BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER, GETAC UK
With over 20 years of experience in rugged technology, software and IT, Tom Baldwin expects more companies that are engaged in heavy industrial and other demanding, dangerous work will move from off-the-shelf consumer-grade technology to industrial tech for their workers, to avoid slowing workers down and even putting them at risk.
According to Baldwin, industrial technology is more than just rugged devices, it is a total solution that combines of rugged computing devices, software, accessories and professional services in a purposeful range of specifically tailored solutions. High-risk industries can further OSH and improve work efficiency with the powerful features such as highly readable screen, stable connectivity, and comprehensive certifications. Furthermore, with the solutions fully equipped with warranty and prompt customer services, frontline workers can focus on their tasks with a peace of mind.

Dedicated his career to the field of hearing and deafness, Dr. David Greenberg founded health-tech company Eave to design, manufacture and distribute the world’s first smart ear defenders with integrated noise monitoring. As a former clinical audiologist, Dr. Greenberg recognizes how industrial solutions can protect over-exposed workers, adjust working methods, and remove noise hazards at source.
The combination of Getac’s powerful rugged mobile computing with Eave’s lightweight and durable hearing protection system protects industrial workers from the long-term health impact of noise exposure. The solution also protects businesses from the legal and insurance liabilities of occupational noise. Ultimately, with the right technology, it is possible to end the isolation and loneliness that comes with hearing loss.
