White paper: Predictive Analytics in Workplace Safety: Four Safety Truths that Reduce Workplace Injuries
Predictive Solutions Corporation, an Industrial Scientific company, has released a white paper, “Predictive Analytics in Workplace Safety: Four Safety Truths that Reduce Workplace Injuries.”
The white paper summarizes pioneering research conducted by teams from Predictive Solutions and Carnegie Mellon University in the development of powerful safety analytics and prediction models. The same CMU team helped develop the Watson supercomputer that originally gained fame by beating the top “Jeopardy” game show champions, and is now being used to help doctors make better medical diagnoses. Identified in the white paper are actionable insights from the research distilled down to four truths about safety observation and inspection data that form the basis of workplace injury prevention activities.
The paper makes a case for why safety leading indicators, rather than lagging indicators, should be used as the drivers of workplace injury prevention programs.
