Worksite Safety Analytic from Robotic Assistance Devices

July 20, 2023
The new AI analytic detects the presence, and non-presence of personal protective equipment (PPE).

Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., (the “Company”) (OTCPK:AITX), a global leader in AI-driven security and productivity solutions along with its wholly owned subsidiary, Robotic Assistance Devices, Inc. (RAD), today announced a new analytic to their growing AI-based asset library. This new AI analytic detects the presence, and non-presence of personal protective equipment (PPE).

A demonstration is now available featuring streaming video captured by RAD ROSA™ devices autonomously detecting the presence of PPE in its field of view. View the demonstration video by clicking this link.

“We created this analytic in response to client requests,” said Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX and RAD. “Organizations and persons required to follow OSHA regulations often run afoul of those requirements due to the difficulty of enforcing basic use of PPE. This has resulted in escalating compliance fines as well as often unnecessary injury to workers.

Construction sites and industrial factories are the target market for this analytic. Since our ROSS solution can apply this to existing cameras, much like our firearm detection analytic, we expect clients to use a combination of existing cameras and RAD devices to provide employee PPE protection all the while we run other appropriate analytics for security. It’s quite exciting to us.”

OSHA regulations require employers to provide PPE to each employee, depending on their job duties and position. PPE typically consists of gear worn to reduce the risk of severe workplace injuries and illnesses resulting from exposure to various hazards. Among the typical PPE used in workplaces are safety hard hats and protective clothing such as high visibility vests. OSHA suggests that a workplace’s PPE program be periodically reviewed, updated, and evaluated.

Reinharz added, “With this PPE detection and our proven loitering and trespassing analytics, we’re about to roll out a targeted penetration into the U.S. construction industry with our safety and security solutions. There are over 750,000 construction employers needing to ensure the safety of over 7.5 million employees. We’d be more than happy to help them.”

The new advanced AI feature will be available for activation upon request on all RAD security device platforms including ROSS, RAD’s software-based video management application. PPE detection functionality will be included at no additional charge for ROSA and RIO deployments.
