EHS on Tap: E60 Advancing Your Worker Safety Program with Practical Connectivity

Safety program technology

Even before a great many of us were working remotely, connectivity has been and will always be a key component of successful safety programs and healthy safety cultures. Open communication, engagement from employees and management, and effective change management all depend on connectivity, and technology can help facilitate all of these factors on which effective EHS management depends.

On today’s podcast, we’re chatting with two experts, Matt DeLorenzo from Safety io and Chris Borneo of MSA Safety who can guide us through the practicalities of connectivity, the technology involved, and how it can serve to create better workplace safety programs. Matt has spent 11 years collaborating with industrial and fire service personnel around the world, first as an MSA new product development team member and then as the business director of Safety io, where his primary goal is to identify and deliver services that help safety managers improve safety outcomes. Chris has been at MSA for the past 10 years in roles that run the gamut from manufacturing operations to product management, with 5 of those overseas on expat assignment in Berlin, Germany. Today, he leads one of MSA’s product management teams focused on the development of connected wearable safety technology that raises the bar for safety programs around the globe.
