AREA Offers Guidance with New AR Safety Infographic

A growing number of enterprises have begun introducing AR into the workplace, equipping employees with smart glasses and other devices and providing new and exciting ways to perform work tasks. The goals are increased productivity, improved safety, easier sharing of expertise, and more.

But as AR introduces new ways of working, are there safety risks organizations should be considering? The member-led AREA Safety Committee has answered that question with the newly published AREA Safety Infographic.

The AREA Safety Infographic explores the potential safety risks of using AR, as well as the benefits of AR in the workplace. It is intended to be used as an educational tool for enterprises developing their AR plans. By giving careful consideration to safety before deploying AR solutions, organizations may be able to avoid issues before they occur.
