Over the last 10 years, I’ve worked with Supply Chain and Manufacturing leaders at numerous global enterprises while at amazing companies such as Deloitte Consulting, NYSHEX, and Flexport. Today, I’m excited to announce that I’ve just wrapped up my first week as VP, Global Head of Sales at Intenseye which is changing the way Employee Health and Safety (EHS) teams keep manufacturing plants and warehouses safe.
Before I get into the revolutionary technology that Intenseye has built, let me first dive into the problems that need to be solved. Historically, EHS teams have relied heavily on manual processes or legacy EHS technology and in-person observation to monitor adherence to safety protocols in manufacturing facilities and warehouses. The primary challenges associated with this approach include
(1) There are typically only a small number of EHS team members monitoring which may not provide sufficient coverage
(2) The focus is typically on lagging indicators rather than being preventive and
(3) The EHS workflows processes and workflows create significant inefficiencies.
Now that we’ve outlined the key issues, let’s address the size of this problem for the industry.
The International Labor Organization reports that there are around 340 million workplace accidents annually…wow! This is such a large problem, but even worse, the lack of technology that can provide leading indicators results in severe life-altering injuries or even worse, loss of life. There has to be a better way…enter Intenseye.
Intenseye was founded in 2018 with the vision of building an AI and Computer Vision powered EHS platform that can help save lives by allowing the world’s largest enterprises to scale preventative employee health and safety programs across all of their facilities. Just over 5 years later, Intenseye has created a new software category and scaled the technology to 25 countries across the globe to help protect over 100,000 workers for leading industrial groups and Fortune 500 companies. With all of the new software companies being created each year, not many can say that they truly make an impact on people’s lives – Intenseye does that and does it on a massive scale! That’s why I’m here – this is an opportunity to help scale a truly impactful product to global organizations that need it.
