UNSUNG HEROES: HONOURING THOSE WHO ENSURE SAFETY IN THE RUGGED INDUSTRY
To mark the World Day for Safety and Health at Work 2021, we want to honour the people, and technology, who work together to ensure the safety of those in dangerous environments. Whether they’re fire and rescue experts or emergency medical service workers who work high on an oil rig or deep in a mine, they have two things in common: their work is vital and dangerous, and they depend on a combination of teamwork and technology. They are unsung heroes who approach their work with dedication and professionalism.
Safety is a mindset, but technology helps to uphold it. At our core, we are committed to improving the productivity of workers in the rugged industries while helping them operate with maximum safety.
