Zekelman Industries and Everguard.ai are joining efforts to use artificial intelligence (AI) and sensor fusion to increase safety measures at the steel manufacturer’s facilities. The companies have announced an agreement to bring Everguard’s Sentri360™ platform to Zekelman’s Atlas Tube facility in Blytheville, Arkansas, which will create a paradigm shift from a reactive to a proactive approach to preventing workplace injuries and accidents.
Advancements in the autonomous vehicle industry to overcome the faults of human error are changing how we think about safety not only on the road but also in other sectors.
"We have built a proxy for autonomous vehicles systems and dropped it into the workplace... to prevent an accident and not just report on it." Sandeep Pandya, Everguard.ai chief executive officer.
"AI has the potential to reduce transmission, ensure the health and safety of staff members, and detect - and contain- cluster outbreaks before they start…" Mark Bula, Everguard chief strategy officer.
