The use of big data, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) is growing across all industries. As a result, these techniques are becoming standard tools to use in the EHS profession. Industrial Hygiene (IH) professionals love new data analysis tools. Since big data, AI, and ML are all the buzz it's easy to roll them out without considering how to use them best. Its critical they are used to the greatest potential to get the most value. Luckily, information is readily available at webinars, in books and at conference sessions. This marks a sea of change from the past decade when many corporate leaders honed their attention on regulatory compliance. With these emerging data analysis technologies, IH professionals can shift their focus to a broader, more comprehensive risk-based approach. Yet, as we innovate and expand the use of these tools, it's critical that their purpose is clearly defined and that we can clearly communicate the benefits and impacts to corporate stakeholders.
