INNsafety, a unique safety 4.0 event connecting innovative start-ups and Health & Safety (H&S) leaders, is back for its third edition on 23 June in Paris to shape the future of health and safety in the workplace.

This year, six innovative start-ups have been chosen to showcase their solutions to H&S experts from the sponsor companies – L’Oreal, Procter & Gamble, Sanofi, Unilever, Saint-Gobain, Enablon and ERM – as well as other leading European and international companies.

The selected start-ups are:

  • Attensi: Attensi, a Norwegian company, helps organizations to make transformational changes through gamified simulation training. Driven by the best of psychology, learning, and gaming, Attensi's solutions engage staff with measurable impact on organizations’ KPIs. Attensi’s gamified simulation training can make safety culture a competitive advantage by creating actionable and measurable safety culture training, at scale.
  • Flyability: Flyability is a Swiss company and reference manufacturer of indoor drones for confined space inspections. Their collision-tolerant technology allows inspectors around the world to remove the risks related to confined space entry or work at height, while dramatically improving the efficiency of operations. Their brand new technology, equipped with LIDAR, perfectly addresses predictive maintenance in global industry 4.0 initiatives.
  • MākuSafe: MākuSafe® is an award-winning American safety, data and analytics solution aimed at improving worker health, safety, and productivity while reducing incidents and mitigating workplace hazards and risk exposures. The patented MākuSafe® system combines a robust safety management software platform with innovative wearable technology that provides immediate access to real-time EHS data with predictive value.
  • Moten Technologies: MOTEN is a French data-driven ergonomics start-up helping companies to improve workplace safety and employee productivity. EHS experts use MOTEN’s solution to identify and reduce injury risk in the workplace and drive behavioral change. The solution is composed of innovative muscle sensors and a SaaS platform that is easy to use and implement on the field.
  • TRAXxs: TRAXxs, a French start-up, develops and markets professional connected insoles that transform safety footwear into smart PPE. They provide EHS management with a simple, complete and effective solution that does not change employees' habits. The XSole smart insoles ensure workers' safety and reduce the number and gravity of accidents in the workplace.
  • WearHealth: WearHealth is a German start-up that helps organizations to build a world-class manual workforce with the latest augmentation technologies to reduce injuries, improve well-being and boost efficiency. Their solutions have been validated by industry leaders (e.g. E.ON, Bridgestone, Daimler and Fiat).

These innovative solutions address key operational health and safety challenges that are common to large companies across a range of sectors, including the growing problem of musculoskeletal disorders and ergonomics, the elimination of major risk, risks related to lone workers, training, and the use of data and technology for risk prevention.

The six start-ups will have a dedicated space to demo their solutions and to engage directly with the attendees in small groups – close to 100 Health & Safety directors and decision-makers from major international companies.

This year's event follows the first two editions, which brought together more than 15 international firms and 13 start-ups, and led to several pilot projects. INNsafety provides a unique opportunity for health and safety leaders to meet innovative start-ups and openly discuss the challenges they face on a daily basis.

“Occupational health and safety is at the heart of the concerns of companies that understand the crucial role of innovation in improving working conditions for all employees. Many initiatives across various sectors are flourishing in this field, primarily to address high-risk situations and behaviors, but also to try to address evolving health risks (ergonomics, psychosocial) resulting from the changing world of work. We look forward to the third edition of INNsafety, which will allow six new start-ups to showcase six innovative solutions designed to improve the health and safety of employees.” states Arnaud Szymkowiak, partner at ERM.
