Environmental Health and Safety experts may be aware of the technologies that shape their work today, but what about the technologies that are in development now? Technology has caught up with the intricacies of manufacturing and is becoming standard practice within the industry. Cloud computing has become the norm - making the job of EHS managers easier. However, EHS technology is already looking forward: on the horizon is the Internet of Things (IoT), a fertile ground for new innovations, especially for Health and Safety. Sensors and detection methods aimed at securing dangerous work areas show the importance of these capabilities. IoT Innovations in H&S are found to be safer, less costly, and more productive than human or physical barriers on site.
