A partnership with a noble purpose
The architecture, engineering, and construction sector, and the oil and gas sector are among the most important and promising sectors in addition to being among the most sensitive sectors in terms of time, as safety concerns arise throughout the supply chain for these sectors. The nature of work makes those sectors vulnerable to deaths in the workplace, as the construction sector is considered one of the most dangerous work sectors, since it witnesses the highest number of deaths during work. According to the safety report published by the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP), the total injury rates recorded in the sector increased by 10% in 2021 compared to 2020.
Since its inception, viAct has been striving to make workplaces safer, more efficient, and more sustainable. viAct has engaged in rigorous and continuous research and development to advance and improve its scenario-based artificial intelligence technologies to provide smart and innovative solutions that leverage advanced video analysis capabilities to meet various industry safety needs in several sectors such as construction, oil, and gas. Among the company’s solutions that take advantage of the capabilities of artificial intelligence to analyze videos in the oil and gas sector and the architecture, engineering, and construction sector, with the goal of enhancing safety and productivity in these sectors
