be summarised as:

  • Applied AI;
  • Automation;
  • Analytics.

Looking away from the emerging technologies, certain safety trends has been identified; there are:

  1. Enhanced immersive reality
  2. Startups as an innovation driver
  3. Agile safety
  4. Smart Safety Systems (S³)
  5. Personalised safety
