VelocityEHS® Industrial Ergonomics Solution Harnesses AI
CHICAGO, April 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SpeedEHSthe global leader in cloud-based software for environment, health, safety (EHS) and environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG), announced the latest additions to the Accelerate platform, including a long-awaited new feature, Active Causes & Controls, to its award-winning Industrial ergonomics solution. Rooted in ActiveEHS® – the proprietary VelocityEHS methodology that leverages AI and machine learning to help non-experts produce expert-level results – this enhancement ushers in a new era in the prevention of musculoskeletal disorders (TMS).
Designed, engineered, and integrated with the expertise of an unparalleled group of board-certified ergonomists, the Active Causes and Controls feature powered by ActiveEHS helps organizations reduce training time, maintain process consistency between sites and focus on implementing changes that maximize business results. Starting with the industry‘s best sensorless motion capture technology, which performs ergonomic assessments faster, easier and more accurately than any human, the solution then guides users through suggested root causes and work improvement checks. Recommendations are based on artificial intelligence and machine learning powered by data collected from hundreds of global client companies and millions of MSD risk data points.
The result is an unprecedented opportunity to prevent MSD risks, reduce overall injury costs, increase productivity and provide employees with quality of life improvements in the workplace.
“These are exciting times for anyone who cares about EHS and ESG,” said John Damgaard, CEO of VelocityEHS. “While it’s true, the job of a senior manager or EHS professional has never been more difficult and complex; it’s also true that leaders have never had this kind of advanced, highly usable, and easy-to-deploy technology at their fingertips. Ergonomics is just the beginning; ActiveEHS will transform the way we think about health, safety and sustainability in the future. This is the key to moving from a reactive mindset of documentation and compliance to a proactive cycle of continuous improvement of prediction, intervention and results.
MSDs are a major burden for workers and a huge cost for employers. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, for U.S. private sector employers alone, MDS results in more than 300,000 days lost from work and, according to OSHA, is responsible for $20 billion each year in compensation claims. workers.
Also announced today: new training and learning content, enhancements to automated utility data management, and improved workflows for the work control solution.
The VelocityEHS security solution, which includes strong training and learning capabilities, is undergoing a major expansion of its online training content library. To enable companies to better fulfill their training responsibilities, the library of training content is growing from approximately 100 courses to more than 750. They will be available in several languages, including more than 300 courses in Spanish. The new content will include micro-learning modules, which have grown in popularity in recent years as workers prefer shorter, easy-to-digest training sessions. This translates to less screen time for workers, while employers report better engagement and overall material retention.
The VelocityEHS climate solution continues to capitalize on the VelocityEHS partnership with Urjanet – the engine behind recently announced automated utility data management capabilities. Now, in addition to saving time and reducing the cost of collecting utility data, users can automatically transfer their energy, gas and water usage data into the VelocityEHS climate solution for Perform GHG calculations and Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions reporting without any manual effort.
