Edge AI Automates Health and Safety Monitoring for Organizations

H&S-blogWe’re proud to announce the availability of our new Lightning™ Health & Safety Solutions suite to improve workplace safety overall and prevent and control the spread of contagious illnesses as employees begin to return to work amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Currently, many industrial and non-industrial organizations, such as factories, warehouses, hospitals, retail stores, and education or government institutions, uphold employee health and safety processes through supervisors and staff observations or posted reminders. As the pandemic continues to shed light on the need for improved health and safety measures in the workplace, businesses are challenged to meet significantly elevated health and safety requirements for staff, including social distancing or personal protective equipment (PPE)protection monitoring, at-scale. 

Lightning Health & Safety Solutions are out-of-the-box packages of FogHorn’s award-winning Lightning Edge AI platform, preconfigured with use case-specific machine learning models and visualization dashboards. Leveraging streaming video analytics and sensor fusion, the platform automates monitoring, derives real-time insights, and generates alerts when policy violations occur, or unsafe health conditions are detected. 

According to Neil Shah, Vice President of Research at Counterpoint Research: “FogHorn’s AI capabilities transform live streams from video cameras or other sensor-filled endpoints into highly automated real-time alerts and actionable insights. The solution seamlessly automates the entire process for health, safety, and hazard detection, ensuring the workforces’ well-being.”

The product suite includes a range of solutions that can be used individually or together to create a comprehensive system, including:

  • Health Monitoring: elevated temperature detection, cough detection, hand washing monitoring, social distancing monitoring, and mask / facial covering detection
  • Safety Monitoring: personal protective equipment, including hard hats, footwear, eyewear, vests, and boots
  • Hazard Detection: custom solution engagements are also available including crane and falling debris warnings, leak detection and spill hazards

An enterprise edition of the solution suite is also available and can include further customizations, data science, and integrations with customer’s existing IT systems, video management software, and access control systems.
