RCP Construction and Everguard.ai are collaborating with AI and sensor fusion at commercial construction job sites in order to improve safety.

The agreement will bring Everguard's Sentri360 platform to RCP Construction's White Rock Center Project located in Rancho Cordova. 

Initial efforts will focus on using the power of AI and computer vision (CV) to enhance the safety protocols already in place for proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and geofencing deep excavation areas on the construction site. The proactive platform will ensure PPE is worn properly and provide alerts to workers via wearables when PPE is not in use. 

The use of heavy machinery, working at height, and the interaction of workers, drivers and machines on a construction site creates significant safety concerns. 

The platform will monitor for proper use of hard hats, safety glasses and reflective vests as well as face mask use to help reduce the occurrence and spread of COVID-19. Another critical safety use case involves geofencing capabilities where the platform alerts an employee who ventures into a virtual safety zone.   

In addition, this partnership will allow Everguard and RCP Construction to define additional use cases for ongoing development of Everguard's Sentri360 platform, including teaching the system via new CV algorithms to address other specific hazards found on commercial construction job sites.

"Making sure our employees return home safely at the end of every day is our number one priority," said Phil Fasolo, general superintendent at RCP Construction. "We are excited to collaborate with Everguard.ai and deploy their platform on our construction worksites to help us optimize safety and efficiency."  

Sanjay Pandya, vice president and general manager of construction at Everguard, said. "RCP Construction's dedication to ensuring every team member makes it home safely each day is unmatched, and we are excited to provide the technology to help them make strides towards that goal."
