Learn How to Conduct Safer Inspections with Augmented Reality

Zach Wassenberg will present a session on the partnership between Burns & McDonnell and Manitoba Hydro at the 2019 International Lineman's Rodeo safety conference.

Safety is the first thought on a lineman’s’ mind when they start the day and the last thought as they finish their work. As such, it is paramount that the utility industry gives tools to linemen to improve their safety and work experience.

When wearable technologies are combined with the right software; a lineman’s safety can be increased while improving their productive and overall experience in the field. Burns & McDonnell has partnered with Manitoba Hydro International to deploy VisualSpection software on RealWear HMT devices.
