3 Ways AI can Revolutionize Safety and Security in the Construction Industry

Imagine if CCTV cameras could identify problems happening on site as they happen

Construction is the sixth deadliest occupation in the United States. This statistic may not surprise you, yet we seem to be ignoring safety.

Why?

Well it turns out that artificial intelligence can reduce workplace injuries by as much as 50%. In fact, AI has been shown to significantly reduce workplace injuries and fatalities in construction sites around the world.

Here are 3 ways artificial intelligence revolutionizes safety:


1) Monitoring dangerous situations and potential risks with AI & Computer Vision analytics

Automatically process billions of variables and dependencies to serve up precise answers in a digital twin like simulated intelligence platform.

2) Tracking dangerous tools & power tool maintenance lifecycles

The sensors and edge computing track how often workers use potentially risky tools like power saws or jackhammers, providing a window into their patterns of behavior and suggesting possible new strategies for preventing accidents and fatalities.

3) Automated visual inspections

Helps scheduling & automating inspections and identifying which areas need repairs first by utilizing smart phones, edge AI devices, exit CCTV systems & drones.

Computer vision & AI have shown to significantly reduce workplace fatalities around construction sites all over the world! Computer vision makes sure your tools are safe at home before they’re brought on site; AI powered autonomous vehicles monitor traffic conditions so unsafe routes don’t needlessly injure or kill anyone; automated hiring systems help keep our workforces diverse while also reducing bias.

Construction sites are dangerous places. It’s not uncommon for workers to be injured or killed on the job and that puts a huge burden on construction companies’ bottom lines as well as society at large. Fortunately, computer vision has proven itself capable of significantly reducing workplace fatalities by making sure all tools are safe before they’re brought onto site, AI powered autonomous vehicles monitor traffic conditions so unsafe routes don’t needlessly injure anyone and automated hiring systems help keep our workforces diverse.
