How we used AI to make mining safer

What can’t AI do? is an iOS-based health & safety solution that uses state of the art computer vision to ensure PPE compliance in critical industries. It encourages, monitors, and enforces compliance with health & safety PPE regulations. Greeter was implemented in a mining site, and led to:

– Reduction in PPE non-compliance by 50%+
– Improved workplace safety culture

Some challenges included: 

– Developing the detection model
– Accounting for a large amount of PPE variety (colours, shapes, sizes, etc.)
– Accounting for non-PPE clothing that may interfere with the detection model (i.e., scarves)

This automated monitoring software allowed employees to be more productive and develop better PPE habits.

So, can AI make mining safer? Yes it can.
