Innovation: Driver safety management system called Intellisense, which incorporates a dynamic mix of sound science and proven engineering principles to reduce traffic accidents. The system alerts a driver in real-time to high-risk behaviors and biometric levels so that adaptive learning occurs. The system is a powerful application of human computer interface technology, real-time data mining and effective behavior change using biofeedback loops.
2017 Honorable Mention Recipients
- Patricia M. Allen, STS: Mobile learning laboratory equipped with a slippery walkway, unique shoe covers, trolley system, large mirror and flat-screen monitor for instant feedback to trainees.
- David Catallo, CRSP, and Matthew Clarke, CRSP: Peer-to-peer participatory ergonomics program that empowers production associates to ignite change and reduce workplace risk.
- Joshua Hancey, M.B.A.: A device that lifts and pulls solar modules up a ladder to workers on the roof so that workers do not need to manually lift the 45-pound modules up a ladder. The innovation allows the ladder to stay in its normal position, saving time and money.
- Corene Jackson: Dry Ice Block Loading Project combats safety, productivity and ergonomic challenges using a combination of off-the-shelf components and custom-designed items. By shifting the physical burden from the operator to the equipment, it eliminates hazards as well as contusion and laceration risks.
