Artificial intelligence for workplace risk assessments
Manual material handling, work postures, and repetitive motion are all leading causes of workplace injury, resulting in setbacks for employees and more work for employers. These injuries, and the workers' compensation claims that could follow, may be avoided through detection, analysis and identifying the right solutions to put in place.
Ergo Insight AI provides insights on workplace safety through technology. Developed by professional ergonomists, Ergo Insight software combines machine learning and artificial intelligence to recognize joint movements and record movement, distance and frequency data to quickly create AI-supported risk assessments.
Backed by a team of artificial intelligence experts and software engineers, Ergo Insight uses their blend of technology and ergonomics to help assess workplace injury risks. At Hanover Risk Solutions, our consultants leverage Ergo Insight to characterize risks and provide you with actionable recommendations.
How Ergo Insight AI works
Ergo Insight’s technology provides evaluations of the risk associated with a workers’ activities and records how a worker moves using a smartphone and AI software. In minutes, the software creates dynamic assessments that provide insights for improving working conditions.
- Proprietary whole body risk assessment
- National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) lifting equation
- Physical demands analysis
- Psycho-physical tables
The analysis captures motions, repetitions, posture and forces and identities the risk of the job, including tasks that may be of concern.
The benefits of technological insights for workplace safety
With a comprehensive view of potential hazards and ways to increase the safety of the workplace, Ergo Insight has many advantages.
- Our Risk Solutions consultants integrate the data gathered to provide recommendations on changes that can be implemented to help reduce risks for worker injuries.
- The insights can be shared with employees performing similar tasks and can help engage with staff on safe work practices to improve ergonomics.
- The changes a worker could make to the way they perform a task can help them stay ahead of injury.
Not only can these insights help to reduce risk and create efficiencies, but they can save valuable time and money with less workplace injuries and workers’ compensation claims.
