SIERA.AI Leads the Way with Preemptive Accident Control for Industrial Lift Trucks with Real-Time Access to Data and Assets

AUSTIN, Texas -- Connected Industrial Mobility leader, SIERA.AI, announced the advancement of the telemetry Dashboard for remote visibility and monitoring to drive efficiencies and reduce lift truck accidents.

Operational connectivity continues to grow as manufacturing, warehouse and distribution centers seek to improve mobile safety, efficiencies and agility. As the collection of data evolves toward proactivity, lift truck safety systems are required to capture data further up the incident process. A solution is needed to connect and track the growing number of lift trucks, incidents and influx of new workers.

To advance the identification of lift truck incidents, SIERA.AI's Near Miss Tracking is a key indicator for potential injuries, accidents or fatalities. In 2021, SIERA.AI tracked 1.1 million near misses and high, medium and low impacts, a collective result of real-time customer incidents. A further breakdown includes 12,300 pedestrian near misses and 27,400 object near misses. The analysis of the near miss tracking results shows the 'who' and 'where' so safety, facility and plant managers can determine the 'why' and preempt further incidents from occurring.

"Our customers are taking on critical mobile safety challenges. As they take on these challenges, companies demand a forklift safety solution that captures information further up the accident process," said Saurav Agarwal, Founder and CEO, SIERA.AI. "We're empowering our customers with critical data to understand the movements and challenges to achieve a zero-accident environment."

To further empower fleet and maintenance managers' ability to control non-production lift trucks and OSHA failed forklift inspections, SIERA.AI's enhanced Forklift Access Control, prevents unauthorized individuals from powering and operating a lift truck. The controls are situated in the telemetry online Dashboard for remote access and shut down.

"There are many reasons to shut down a forklift in production. For our customers, if a forklift fails an OSHA forklift inspection, management can automatically give an audio and visual notification to the forklift driver that they have 30, 42 or 61 seconds to pull over in a safe way to park the vehicle," said Suhas Ajuha, COO, SIERA.AI. "All controls are easy to find and use ensuring urgency is taken when a situation arises."

Revolutionary Restroom Organizer Protects Purses and Phones at Stalls and Urinals

ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- Increased awareness of germs and bacteria has changed our behavior regarding contact and hygiene. These changes are notable regarding the use of commercial restrooms, which 60% of Americans visit at least once a week. One of the top complaints of shared restrooms is the risk of subjecting one's personal belongings to germs, damage, and theft. This means every day, millions of people are entering a vulnerable space without convenient protection for their phones, purses, and other personal belongings. StallStash, a restroom partition shelf, improves the safety and comfort of restroom visits by keeping belongings clean, close, and safe.

"Today, 42% of us are more concerned about using a public restroom than we were 18 months ago," says Robert Kodner, president of StallStash. "In addition to sanitary issues, we know that the average cost of a cell phone is $580, and a typical purse contains $720 worth of items."

Kodner continues, "For many of us, using a public restroom is a 'necessary evil.' By offering a solution that allows restroom visitors to keep their belongings safe and clean, we are able to improve the restroom experience for everyone. As an added benefit, 64% of us will frequent a business based on the fact it has clean restrooms."

StallStash units attach easily to all standard restroom partitions (without tools or hardware), and are made of 100% plexiglass. StallStash units are engineered to protect cell phones, purses, laptops, wallets, backpacks, and briefcases.

Fran Kaiser, a property manager at Century Management in California, says, "When one of our tenants asked us to find a way to help keep purses, phones, and files off the bathroom floor, we knew just the standard hooks would not do. I searched high and low and nothing would fit their needs until we found StallStash. I now use them in our restrooms. They have held up to the usage, and we could not be happier with the product."

StallStash is designed for all public and commercial restrooms. StallStash clients include medical facilities, restaurants, commercial buildings, shopping centers, event spaces, schools, fitness centers, stadiums, venues, transportation terminals, places of worship, and popular attractions.

COVID-19 Scent Detection Dogs

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- We are pleased to announce that K9 P.I. Inc, in conjunction with PepeDogs™, is jumping into the fight to better protect people from COVID-19. Our companies are no stranger to training scent dogs on a wide variety of signature odors, consisting of but not limited to; entomology, nematology, agriculture, environmental conservation and medical alert applications including the detection of melanoma skin cancer.

We utilize the same proprietary method for all of our scent work. Our dogs have been independently tested by a variety of researchers including this from the University of Florida, USDA, Walt Disney Conservation Program and Penn State University.

Across all disciplines we have shown consistent rates for accuracy exceeding 97% with false indication rates of less than 4%.

We have already successfully trained a dog to detect COVID-19 and are currently in the process of adding additional dogs to our workforce arsenal. Incorporating the COVID-19 signature odor into our training method works because COVID-19 produces unique odor chemicals and causes metabolic changes in those infected with the virus, resulting in odors that dogs can detect (*note 1). Furthermore, UVC radiation ensures that the signature odor will be free of active viral particles / non infective per a research protocol (*note 2).

The training process takes between 4-12 weeks, which depends on the dogs' level of experience upon entering the training program. Once trained, our dogs are deployed to real world environments such as Sporting Events, Cruise Ships, Conventions, Wedding Venues and Concerts amongst many others.

Unlike other scent detection applications, our dogs will be evaluated monthly due to the sensitive nature and importance of maintaining the best accuracy possible. Though we understand that the employment of our dogs will not guarantee a venue 100% accuracy, it will though allow the venues another layer of protection in limiting the possibility of positive COVID from entering the venue.

Our COVID detection services are greater than 90% accurate, can accommodate screening of a large number of people, but are also non-invasive in nature. Although the dogs are not the silver bullet in solving this particular detection problem, they are one of the most accurate, least intrusive methods for covering large areas or groups of people. An alert by a COVID-19 detection dog would be an indication that further testing is needed to confirm the presence of the virus.

Let us journey into 2021 healthier and safer as we help, one sniff at a time.

StallStash Demand Grows as Focus on Public Restroom Cleanliness Increases

ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- From schools and restaurants to healthcare facilities and airports, management is working to find solutions to minimize viral spread by providing cleaner and safer restrooms for their visitors and employees. And, StallStash is working to meet that demand. StallStash is a PPE plexiglass restroom partition shelf that protects phones, purses and other belongings at stalls, urinals and sink areas from germs, damage and theft.

Businesses and other institutions are in hot pursuit of new ways to improve their patrons' restroom experience because, according to the 10th Annual Healthy Hand Washing Survey by Bradley Corp., consumers will frequent a location and even spend more money if they know their restrooms are clean and well-maintained.

"Increased awareness of germs and bacteria has changed our behavior regarding contact and hygiene," Robert Kodner, president of StallStash, says. "According to a recent study, 42 percent of people are more concerned about using public restrooms now than they were this time last year."

Most people who enter a public restroom bring their valuables and personal items with them into this vulnerable space. StallStash not only eliminates the stress and worry of dropping or damaging a phone or purse, but it also protects the person's health and belongings by keeping them clean, safe and protected from bacteria and germs.

StallStash is budget-friendly (less than $25), easy to attach to all standard partitions, and well-engineered to fit small and large items such as wallets or backpacks. StallStash units are designed for all public and commercial restrooms, and are easy to clean. And, a StallStash unit can hold up to eight pounds.

"Sixty percent of us visit a public or commercial restroom one to five times per week," Kodner adds. "And, COVID-19 has permanently altered our attitudes regarding the sanitary conditions of public and commercial restrooms. StallStash has proven to be an affordable and effective way to improve the restroom experience for people, worldwide."
