Accelerating Safety Solutions

We aim to work collaboratively, but how can you collaborate without knowing what’s out there?

I recently got the opportunity to learn more about the (other) amazing initiatives going on in the world of safety and resilience at the Lloyd’s Register Safety Accelerator Launch. The attendees were an impressive mixture of industry specialists, tech start-ups and innovation experts.

After introductions from Lloyd’s Register Foundation, Lloyd’s Register and their innovation partner, Plug and Play, we launched into the ‘lightning talks’ with two tech start-ups pitching their safety products. The first was from RealWear, who design augmented reality, wearable computing for industry – think of a headset with video, audio and voice recognition, providing guidance and reliable feedback between people on site and other offices. Next was GuardKnox who provide automotive cyber security – preventing hackers from taking over your car remotely.

Once we’d wrapped our heads around these exciting new ideas, Lloyd’s Register ran their first Innovation Challenges round, laying out 3 specific challenges to improve the safety of life on board ships and floating platforms. Through Plug and Play, the Safety Accelerator will match small technology companies with safety solutions to larger corporations who are looking to adopt new ideas to keep their staff and customers safe. Interested companies who think they can address these challenges should apply for this first round by the 5th August.

For me it was exciting to be brush up against the world of tech start-ups and see some emerging themes and ideas which may become mainstream very soon. It was also a great way to stay in the loop as developments in resilience and safety speed ahead. I’m looking forward to seeing how the Lloyd’s Register Safety Accelerator gets on and the interesting technologies it will support.
