Insurance Company Uses Artificial Intelligence to Promote Worker Safety

Artificial intelligence will offer ergonomic assessments to employers.

Travelers Insurance Companies has started using artificial intelligence to administer ergonomic assessments, according to Insurance Journal.

The company claims to be the first of its kind to provide this kind of service, which combines AI technology and ergonomic research to identify potential risk factors based on a video of an employee completing a task. The software produces a report based on the video, then an employee from Travelers develops an alternative, safer plan for the worker to follow.

These ergonomic assessments are geared to enhance worker safety and reduce the number of workplace injuries.

AI can reduce the time spent assessing problems “from days to hours, enabling our specialists to focus their attention on developing tailored workplace improvements for our customers,” said Marty Henry, senior vice president of Risk Control at Travelers.

Taking ergonomic precautions in the workplace can prevent the development of health issues like musculoskeletal disorders in workers.
