Certified Occupational Safety Specialist (COSS) Matt Joens joins Chris Bellina and Matt Clark on Episode 10 of our podcast.

Matt is a client executive for MākuSafe, a safety technology company formed by a powerful team of software, hardware, and data engineers. During the episode, Matt and our HazTek hosts discuss how digital technology has significantly advanced the functions and expectations of personal protective equipment (PPE) and how beneficial it is for construction workers and safety professionals to include wearable technology in their kit. Matt describes MākuSafe’s digital PPE device that is worn on the upper arm and records temperature, air quality, ergonomics, and sound — in real time — and results in safer and healthier workers.

Matt also cites success stories from clients who, after using digital PPE, have found that the technology and analytics have helped their sites become safer overall. Matt’s years of safety experience and passion for his work make this episode extremely educational for all our listeners.
