Al is no substitute for competence in Health & Safety.None of us are strangers to the transformative power of artificial intelligence and the recent surge in this area such as Chat GPT.

From redefining how we do business to shaping the future of work, Al has cemented its place as an integral part of our modern world and something we at Fiontar Group have embraced.

However, with great power comes great responsibility.

While Al holds immense potential for improving efficiency and productivity, it’s equally essential to be aware of the challenges it poses when not managed correctly, especially within the Health& Safety industry.

🤖 👷‍♀️ Al algorithms learn from data and if the data fed into these systems is biased, unbalanced,or poor quality, the output may lead to some questionable decisions.

This can be a considerable risk, particularly in safety-critical sectors where mistakes could leadto substantial damages or even loss of lives. Blindly relying on Al without understanding its inner workings or it’s limitations can be very dangerous.

In the realm of safety, risk assessment and decision-making should not be exclusivelydependent on Al, but should also incorporate human judgment, particularly of those who have an in-depth understanding of the industry.

🧠 💡 The correct competence is key.

We need individuals who understand not just the technology, but also its implementationwithin the given industry.

It’s not enough to just develop or use Al; we need people who can ensure its safe, ethical, and effective application.

In short, Al is undoubtedly a game-changer for safety, but let’s not forget the importance of human oversight and the need for safety experts who can bridge the gap between thepossibilities of Al and real-world safety considerations.#AI #SafetyFirst #HumanInLoop #ResponsibleAl
