In the past year, the number of accidents and deaths from industrial incidents has grown by 30%. A big cause of accidents is the incorrect usage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
Our challenge was to research and develop solutions that stimulate the correct usage of Personal Protective Equipment and reduce the number of incidents on industrial sites. Creating a safer work environment for all staff.
We developed a computer vision tool, Theia, that recognises incorrect use of personal protective equipment at industrial mega-sites.
Developed from human-machine collaboration principles, Theia doesn't replace safety supervisors, but supports them. Together, Theia and safety supervisors enable increased workers' safety at dangerous industrial mega-sites.
Working with DEUS on Project Theia has demonstrated that AI has immense power in supporting our safety experts in identifying dangerous situations. At the end of the day, it's all about getting people home safely to their families, and we are leveraging this technology to make this happen.
