Detect Technologies has announced a global agreement with Vedanta for deployment of T-Pulse, its artificial intelligence (AI)-based workplace safety software.
Vedanta is among the top producers of commodities including zinc, lead, silver, iron ore, steel, copper, aluminium, and oil and gas. The group engages more than 65,000 employees and contractors, primarily in India, Africa, Ireland and Australia.
Managing health, safety and environment (HSE) for such a diverse and spread-out organisation is a massive challenge, Detect says. Driven by its commitment to GOAL ZERO, Vedanta started exploring AI-based solutions to infuse efficiency into this process. T-Pulse was piloted across various industries of Vedanta and was finally awarded the mandate to implement its solution across all Vedanta sites.
Since its deployment, T-Pulse has significantly increased the visibility of workplace risks, leading to early identification of more than 4,000 critical HSE non-compliances, it says.
Daniel Raj David, CEO and Co-founder, Detect Technologies, said: “We appreciate the continued conviction Vedanta has shown in Detect and are excited to enable them in their journey towards improvements in ESG and safety compliance. This is another testament to our mission of driving change through AI and advanced technologies to create a better world.”
T-Pulse, Detect says, offers a centralised and scalable technology stack designed for plug and play deployment. Engineered for risk minimisation and mitigation through actionable insights, T-Pulse has witnessed growing deployments across major caution-intensive workplaces such as construction, petrochemicals, logistics, power, metals, mining, pharmaceuticals and fabrication yards.
Vedanta Group CEO, Sunil Duggal, said: “This partnership will further augment Vedanta’s capabilities on technology-led safety enablement. Detect Technologies’ AI and computer vision solutions will help us enhance our digital safety monitoring across all business units.”
