5 Ways to Transform Worker Safety with Artificial Intelligence

AIRED ON: January 18, 2023

Webinar Summary

Worldwide, there are around 340 million occupational accidents annually. Overexertion, slips, trips, falls, and contact with objects and equipment are the highest causes of workplace injury, accounting for the majority of all non-fatal injuries at work. Ironically, despite being called an accident, these are preventable.

Given human constraints and limitations, our systems are more suitable for stopping accidents. However, there is little to no effective change after an accident because of the need for more information and the difficulty of root cause analysis. Computer vision systems, designed to ease mental pressures and refine operations, can significantly reduce accidents and improve compliance.

SparkCognition’s Jon Haslanger explains how organizations apply artificial intelligence (AI) to predict and prevent accidents and near misses, improving worker safety, productivity, and satisfaction. You’ll discover how to deploy technology in days, not months, to provide real-time actionable insights, and reduce overall costs.
