Digital Transformation in the Life Safety, Security + Risk Industries

Share this post

Oct 20, 2022

Although it seems that technology disrupts industries overnight, the reality is that those disruptive changes can be years, if not decades, in the making. This is as true in the life safety, security and risk industries as it is for other industries. Technology is bringing new tools and possibilities to these industries, and digital transformation will play a major role in ensuring the safety of the built environment.

To extrapolate from trends in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry, we are likely just beginning a time where technologies will mature in the risk industry and become more client-facing. The merging of technology and consulting services is increasingly expected with the use of predictive modeling, building information modeling (BIM) and remote sensing processing, among other areas.

Furthermore, global conditions and trends are exerting pressure on more rapid adoption of technology. Macro influences such as extreme weather, the rise of remote working and a demand for more infrastructure spending are creating a need for technology that allows us to work smarter, be more efficient and produce better data insights.

In the oil and gas industry, for example, company downsizing, reorganizing or acquisitions can pose challenges to emergency response planning. As companies reorganize and grow, response plans can quickly become outdated and non-compliant. Effective digital technologies can aid in managing response planning administrative duties associated with continually evolving personnel, operations and regulatory requirements. Utilizing database-driven web-based technology for multi-facility operations can specifically help ensure enterprise-wide compliance on multiple government agency fronts.

In the nuclear power generation industry, artificial intelligence solutions that have proven to be effective in analyzing complex data sets can improve complex manual review of condition reports by 80% and free resources from review to address program improvement.

Digital technologies, when used alongside the expertise of engineering professionals, can help improve safety and reduce risk. Learn more about Jensen Hughes’ Digital Solutions
