  • CobraVision Safety
    CobraVision Safety uses worksite trailers with integrated cameras to identify personal protection equipment (PPE) compliance like missing hard hats, vests and eyewear....

  • 1. Worksite Monitoring Via Cameras
    Jobsite cameras enabled with AI allow for immediate notification of AI events, but they also have another benefit—
    they record and store what happens on the job ... every day. Any time a contractor or employee wants to view what
    happened, it’s simply a matter of reviewing the video replay to resolve conflicts about the root cause of the issue.

    2. Automatic Identification of Safety Fundamentals
    Fundamentals include wearing a hard hat, vest or safety glasses, but interestingly, lack of safety glasses is in the top ten safety incidents according to OSHA. So is this a fundamental or a hard requirement that needs immediate notification to a construction supervisor? Regardless of how your utility classifies or remediates safety fundamentals, enabling off-the-shelf cameras with AI enables identification of these issues.

    3. Establish Fundamental Safety, Then Advance
    Establishing fundamentals is always a first step to establishing a safety culture. Once this foundation is laid, then
    moving to advanced safety measures is a progression that leads to long-term success.
    • No dig. Monitoring no-dig zones and preventing live lines from being cut or punctured can prevent serious injury
    or damage to property.
    • Falls. Unclipping a line, even momentarily, puts workers at risk of a fall. Monitoring this type of activity and
    informing workers of safety practices is another good example of establishing a safety culture. If a fall has occurred,
    identifying and alerting medical personnel in real-time can provide critical response information.
    • Collision avoidance. Using AI to identify close calls or prevent collisions will assist companies in preventing
    injuries or damage to property. This can provide information on trends and inform safety personnel of potential
    “safety hotspots” where additional monitoring or training may be required.

    Empower Additional Safety Observation Sources
    It’s not just AI that can observe safety incidents; employees and contractors are also key components to a safety
    culture. Enabling safety walks with technology provides an easy method for submitting feedback about good and
    bad safety behaviors.
    Whether it’s AI or a manual observation, a real-time safety alert can be triggered, providing an immediate notification
    to the job site via an alarm (light, noise, vibration). Depending on the seriousness of the safety observation, further
    action can be taken in the form of technology alerts (e-mail, text or website notifications).

    Leverage Actionable Data Across the Business and Vendor Network
    Now that safety incidents have been detected, leveraging the output to improve your safety culture is a logical
    outcome. Reporting across vendors, job sites, safety incident type or job type becomes actionable data to inform
    management about the relative safety of their personnel or contractors.
    Ideally this can be used to collaboratively work with safety inspectors, construction managers and work crews to
    improve processes that lead to reduced safety incidents.

  • CobraVision Inspections
    CobraVision's artificial intelligence can analyze large datasets of LiDAR, video or imagery to identify specific anomalies across the utility transmission & distribution infrastructure.

  • Artificial intelligence is a Special Power

    Common maintenance items lend themselves well to utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically identify and classify anomalies. Since computers never get tired or bored, they are more effective at identifying the issue, but more importantly, they reduce the time from issue identification to the ultimate fix.

    A great example of this in action is woodpecker holes. AI can automatically identify a woodpecker hole vs. a bolt, but also the size and location of the hole, resulting in an assessment of the risk profile to the structure. Don’t have woodpecker holes as an issue? Imagine any common maintenance item like the ones mentioned above and it can be detected by AI.

    The Benefits of Employing AI

    • Applying a consistent standard across all anomalies improves the

    accuracy of issue identification.

    • Visualizing work creates a streamlined resource deployment process.

    • Provides decision-makers with the ability to buy-down risk based on

    accurate and timely data of the condition of their fixed assets.

    • Reduces customer interruptions for repairs that may not be needed.

    • Crews performing inspections have a reduced exposure to safety

    hazards while performing inspections work.

    • By improving the efficiency of identifying anomalies and deploying

    crews, inspections can be done more frequently, leading to a more

    reliable and safer network.
