AbilityNet created the Tech4Good awards in 2011 to recognise and celebrate organisations and individuals who use digital technology to improve the lives of others and make the world a better place. 

The AI for Good Category looks for projects utilising Artificial Intelligence (AI) to make the world a better place.  

Are slips, trips and falls a problem?

Slips, trips, and falls are a leading worldwide common cause of injury, yet over 70% of accidents are completely avoidable[1]. These accidents and injuries cost the UK national Health Service over £133 million annually, and can have a life changing impact on people, affecting them physically, mentally, and financially. When slip, trips and fall accidents take place in retail environments, they also have a significant financial and reputational impact on retailers.

Data shows that over half of claims made against retailers are for slips and falls[2], demonstrating that despite health and safety policies, risk assessments and clean-up plans, hazards are not always spotted in time and can lead to injuries. 

Spill Detect – the award winning solution for slips, trips and fall prevention

Our spill detection solution uses computer vision to interpret and understand environments, detecting liquid spills in real-time and alerting staff immediately so that the hazard can be cleaned up before accidents occur. The solution offers an opportunity to tackle a high impact problem which advancements in health and safety processes have previously not been able to overcome. 

Having previously won the Most Innovative Machine Learning Solution at the AI and Machine Learning Awards, we are proud that our Spill Detect solution not only excels technically, but also delivers on our goal to use technology for good. In tackling a global challenge, and delivering state-of-the-art AI technology in a format that is simple to deploy and scale as a solution to reduce the number of slips and falls, ultimately Spill Detect is delivering on our mission  to make the world a better place, helping humanity thrive through the power of vision AI.  

Being shortlisted for the AI for Good award is a fantastic achievement, recognising our innovative, genuinely impactful solutions to real-world challenges and the good our Spill Detection solution has the potential to do across the world.
