As organisations continue to embrace digital transformation, they are turning to advanced technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) to revolutionise their processes and enhance safety measures. The integration of AI in the field of Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) analytics marks a significant shift in risk management, inspiring a new era of innovation and progress.
The Rise of AI in HSE Analytics:
AI has brought about a positive transformation in the field of HSE analytics by offering unparalleled capabilities to process and analyse vast datasets. It has become an indispensable tool in identifying patterns, trends, and potential risks within the data, which helps organisations make informed decisions and mitigate risks effectively. The shift towards AI technology is a constructive step towards achieving higher safety standards and enhancing the overall performance of organisations.
AI Integration and COMET
The incorporation of AI within COMET impacts both the core product and the generation of invaluable insights through our AI-driven platform COMET Signals.
> AI in our Core Product: Streamlining Investigation Processes
AI is transforming the way Safety Management and EHS Systems operate, and COMET is leading the way. Through the use of open AI technology, COMET has made investigation and analysis processes more efficient and accurate. These enhancements enable our users to easily recreate investigations from incident reports, help with executive summaries, help with investigation details, and even help map out timelines. By shouldering time-intensive tasks, AI empowers users to focus on what’s important. This results in better outcomes that are both rigorous and proportionate in less time than ever before.
> COMET Signals: Discovering Insights from Unstructured Data
Managing the vast amounts of unstructured data within an organisation can be challenging. Fortunately, COMET Signals, our AI-powered solution, addresses this challenge by analysing and generating insights from complex data sources. COMET Signals evolved as a result of a two-year intensive R&D process with six valued global COMET clients, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and our partners at Lloyd's Register to create the first AI Assisted Analytics platform that could deliver root causation.
Deployed across diverse industries such as energy, power generation, rail, construction, marine, ports, and more. COMET Signals utilises embedded AI models to offer critical Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) analytics, such as root causation, topic trends, hazards, etc. These analytics offer a comprehensive view of data from various perspectives, empowering businesses to make informed decisions and enhance overall safety and efficiency. This underscores the remarkable versatility of AI, extracting valuable insights beyond the scope of human analysis and fostering innovation and progress in various fields.
Adopting COMET’s solutions brings many benefits for organisations. It contributes to an improvement in safety performance, a decrease in incidents and accidents, and a more efficient allocation of resources. These benefits go beyond mere cost savings, creating a framework that encourages proactive risk management and promotes a culture of safety and efficiency within any organisation.
COMET in the Spotlight:
COMET was referenced in the comprehensive Verdantix report, "Strategic Focus: AI And The Revolution Of EHS Compliance." Featured in various EHS use cases of AI categories, COMET showcases its prowess in:
- Incident Analysis:
Autonomously allocating the severity of EHS incidents based on categorisations from government safety agencies such as the HSE or OSHA.
- Contributing Factor Analysis:
Automated identification of root causes or factors contributing to events.
- Incident Timeline Creation:
Applying Generative AI models to submitted event data to build a visual timeline of events for incident analysis.
- Incident Summary:
Automatically producing an executive summary of an event based on all submitted event data.
- Data Aggregation:
Streamlining EHS dataset aggregation through identifying and mapping common fields and attributes.
Collaboration and Expectations:
As stated in the Strategic Focus: AI And The Revolution Of EHS Compliance, Verdantix report: “AI projects, particularly novel ones, demand extensive vendor-buyer collaboration. At the start of projects, firms should expect to undergo a discovery phase to establish use case feasibility and required data inputs and investigate the quality and quantity of their data. If the firm does not meet the minimum data requirements, technology vendors or service providers can help to establish a data improvement plan – the benefits of which extend far beyond enhanced AI output. Successful AI projects require not only budget, dedicated internal resources, stakeholder buy-in and the right data structures but also reasonable project expectations. All project sponsors and stakeholders should enter the project with an understanding that results and accuracy take time. AI vendors COMET and Protex AI describe ideal clients as having a willingness to invest resources and work collaboratively.”
COMET was also referenced in the latest 'Market Insight: 10 Predictions For EHS Technology In 2024 And Beyond' report by Verdantix!
On their 8th prediction, Verdantix recognised that the value proposition for the application of AI in EHS will become clearer. "AI is being embedded within a range of solution types, spanning EHS management platforms, hardware devices (robotics) and even AI-focused EHS platforms, such as those offered by COMET, ehsAI, GOARC, Saifety.ai, Serenity and Urbint. Demand at a market level is increasing, with 42% of 301 surveyed firms wishing to increase their usage of, or starting to pilot, AI for EHS in 2024. As adoption increases and use cases grow, the value of AI to EHS will become clearer and buyer conversation will evolve from investigating AI through pilots to embedding it in workflows."
“As the digital landscape evolves, the HSE field is witnessing a transformation driven by the accelerating integration of Artificial Intelligence. Complexities of Health, Safety, and Environmental management, the increasing importance of AI, exemplified by solutions like COMET as mentioned in the report, emerges as a transformative force. AI has the potential to streamline processes, enhances predictive capabilities, and empowers organisations to achieve new heights in safety and compliance." Chris Sayers, Senior Analyst at Verdantix
