A ‘connected approach to safety’ from Honeywell
Honeywell has announced the formation of Honeywell Industrial Safety, part of Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions and comprised of Honeywell’s safety products businesses: Honeywell Safety Products, Honeywell Analytics, Honeywell Specialty Safety and City Technology.
According to Honeywell, the new business unit has been brought together to offer organisations “the connected safety solutions and real-time intelligence they need to respond to safety threats, manage risk to their business and improve productivity.”
Says Sean Clay, vice president and general manager, Honeywell Industrial Safety EMEA: “Many organisations and their workers worldwide already depend on Honeywell products to help keep them and their business safe from risk. However, as operations become increasingly complex, hazardous and geographically dispersed, they are also looking for real-time visibility of what is happening across their sites.”
“By bringing the expertise of Honeywell’s safety products businesses together, Honeywell Industrial Safety can support these needs with a connected approach to safety.”
The company say they are already exploring new ways of integrating sensors, PPE, software applications and databases to create an accurate, real-time picture of plant-wide safety which it says will empower people to respond quickly and confidently to workplace threats, as well as offer business gains in productivity, efficiency and profitability.
