By Manoj Verghese | June 17th, 2016 SafetyCulture CEO Luke Anear to Speak At Construction Technology Summit SafetyCulture News | Reading Time: < 1 The Construction Technology Summit is currently in full swing in Melbourne, Australia; providing the opportunity for contractors, developers and consultants to connect with construction technology innovators. This event is co-hosted by Aconex and the Victorian government in an effort to educate participants in emerging digital technologies and the impact those technologies can have on infrastructure and asset management sectors. Topics will explore boosting productivity, enhancing safety and quality, helping manage complexity and risk, and reducing delays and cost overruns. Aconex CEO, Leigh Jasper says, “thanks to a culture of innovation and collaboration that has driven the Australian construction industry, contractors and developers are working with founders of digital construction start-ups to deliver capital projects more efficiently. At the same time, Australian digital technology companies are building a new engine of growth for the country’s economy.” SafetyCulture is excited to be a part of the summit as CEO, Luke Anear, will be speaking on a panel about the future of field processes. With over 17 years of experience in the industry, and two startups under his belt, Luke will weigh in on how technology can have a positive impact on the construction industry by encouraging a more proactive culture around safety. Construction has previously been a reactive sector, responding to legislation that has been proposed after incidents have already occurred. Thanks to today’s technology, workers no longer need to simply follow the guidelines pushed down from management as a result of legislation, but can instead take safety into their own hands with more frequent and more communicative reporting.
