Artificial Intelligence Future: How AI is transforming EHS compliance?
What is AI?
While many people are familiar with the term “artificial intelligence”, they may not fully understand what it entails or how it works. Artificial intelligence is a technology that allows computers to act in ways normally associated with human intelligence. It can be used to solve problems, make decisions, and even learn new things. Artificial intelligence has been around for decades, but it wasn’t until recently that it made its way into companies for use in business operations. AI is being implemented into various aspects of businesses including their HR processes, operations departments like manufacturing line monitoring, and finance departments such as forecasting sales numbers based on past performance data.
Artificial intelligence Future : AI application in EHS
There are many ways in which AI can help improve workplace safety.
- AI can be used to track and analyze data to identify patterns, predict future events, and recommend solutions that could result in fewer injuries or other workplace incidents.
- AI could be used to create virtual simulations of real-life situations and test new policies before they’re implemented.
- AI can be used to monitor employees for signs of fatigue or stress, which may lead them to make mistakes at work (for example, by not being able to react quickly enough when an emergency occurs).
- AI has the potential to automate many of the tasks required to comply with EHS regulations. This can be quite useful in reducing the time and effort that would otherwise be spent on such manual compliance processes, freeing up staff for more important work.
- AI is also useful for monitoring compliance with safety regulations, including those related to employee training or PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). The AI system can track employees’ progress through their training programs and notify supervisors if they are not completing them as expected. If an employee fails a PPE test, their supervisor will receive immediate notification so they may correct the issue before it becomes an issue.
- AI will also monitor workplace conditions such as temperature and humidity levels; this allows employers to quickly identify any changes which could put workers at risk of injury or illness. For example, if a worker becomes ill after entering an area where temperatures are too high or low, this allows them to take appropriate action before more employees become sick – whether that means bringing in air conditioning units or turning off equipment causing excessive heat build up inside its chamber.”
EHS Platforms and Solutions using AI
There are many different platforms available in the market that can be used to help manage and support EHS. Let’s take a look at five prominent platforms using artificial intelligence, future ready for application in EHS.
GOARC is a workplace safety platform that uses AI and machine learning to help businesses reduce risk, increase productivity and enhance quality of life at work. GOARC’s AI and ML capabilities connect the dots between connected workers, equipment, Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and other technologies. The safety platform generates a risk model that includes location, time of day, weather, tools and materials.
GOARC’s Health and Safety event management solution improves processes and systems for a safer workplace, improved efficiency, and business flexibility. Featuring integrated AI-driven analytics in a connected worker environment, the solution optimizes operations, safety strategies, and procedures to better manage health, safety, and environment programs, incidents, and case evidence.

Audit Management solution: Featuring advanced AI-enabled data analysis tools, the solution delivers visualized detailed data related to audits and inspections and reporting and benchmarking across departments, divisions, companies, or safety topics.
Intense Eye is a complete EHS platform powered by cutting edge AI. It helps to identify unsafe acts and conditions instantly using existing cameras within the facilities. The facilities are monitored 24/7, and Intenseye notifies the EHS teams about the unsafe acts and conditions in their facilities, enabling them to take required precautions to eliminate the risks and hazards.
Intenseye works with industries where there is a high risk of injury that are currently including mining, textile & apparel, food & beverage, warehouses, retail, electricity, oil & gas, automotive parts, motor vehicles, chemicals & related products to name a few.
A variety of Core AI features can be activated to detect unsafe acts and conditions in your workplace such as
The PPE detection model can be used to ensure a safe working environment by detecting the use of Helmet, Glove, Apron, Sleeve, Respiratory Protective Equipment, Reflective Vest, and Glasses.
The Area Controls model can be used to ensure working areas in your facility are always safe with various EHS scenarios such as establishing worker minimum and maximums, preventing workers from entering restricted areas, and minimizing occupational exposures through time limits.
The Housekeeping model can be used to reduce the risks of slips, trips, falls and collisions by ensuring that vehicle paths and pedestrian walkways in your facility are always clear and safe.
The Vehicle Controls model can be used to manage your workplace traffic safety by ensuring the safe operation of vehicles at your workplace.
The Behavioral Safety model can be used to avoid the line of fire injuries such as pedestrians in vehicle paths, nonuse of handrails, and the violations of working at heights.
The Pandemic Control Measures model can be used to prevent contagious diseases by ensuring social distancing as well as proper mask use.
Intenseye implementation becomes a force multiplier for safety professionals by accurately gathering data and compiling it into a useable dashboard. The data collected by intenseye allows for targeted safety initiatives in the areas that matter most and contribute for increased business uptime. The Emergency Alerts can be used to get immediate notifications in situations such as when a worker falls on the ground or there is a fire-related emergency.
