The Industrial Athlete And Next-Leveling Safety In The Workplace

The Fourth Industrial Revolution – where distinctions between the physical, digital, and biological worlds are blurred – is now. What does that mean for employers and their human capital?

Oliver Wyman analyzes how companies can get ahead of workplace injuries and take their risk management to the “next level” in protecting valuable employees’ health while improving productivity and profitability.

The initial study concludes that the use of wearables for workplace safety may reduce injury frequencies by over 20%

The Industrial Athlete And Next-Leveling Safety In The Workplace


Oliver Wyman is seeking to expand our data set and develop even more powerful metrics to test the value and refine the use of wearable devices.

  • Are you interested in participating in an actuarial study into how wearables provide key insights into safety? 
  • Do you want to know which worker movements are "high-risk"?
  • Have you been tasked with creating a safer, more efficient working environment while reducing costs?  

Our study will seek to address these issues using the data collected from StrongArm's wearable device. As a study participant, you will receive a copy of the results of the study.


We are seeking corporate partners who employ “Industrial Athletes” in physically-active job types, who are interested in piloting StrongArm’s wearable devices in upcoming studies.

We will be quantifying results in metrics which translate in an insurance context – changes in frequency of claims, average size of claims and total loss cost. 

To apply to be part of the pilot or if you want more information, please contact us.
