The Safetytech Hub


The Safetytech Hub took place in May 2022, organised by Safetytech Accelerator in partnership with the Financial Times and hosted by Lloyd’s Register Foundation at the  Safer World Conference 2022.

We brought together thought leaders from business and institutions to debate where and how digital technology and innovation is transforming the way industry manages safety, risk and resilience in the face of increasing business complexity and new social and sustainability imperatives.

We presented two sessions which have been recorded and you can watch below:

1. The Future of Industrial Safety – Can digital safety technologies help address business challenges and reach ESG goals?

2. Being a Safetytech Entrepreneur

Safetytech are digital technologies applied by businesses to tackle safety, risk and resiliency challenges. In 2020 Lloyd’s Register Foundation estimated that Safetytech could be worth hundreds of  billions dollars globally.  We all know about tech entrepreneurs, but what is different about being an industrial safetytech entrepreneur? What are the opportunities and challenges in industrial safetytech? In this session, moderated by Safetytech Accelerator, we will discuss what we mean by industrial safetytech, and then move on to a panel discussion with four safetytech entrepreneurs.
