Construction companies, project teams and even insurance companies are increasingly turning to digitalization, and more specifically the internet of things (IoT), to gain much-needed visibility on the jobsite to improve safety, reduce risk and operate more efficiently.
A new study released by Dodge Data & Analytics, in partnership with Triax Technologies, found that nearly three-quarters of contractors surveyed believe IoT will help them control occupational risks, and about half expect it to reduce risks to the public, as well as financial risks and those related to property damage and construction defects. These findings represent a dramatic shift in thinking when it comes to digitalization of the jobsite.
