The project's Context ...
Occupational Health and Safety, as well as risk prevention in industsry, have been thoroughly regulated with strict legislation in all developed countries. Successful prevention, in this context, is commonly supported by the systematic analysis of reports and observations that record deficiencies, dangerous conditions and critical events. Modern technologies, currelty fueling this analysis, include Internet of Things and Data Analytics, integrating their mechanisms in the vast majority of systems and platforms that monitor workplaces and train the appropriate safety models.
Admittedly, the most efficient "sensors" and intelligent "agents" capable of producing and maintaining a consistent stream of qualitatitve safety reports, are the custormers and the employees themselves. Introducting human-in-the-loop when monitoring and assessing safety measure and controls, can instantly upgrade the knowledge desnity of what is reported and how actionable it is by experts and auditors. The awareness and contribution of both clients and employees, can be trained and incentivized to provide the most relevant and contextually enriched information from the field.

The project's Objectives ...
During the pandemic, the need for public awareness on health and safety was particularly highlighted. Health workers along with the public, have entered a longstanding struggle where competence, responsibility and monitoring, are essential for ensuring safety and protecting our way of life. Utilizing emerging technologies and investing on the most recent developments, Safety4ALL aims to aid this struggle and the serve the above cause. More specifically the project aims:
1. To motivate the public's involvement and contribuing, when safety risks are indentified in environments and venues they commonly use or work at.
2. To support experts (health & safety consultants, auditors, store managers) deal with reported risks and apply the appropriate measures as soon as possible.
Investing on existing know-how and extracting insights from a rich database of audits, Safety4ALL will offer its users access to a trained model and a currated registry of classified dangers, allowing the immediate report of relevant risks and empowering their prioritized handling by domain experts.
