As we’ve immersed ourselves in the various industries and settings that have the highest risk of injury, we have noticed some common themes and myths about how to lift safely and the place that safety has on the job. In this blog post, we wanted to clear the air and debunk the most common myths associated with safe lifting.
Many of these benefits apply when implementing agile as a safety management process. Companies can use it to solve problems faster, improve outcomes, increase ROI for the safety department and safety initiatives, and improve employee morale, engagement, and ownership of safety practices. Scrum excels when applied to complex and unpredictable problems. This is good, because while safety problems can sometimes be straightforward to solve, more often they can involve complexities and intricacies including different priorities and lack of authority and accountability.
We are excited to announce our first shipment of commercial Arc wearable product and kiosk system to one of our Ergo Partners! Over the next few weeks, we will be hard at work to fulfill the rest of our pre-orders to all of our clients. We are thrilled to take this next step and to see what the future holds.
"It's an incredible feeling, after having worked closely with our early adopters through several prototype iterations, to finally start shipping our finished product to those companies with the mission of eliminating workplace injuries," says Andy Chan, CEO. "We've been very fortunate to be able to work with visionaries in the field who want to drive significant change in an important industry like industrial safety. From the team we've built over the years, to our ergo partners and clients, it's awesome to see a group of people take an idea from concept to reality!"
Safety needs to matter, it needs to be efficient, it needs to be transparent, and it needs to produce results. At VIT, we are working on designing or adapting new management methodologies for safety professionals to increase their department’s effectiveness and impact on their company.
