Saving lives with technology – the world of industrial safetytech



Hear from industry leaders and technology innovators on how technology can help solve industrial safety challenges. Have a safety challenge to solve, or a technology which could help? Join us on the 14th of June 2023 10-1pm.

As part of London Tech Week 2023, in collaboration with Discovering Safety – a programme of work led by The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) – we are delighted to bring together speakers from the construction and civil engineering world for a panel discussion on the potential of safetytech in safety critical industries, with a tech investor perspective. We will then convene a panel of UK technology companies who have developed technology in the category.

The companies represented recently took part in the world’s first regulatory sandbox for industrial safetytech. We will also be sharing some of our findings from this work.
