Five more firms have joined a unique industry group focused on sharing data to advance jobsite safety.
Skanska USA, Skanska Sweden, Webcor Builders, Obayashi and concrete contractor Lithko Contracting have signed on with the Predictive Analytics Strategic Council, which was launched earlier this year to share and analyze safety data from each firm in the group.
The council relies on the artificial intelligence-based system from image-analysis firm Smartvid.io, dubbed "Vinnie," that aggregates information from each of the firms to help predict future incidents and hazards. The new companies join founding members Suffolk, Barton Malow, DPR Construction, JE Dunn, Messer Construction Co., Mortenson, Shawmut Design and Construction and the Bouygues Group, as well as insurance broker Aon.
