Over the past five years Scott has been partnering with large organisations and Workers’ Compensation insurance brokers and safety consultants to reduce the costs associated with workplace injury using wearable technology and data analytics.
In 2019 his company, Preventure, launched their IoT based workplace injury prevention product, and has since expanded to the USA through support from Silicon Valley investors.
