Top 5 Actions Every Company Must Take When Applying AI to HSE


2/23/23 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm CST

Event Description

Current health and safety solutions rely on training, procedure compliance, worker behavior and the supervised working environment as the primary means to prevent workplace incidents. These solutions are generally reactive and lack strong preventive controls. This results in nearly 340 million workplace injuries worldwide and costs U.S. businesses more than $250 billion annually. To refine these tactics, environmental, health and safety managers must use reporting that accurately counts the number of unsafe acts and near misses. Visual artificial intelligence allows manufacturers to leverage existing infrastructure and cameras to identify and stop numerous risky behaviors, prevent incidents, and build more robust controls that reduce operational risk. Visual AI reduces the burden on employees and workflows by automating records, alerts and controls. By tracking unsafe acts, EHS managers can better quantify areas of risk and make meaningful changes to their safety procedures and training.

During this webinar, you’ll learn how visual AI disrupts existing safety patterns by detecting, recording and alerting workers before a safety event occurs, as well as the direct and indirect costs of incidents that it can eliminate.

  • Visual AI improves visibility and accountability through reporting and quantifiable results.
  • Address trends and specific EHS problems with reports (time series, worker shifts, specific areas and individual facilities). Use the reports for targeted training programs and controls.
  • Examine the range of returns on investment by tracking the number and types of incidents prevented.
