Artificial Intelligence (AI) is transforming every industry, including Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS). Language understanding, image recognition, problem solving, and decision making are all now within the ambit of AI. Significant advancements in AI are driven by increased computational power and data availability, offering businesses advantages like productivity and efficiency.
With these new developments, there are ongoing public debates and ethical concerns surrounding AI, and topics such as privacy, bias, accountability and job displacement are being deliberated upon with organizations stepping up to build regulatory frameworks.
Practical applications of AI chat tools like ChatGPT and Google Bard in daily EHS operations include helping simplify data, write safety reports, create memos, and summarize regulations. Examples of drafting safety protocols for chemical spills and creating realistic scenarios for fire safety drills demonstrate the actual application of AI in EHS compliance today.
Tech companies such as Encamp are incorporating AI to improve efficiency and accuracy in data processing and through future product developments such as SDS digitization.
