Guidance on Implementing New Technologies


The introduction of new technology into an organisation is not a novel problem; however, what may be novel is the low cost and maturity (as well as their everyday use in the non-work environment) of such an array of technologies that have the potential to significantly alter the way organisations operate. Whilst, arguably, the energy industry has been slower to introduce new technology than other sectors, it is likely that the next five to 10 years will see more and more usage of technologies such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), touch screen tablets, tracking devices and electronic permit-to-work systems. Whilst these (and other) technologies are not necessarily 'new', in the context of this publication they should be considered new if they are new to the reader’s workplace.
