Topic - Impairment Testing Saves Lives!
Menlo Park, California Apr 29, 2021 (Issuewire.com) - Antonio Visconti, the founder and Chief Executive Officer of SOBEREYE, the innovative workplace risk impairment assessment tool in active use by mining, manufacturing, and transportation companies around the world, will be a presenting speaker on the topic "Impairment Testing Saves Lives!" at the 2021 Virtual Minnesota Safety & Health Conference, on Tuesday, May 4th at 1 p.m. Central Time.
"Fatigue, illness, alcohol, and drugs are all forms of impairment. Impaired employees are putting themselves and others at risk of injury and death, exposing businesses to enormous liabilities. Ninety percent of accident reports indicate human error as a contributing cause, but human error is a consequence, not a cause," Visconti said, in previewing his remarks for Tuesday's presentation. "In my session, I will discuss an innovative and practical solution to measure impairment risk in the workplace."
Now in its 87th year, the Minnesota Safety and Health Conference is the oldest and largest gathering of workplace safety and health professionals in the region. Most educational sessions will offer the ability to interact with the presenter and other attendees. In addition, the two-day event includes expanded opportunities for attendees to connect in the online Expo area and to meet vendors face to face in their own virtual rooms.
Visconti is among 30 notable speakers at the two-day event, including executives and officials of 3M, OSHA, Aon, Chubb Global Risk Advisors, Target, and Braun Intertec, as well as the Minnesota Safety Council. Registration and additional information about the 2021 Minnesota Safety & Health Conference are available at https://minnesotasafetycouncil.org.
Launched in Silicon Valley in 2015, SOBEREYE helps companies prevent workplace accidents by measuring impairment risk on the job when it matters the most. Every day, thousands of people show up to work fatigued, sleep-deprived, under the effect of medication, or drugs. Most people do not recognize they are impaired. SOBEREYE's one-minute, the self-administered test can save lives in the workplace. Additional information is available at http://www.SOBEREYE.com.
