In today's industrial landscape, OSHA programs are the guardians of workplace well-being, safeguarding employees, and productivity. Yet, these programs are often perceived as opaque cost avoidance strategies, especially because quantifying their return on investment (ROI) is daunting. Still, the direct cost of an average injury is $42,000, with indirect costs ranging from 2-10 times the direct cost, or $80,000-$420,000. 

Enter Visual AI, the technology to clarify cloudy value measurements and KPIs. Visual AI uses an organization’s existing cameras to analyze video feeds in real-time, identifying everything from a near miss and a man down to a trip hazard or unexpected fire-causing spark. In turn, these insights can be used to measure the effectiveness of new HSE initiatives and programs. 

Visual AI contributes to the bottom line with:  

  • Proactive Incident Prevention: Visual AI can identify potential hazards, near misses, and unsafe conditions before accidents occur.  
  • Enhanced Safety Compliance: By monitoring work areas and operations, visual AI can ensure compliance with safety regulations, standards, and protocols.  
  • Real-Time Notification: Ensure key stakeholders are alerted when an incident occurs, providing them with actionable details, including date, time, location, and a visual snippet. 
  • Augmented Best PracticesVisual AI works 24/7 and can observe 100s of video feeds and 1000s frames per second to supplement existing HSE measures and personnel.  

Furthermore, we will delve into the broader implications of Visual AI, exploring how it enhances ROI across various parts of industrial operations. 

Join us for an enlightening session where we will demystify Visual AI, offering practical insights to decode the details of HSE ROI measurement. Visual AI is poised to illuminate the path toward improved HSE strategies.
