Salman Chaudhary, CEO at EmpiricAI, explained: “EPCL has demonstrated that they place the safety of its staff and speedy return to business for its customers above all else. The AI-powered insights, analytics and recommendations help safeguard their workforce while maintaining maximum productivity.”

“It is the advanced analytics capability, combined with computer vision, that makes WSA such a powerful management tool. Usability features include KPI dashboard visibility via any authorised PC or tablet, providing notifications and alerts, along with footfall and safety violation as well as heatmaps that identify density of personnel in a specific area.”

Jahangir Piracha, CEO at EPCL added: “WorkSafe Analytics has proven to be a very effective tool for EPCL. A useful feature of WSA is that it provides us with high quality pictorial evidence of infringements, which is a very effective method to reinforce COVID guidelines and carry out targeted training to avoid future lapses and to ultimately keep our workforce safe.”
