Keeping your workplace safe is a full-time job in its own right. The problem is that you’ve got a full-time job already and staff to keep track of on top of it.
This is where AI has the power to change the landscape of workplaces like yours. AI workplace safety isn’t a futuristic idea – it’s right around the corner. Here’s how AI can make your workplace stronger.
There are three categories of AI:
Right now, we have access to ANI, though AGI is theoretically around the corner. To understand how the available AI can help stop accidents, you have to understand why accidents occur.
Safety-related accidents can result from any number of random accidents and bad luck, but it’s most often the result of:
These can be boiled down into two basic categories: internal and external factors.
While you can’t control your workers’ internal lives, you can control for external factors (and limit the fallout of internal factors).
The Internet of Things (IoT) excels at collecting data. It does this through a series of interconnected sensors and devices. Taken together, these sensors can monitor everything from the location of humans to how equipment is working.
This makes it easy to monitor potentially hazardous environments with far greater efficiency than a human could.
The gap to bridge is analyzing that data quickly and effectively. This is where AI can help. IoT can collect data and ANI can analyze it in real time. This doesn’t need to be a complex procedure – as long as the AI has a set of parameters to follow, it can alert you when you’re outside those safe parameters.
In the future, more advanced AI can go one step further. Instead of just recognizing hazards as they happen in real time, AIs can help predict disasters before they happen.
Artificial intelligence has come a long way since the first computers. The AI programs of today can already contribute in huge ways to workplace safety. If your team is ready to invest in AI workplace safety, you’re investing in a safer future for your workers.
We know that if you want to stay on top of your biggest safety challenges, you have to be prepared to innovate. You have to come up with novel solutions to stay one step ahead of evolving safety issues.
