This year’s AIHce offered many opportunities to learn about new products via two separate “learning pavilions.” The pavilions had various presenters throughout the day, continuing for the rest of the conference, who showcased their latest products and technology. Web-based technology seemed to be the theme.

Some of the tech from Monday’s presentations included:

  • A gas analyzer from Gasmet Technologies that identifies unknown gases within “minutes of arriving at site by searching the NIST/EPA reference library of over 5,000 gases simultaneously at sub-ppm levels.”
  • An artificial intelligence app capable of reading an asbestos air sample slide in less than 100 seconds through an automated microscope with complete traceability of all tests from xRapid Environment. The app is due to launch in the fall but attendees got a sneak peek.
  • Digitized safety inspections using an app from Pulpstream that helped reduce operating costs and created safer work environments for a national construction company. The platform technology enables users to manage workflow in health and safety programs and lets the user conduct site audits in the app itself, attach photos of violations and fill in OSHA standards. The app also allows inputting suggestions for taking action and mandating changes.
