The Urbint story

Urbint was founded on the idea that, with real-world data and artificial intelligence, we could efficiently and accurately predict and prevent incidents that threaten critical infrastructure, workers, the community, and the environment.

We first applied our technology to underground utilities, identifying facilities at risk of leaks or third-party damages. Utilities throughout North America improved their monitoring and mitigation efforts and reduced their number of damages by 25 percent on average. Then, we tackled worker safety, introducing a solution that identifies safety hazards and threats in advance to prevent incidents that cause life-altering injuries and fatalities.

We believe it's possible to build a world with zero safety incidents—incidents that cost energy and infrastructure companies billions and cause irreparable damage to families, communities, and the environment. Our mission is to make it happen.
