Where can digital technology contribute to safety

Is the biggest contribution condensing large amounts of data into something a human can assess? 0

Tuesday, June 11, 2019, London, The Geological Society

The map of challenges to a safety manager is changing all the time, with changing drilling and operating methods, a different web of staff competencies available, and digital technology which both improves safety and potentially worsens it, through automation replacing competent and motivated people. And lots of digital technology offers to help, but can a software package really improve on a human’s ability to assess a risk, with so many variables involved?

Perhaps software does the most when it condenses large amounts of data into something a human brain can better assess. We also see digital technology which treats the human as a robot requiring condition monitoring, including scanning eyelids for sleep, or monitoring voice for stress levels. What does this do for people’s motivation? Do people really drive better when their driving is continually monitored?
