Monitoring compliance with occupational safety regulations (OSR) is a serious issue that affects the health and safety of workers, as well as the financial performance of organizations.
Fatal workplace incidents have serious consequences for employers, society, and the economy as a whole. They result in the loss of talented and experienced employees, increased medical expenses and compensation costs, reduced productivity and competitiveness of companies, and negative impacts on public health and welfare.
Statistics from European and American countries show significant losses associated with non-compliance with safety regulations and improper use of PPE. These losses are estimated in billions of euros and dollars and include loss of work time, medical expenses, insurance compensation, and other economic losses.
In 2021, EU-OSHA registered approximately 2.5 million occupational accidents in the European Union, and OSHA registered 2.8 million occupational accidents in the United States.
The causes of workplace accidents can be diverse, including non-compliance with safety regulations, improper use of PPE, lack of training and skills among workers, insufficient compliance with procedures and instructions, and lack of control and punishment for workplace violations.
DEKI calls on employers, employees, governments, unions, and other stakeholders to take measures to reduce workplace accidents and improve occupational safety. DEKI can support critical object inspections by providing advanced real-time #ai recognition features for #ppe. Employee #safety is crucial!
