Using AI to Identify Areas of Risk From Your StructionSite Images

​​Newmetrix’s new and improved integration with Structionsite VideoWalk makes it simple to analyze 360 site imagery to reduce safety risk.

Newmetrix, a construction technology company that uses AI and advanced analytics to reduce safety risk, has made its StructionSite integration even more powerful with the addition of support for StructionSite’s VideoWalk feature.  

Our VideoWalk lets field users gather 360 video imagery by simply walking the jobsite with a recommended 360 camera. During the walk, imagery is collected and automatically mapped to project plans by the location and date captured – reducing the time required to gather images instead of taking still photos. 

Thanks to our new integration with Newmetrix, our customers can now get even more value from the video and image data they are already collecting. 

Newmetrix automatically pulls image and video data from your StructionSite VideoWalk across all of a company’s projects. The platform’s AI, Vinnie, analyzes the same images to identify more than 100 safety risks. Vinnie has already been able to identify safety issues such as work at height, housekeeping, improper ergonomics, and many more. 

Using predictive analytics, Vinnie combines the image data with other project data to determine the level of safety risk for each project and predicts which 20% of projects will be responsible for 80% of the risk. As a result, construction companies can target their safety resources to projects with the most impact. 

“Newmetrix has been analyzing StructionSite images from our projects for 18 months,” said Takashi Tsuchiya, Deputy Section Manager at Obayashi Construction. “The Safety AI has generated over 50,000 observations that our safety and project teams can use as opportunities for engagement. This saves time, increases the number of relevant conversations we can have about safety, and has been used by our risk department to work on lowering our insurance rates.”  

Because this was a pre-built integration, it only requires a few clicks for Newmetrix to analyze site images. And with support for VideoWalk, Newmetrix can explore even more StructionSite data to improve the accuracy of risk predictions.

How Obayashi Uses StructionSite VideoWalks for Both Safety and Progress Tracking

We want to show you what this new and improved integration can do, so we planned a sit-down conversation with one of our key integration users, Takashi (Taka) Tsuchiya Ph.D. of Obayashi’s Silicon Valley Ventures Laboratory, on September 30th at 10 am PT/1 pm ET 

During this webinar, viewers will learn how Obayashi is using StructionSite visual site documentation to make communication much more efficient and effective, reduce risk exposure, rework, and trips to the jobsite.  

With the new integration between StructionSite and Newmetrix, the same site walks users are capturing are then used to create safety metric dashboards and safety engagement photo reports for headquarter and project teams.

Join Obayashi and StructionSite and Newmetrix CEOs for a practical and interactive discussion on how innovative companies can use their visual project data to reduce risk while saving time for safety and project teams.
