WEST DES MOINES, Iowa, March 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — MākuSafe will embark on its first ever European Road Show beginning late April and extending through May, 2023. The tour will include stops in more than five cities, and will allow the wearable safety technology company to meet with clients and prospective users as well as present and exhibit at several conferences across Europe. The award-winning safety technology company, founded in America’s heartland in 2016, now has thousands of users across three continents in addition to being used in about half of US states. Since its official launch in 2020, MākuSafe has been used to monitor in excess of two million hours of work. This constitutes billions of data points gathered to better understand industrial risk and identify work related hazards.
This move toward strategic market expansion is fueled by Co-Founder & CEO, Gabriel Glynn‘s, drive to use wearable technology and data to help organizations across the globe ensure the safety and health of their workers. In 2022, Glynn had the opportunity to present MākuSafe at INNsafety: The Safety Innovation Showcase, held in Paris. During that event, Glynn began to forge relationships with European business leaders who demonstrated a strong desire for safety innovation and rapid adoption of new technologies to reduce safety incidents and claims.
“We’re currently working with several multinational companies that have a presence in Europe, so it made sense for us to explore strategic market expansion here. This roadshow enables us to meet with safety leaders from organizations across Europe and England, and discuss their top safety management needs and hazard monitoring priorities,” said Glynn.
Safety ROI and Impact Reporting
MākuSafe’s North American clients are reporting incredible safety ROI and results such as; achieving 0.0 TRIR over 31 months on multiple construction sites, and reducing lost time injuries by 56%, resulting in hundreds of thousands in Workers’ Compensation loss avoidance in year one.
Numerous organizations are successfully using MākuSafe data evidence to reduce strain and exertion injuries, and experiencing very significant ROI.The opportunity for a safer workforce is now within reach for industrial organizations in Europe.
The Connected Workforce Can Align With Industry 4.0 and ESG Efforts
MākuSafe is also engaging with clients to aid their efforts beyond workplace safety. Having a now “connected worker” enables capabilities that contribute to digital transformation and
Industry 4.0 advanced manufacturing initiatives. Further, the ability for workers to have input, provide feedback, and report observations from the front lines directly to leadership by pushing a button and speaking into their wearable device, contributes greatly to worker engagement and participation, and can be a component of ESG efforts. Inclusion and more data driven safety and production systems can help organizations achieve greater results.
