Future of mining with wearables
Harnessing the hype to improve safety
As mining operations become more complex, safety is becoming even more important as automated machines and people are thrown increasingly into the mix.
Wearables – clothing, gear and other accessories incorporating computer and advanced electronic equipment – is one technology critical in ensuring mining executives are equipped to address Health and Safety (HSE) challenges. But, what are the challenges faced by leaders for adoption and implementation of these technologies?
Deloitte in collaboration with NORCAT presents an insightful report, which offers an understanding of the end-users’ needs and helps mining executives get a better understanding on how they can engage mining leaders, frontline workers and external stakeholders such as unions in driving the adoption of wearables.
