Stefan Borovina Talks with Newsday on AI Enhancing Workplace Safety
Stefan Borovina, a partner in Goldberg Segalla’s OSHA and Worksite Safety practice group, discussed with Newsday how emerging artificial intelligence tools can be used by companies to make their workplaces safer.
“They can’t monitor multiple floors of activity in real time, at all times, and that’s where AI can help,” said Stefan in an article titled ‘Companies Look to AI for Smarter Approach to Workplace Safety.’
Still, no matter how AI might end up assisting employers Stefan made it clear that “it’s not going to replace the employer’s obligation to keep the workplace free from hazards.”
Stefan also mentioned that AI should be introduced slowly, recommending “hon[ing] in on one particular safety issue and see how AI can help.”
