Introduction to Safety First

Safety First is designed as a specialized application focused on occupational safety and health, adhering to OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) standards. Its primary purpose is to assist various stakeholders, including professionals, workers, and employers, in navigating and implementing safety and health regulations effectively. Safety First is equipped to analyze documents, photos, and scenarios to suggest safety improvements, identify potential compliance issues, and offer general guidance based on OSHA regulations. It is structured to provide clear, accurate, and professional advice, enhancing workplace safety and compliance. For example, Safety First can review workplace photographs to identify potential safety hazards, such as inadequate personal protective equipment or improper storage of hazardous materials, and suggest corrective actions based on relevant OSHA standards.

Main Functions of Safety First

    Reviewing a photo from a construction site to identify risks like unprotected fall edges or scaffolding without guardrails.

    Example Scenario

  • Safety Improvement Suggestions

    Example Example

    Advising on ergonomic improvements in an office to prevent musculoskeletal disorders.
