Ep. 4 — The StrongArm Data Flex

ONE WEEKLY HIGHLIGHT FROM MILLIONS OF DATA POINTS

This is the fourth iteration of Data Flex - for the first, head here.

Each week, StrongArm’s Senior Manager, Data, Aoife, will plumb our considerable data depths and pull out one tasty morsel for you to chew on. (Our data team processes more than 2 millions hours of safety data every month, so there’s a lot to choose from.) 

Throw it out during your next Zoom call and watch coworkers’ eyes widen in disbelief. (You’re welcome.) Better yet, consider it an opportunity to evaluate safety in your own workplace. Can anything be improved there? 

Here’s Aoife:

"Considered as part of OSHA's ‘Fatal Four,’ falls and struck-bys constituted over 52% of fatal incidents for construction workers in 2018. Combined with transportation incidents, these three categories comprised nearly 77% of all fatal incidents in 2018. There is tremendous opportunity to proactively intervene and deploy safety wearables in this space to reduce injury and protect these workers."
