ConsenSys partners with Harvard & Levi Strauss to bring Ethereum to the workplace

Today Reuters is reporting that ConsenSys, an Ethereum based development team, will be teaming up with both Harvard University and iconic denim manufacturer Levi Strauss & Co. in an effort to bring Ethereum based technology into the workplace, with the emphasis being on improving employee health and safety.

The way the endeavor will work is that 3 different Levi factories in Mexico will have an annual survey given to employees in which they will discuss the safety issues going on in the work site. The survey has been developed by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

The results will be recorded to the Ethereum blockchain so that the system will be tamper-proof and the data will be accessible anywhere in the world. The hope is that this data can be used to continually evolve safety protocols in the plants while saving money on audits, inspections and the staff that comes with that.
