Honeywell forms new industrial safety business unit

Honeywell has announced the formation of Honeywell Industrial Safety, part of Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions and comprised of Honeywell’s safety products businesses: Honeywell Safety Products, Honeywell Analytics, Honeywell Specialty Safety and City Technology. The new business unit has been brought together to offer organisations the connected safety solutions and real-time intelligence they need to respond to safety threats, manage risk to their business and improve productivity.

“Many organisations and their workers worldwide already depend on Honeywell products to help keep them and their business safe from risk. However, as operations become increasingly complex, hazardous and geographically dispersed, they are also looking for real-time visibility of what is happening across their sites,” said Sean Clay, vice president and general manager, Honeywell Industrial Safety EMEA. “By bringing the expertise of Honeywell’s safety products businesses together, Honeywell Industrial Safety can support these needs with a connected approach to safety.

The company is already exploring new ways of integrating sensors, PPE, software applications and databases to create an accurate, real-time picture of plant-wide safety which it says will empower people to respond quickly and confidently to workplace threats, as well as offer business gains in productivity, efficiency and profitability.

As Vice President/General Manager of Honeywell Industrial Safety EMEA, Sean leads the business in providing Gas Detection and Worker Safety solutions which protect the worker, the facility and the environment and ensure its clients can operate effective and efficient operations. Sean believes that the future of Safety lies in Connected Safety Solutions, integrating hardware, software and services to create a safety eco-system that delivers enhanced safety and productivity for the customer.

Previously Sean served as Vice President/General Manager, Honeywell Life Safety Sensors, which developed and manufactured fire and gas sensing technologies to protect people, property and assets. Sean also spent seven years as Global Sales Director for Honeywell Life Safety Sensors & Devices.
