Implementation of OneTrack.AI

The OneTrack.AI technology is installed on forklifts in Rinchem's warehouses and uses machine learning and proprietary AI sensors to detect, record, and prevent risky behaviors and accidents. OneTrack.AI analytics tools provide visibility for leadership to identify trends, root causes, and process improvement opportunities.

In the first 6 months since implementation, the OneTrack.AI Solution has had a measurable impact on warehouse operations at Rinchem: overall safety events reduced by 93% including a 95% reduction in unauthorized phone use, 73% reduction in impacts, and 71% reduction in potentially unsafe behaviors such as fast turns. A key component of the OneTrack.AI Solution is the ability to coach on leading indicators to prevent unsafe behaviors before they turn into incidents.

Improving Safety and Compliance by Creating One-of-a-Kind Technology in Partnership with CAS

Rinchem, in partnership with CAS, a division of the American Chemical Society, developed a technology that revolutionizes the way we track, and report regulated materials. This technology improves data integrity, increased accuracy and efficiency while simultaneously improving compliance and safety. Every year, we are required to report and track certain chemicals to the state government, a process that can take months to determine if a chemical is reportable. With this innovative technology, we can now generate precise data instantly by running a report, ensuring that Rinchem meets strict regulatory requirements.
