Featured Technology Reports from Work to Zero
The Work to Zero initiative at NSC is designed to eliminate workplace fatalities through technology. A recent national survey found that while employer implementation of new safety technologies is increasing, one of the biggest barriers to adopting technologies is a limited knowledge of what exists.
To address this barrier, Work to Zero is featuring technologies that have been increasing in popularity and availability, and are believed to be effective in reducing top workplace risks. Complete the form to get the following reports:
