COMPANY OVERVIEW

Since 2013, our founding mission at StrongArm Technologies has been and remains to keep the world’s Industrial Athletes™ proud, protected and productive. We achieve this through our pioneering FUSE safety wearables and the actionable ergonomic data they provide to individuals and management across numerous job types, industries and operating environments. 

The Industrial Athlete™ is the beating heart of everything we represent and strive for here at StrongArm - the essential, frontline workers of the world who put their bodies on the line to perform a critical job function that positively impacts lives beyond their own. But that responsibility doesn’t come without its consequences. Far too often, preventable workplace injuries lead to lost shifts, missed paychecks and threatened livelihoods. That, to us, is unacceptable. 

In order to most effectively prevent injuries in a given operational environment, we work closely with each client across many dedicated and leading-edge teams, including client services, data and engineering, IT security and others. Each safety program is tailored to the needs of the workers on the ground and the managers who oversee them, including what types of safety wearables and attachment options will suit them best, and the look and cadence of the safety reports that we’ll provide. The result is an actionable and scalable safety solution that seamlessly becomes part of a facility’s daily routine and is proven to prevent workplace injuries by as much as 64% across hundreds or thousands of Industrial Athletes.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We run a relatively flat organization which is our key to driving true innovation. We chase the fastest path to insight not the fastest path to a solution. In order for that to work, everyone needs to check their egos at the door, everyone needs to be on the same page and everyone owns their work. Our cultural values reflect those principles.
