Dear IOSH Members,
IOSH Singapore Branch is delighted to invite you to join us for an IOSH Networking Night at Marina Mandarin Singapore on 31st Aug 2018, Friday. We are pleased to have Mr Andy Lewis to share the Technology – Our Safest Enabler. Technology is changing every aspect our lives, at home and at work. So, it’s a natural progression that technology, if it hasn’t already, will begin to affect the way we approach workplace safety in the very near future.
This presents a unique opportunity to achieve both business and people outcomes, while at the same time balancing cost and ROI. The current innovations are prohibitively expensive, but there was a time when a fax machine was prohibitively expensive.
As an industry we can demand the solutions that will meet our needs and keep our people safe. This includes factoring in changes like an ageing workforce, a population with declining fitness and ever-increasing demands on business to do more with less.
Prior to his arrival in Singapore for our branch networking night, Lewis will be speaking at SAFETYconnect 2018, in Brisbane, Australia on 30th Aug. Be sure not to miss this great evening.
