LR and STC Global bring step-change to HSE management through AI

Lloyd’s Register has partnered with STC Global to use AI to unlock insights from the vast amounts of untapped incident data captured by Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) functions.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} Leveraging complementary expertise, the partnership will raise the game for HSE professionals by integrating Natural Language Processing AI and root cause analysis technologies for the first time.

The outputs from the partnership will help HSE professionals to better identify and understand the underlying causes of HSE trends, patterns, systemic problems, and latent dangers. By developing a tool that provides a holistic, end to end view of incidents – past, present, and potential – HSE professionals will gain a comprehensive understanding of the key hazards associated with each incident in real time. Once deployed, HSE professionals will be able to gain deep insight into the where and why of safety issues, ensuring each can be addressed more efficiently and effectively than ever before.

Lloyd’s Register chief technology officer Nial McCollam stated: “Lloyd’s Register’s purpose is to help make the world a safer place and our partnership strategy is key in helping us deliver that. Together Lloyd’s Register and STC Global will raise the game of HSE management and AI technologies and bring about a step change in the improvement of workplace safety.”

STC Global managing director Mark Rushton added: “We are very proud to partner with an organisation of Lloyds Register’s stature, although both organisations seek to help clients to control risk and improve performance we were surprised at just how complementary we are. Our first joint venture product will deliver a suite of incident prevention solutions which particularly excites us as it sees our COMET platform utilise machine learning for the first time.”

As part of the development of its integrated digital HSE programme for clients, Lloyd’s Register will leverage its artificial intelligence solution LR SafetyScanner built to ingest large amounts of data and then cluster them to provide HSE professionals with actionable insights across 24 hazard categories. Similarly, STC Global will apply COMET, a solution in the field of Incident Investigation and Root Cause Analysis.

Some of the key benefits of combining the two technologies will include the ability to capture recurring systemic root causes and commonly occurring root cause clusters, map out hazard ‘hot spots’ and emerging trends to focus improvement strategies and prevent incidents in the future, to create safer more profitable work environments. {/mprestriction}

  • LR and the National Physical Laboratory partner on marine autonomy assurance

    Lloyd's Register (LR) and the UK’s National Physical Laboratory (NPL) have teamed up to collaborate on marine autonomy projects to ensure that appropriate levels of service and competence can be achieved within the maritime industry.

    As part of the framework agreement, the two organisations will collectively establish and enhance the current body of knowledge for marine autonomy. This combination of skills, expertise and experience will be built on to bring clarity to the requirements for the assurance of autonomy and assist stakeholders in realising the potential of these systems in the market.

    This will allow standards to be set and consistently applied and will therefore bring surety to risk management and certification for autonomous and unmanned systems and vessels.

    By partnering with NPL, LR will enhance the delivery of its services and assurance in marine autonomy and gain access to a wide range of knowledge and expertise developed in other aligned domains.

    LR and NPL are currently working together to deliver a scope of services to the THEMIS Project, to demonstrate the feasibility for the world’s largest ocean-going autonomous vessel, which is part funded by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore’s (MPA) Maritime Innovation and Technology (MINT) fund.

    NPL’s head of Digital, Neil Stansfield, said: “The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is excited by the opportunities presented in this collaboration with Lloyd’s Register, where the two organisations complementary capabilities are well suited to addressing the challenge of assuring marine autonomous systems. This work represents an important part of the UK’s national programme to deliver confidence in the intelligent and effective use of data, which is being conducted with a range of partners across sectors and with a specific focus on autonomous systems. NPL is applying a combination of measurement skills, expertise and experience, in areas as diverse as sensor characterisation, data quality and AI validation, to support partners in the development of new tests, standards and regulations for the safety of autonomous systems. This collaboration with Lloyd’s Register will help ensure the UK maintains its global leadership in the marine services Sector, where the autonomous shipping sector is expected to represent a global $52bn market opportunity by 2050.”

    Tim Kent, LR technical director for Marine and Offshore said: “This collaboration with the NPL will allow LR to improve our own processes, knowledge and competency to better support our clients with marine autonomy projects. We are delighted to be partnering with NPL given its domain knowledge on autonomy from the connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV) and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) domains.”
