Safety & Health Practitioner quoted findings from our our recent research study and the subsequent white paper: Overcoming the barriers of PPE compliance with the use of artificial intelligence

“The report by the AI company Cortexica claims the vast majority (84%) of businesses operating in a high-risk environment lost money from injuries due to PPE non-compliance in the last year.

According to the research, almost a third (30%) of those businesses lost more than £250,000 and 5% lost more than £1m. It also found that around 29% of workplace injuries last year in companies operating in high-risk environments could have been prevented through the proper use of PPE.”
