The Lloyd’s Register Safety Accelerator will bring together technology companies and industry to test innovative digital solutions to critical safety and risk challenges.
The Lloyd’s Register Safety Accelerator is a new initiative aiming to remove barriers preventing industry uptake of cutting-edge safety and risk solutions. Lloyd’s Register Foundation — a charitable foundation helping to protect life and property by supporting engineering-related education, public engagement and the application of research — will provide funding for the programme. Through their support of the Accelerator, LR and the Foundation are working together for a safer world.
The Lloyd’s Register Safety Accelerator will work with LR clients and key industry players to identify areas of operation with the most significant challenges to safety and risk. Technology businesses seeking an application for existing digital solutions will be invited to apply for funding to trial these products in an industrial environment, through the accelerator collaborators. By providing the opportunity for industry partners to be early adopters of innovation without the associated financial risk, and also offering technology companies both funding and a route to market, the Lloyd’s Register Safety Accelerator will address issues acting as a barrier to improved industrial operation.
Human safety on-board will be one of the first safety challenge themes; applications addressing this challenge area will open in Summer 2018.
