AI and worker safety: How manufacturers can use AI to improve worker protection
AI can be used to tackle many hazardous workplace elements. By streamlining processes, the technology can limit employee exposure to noisy environments, dangerous tasks and unwieldy machines.
Many of AI’s benefits in manufacturing are focused on replacing the causes of the most common workplace accidents. According to OSHA, these include \”musculoskeletal injuries, mostly from lifting and lowering with excessive force, and being hit by powered industrial vehicles and other materials-handling equipment.\”
The most hazardous manufacturing tasks will benefit most from reducing these points of risk.
