Do you long for calculators, mechanical pencils, engineering pads, and daily planners? Or do you embrace notebook computers, cell phones, personal handheld devices, and automated scheduling software? As an environment, health, and safety (EH&S) professional, do you find technology fast and easy to use, or must you refer to a manual merely to log on to your PC?
Technology has undoubtedly changed our lives. But people do not always openly embrace new technology, even when it works flawlessly. They may be intimidated by new technology or unwilling to change their ways. To be successful, technology must be intuitive and easy to use; otherwise, it will sit on a shelf gathering dust.
