Knowella Announces Launch of SaaS Platform That Can Enhance Workplace Safety with Digitization and Automation

·3 min read

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - June 20, 2022) - Knowella has announced the launch of a new SaaS (Software as a Service) platform that can significantly increase workplace safety with digitization and automation. This frees up employees to focus on their core tasks. The platform can reduce the risk of accidents in the workplace and ensure that companies are compliant with the mandatory training required for employees and safety standards like OSHA, MSHA, and COR.

Workplace safety has been in the spotlight, with the United States marking the month of June as National Safety Month. 2.8 million non-fatal injuries are reported in the US every year, with the most common injuries being sprains, strains, and tears. This comes to 350-370 injuries per 10,000 workers on an annual basis. That might not sound like much, but the approximate cost of such injuries is estimated to be as high as $250 billion. Overexertion, slips, trips, falls, and contacts with objects and equipment account for almost 85% of all workplace injuries.

Knowella's AI-powered workplace safety platform solution serves as a B2B SaaS platform that automates data collection and analysis through the use of digital forms and video analytics to improve frontline decision-making.

The risk of workplace accidents is not the same across all sectors. Agriculture, forestry, fishing, and hunting have the highest number of workplace accidents, while transportation, warehousing, and construction also have higher than the average rate of accidents.

Companies give high priority to revenue generation and quality and often take shortcuts to increase these, which can compromise workplace safety. Knowella was set up with the goal of changing this perspective through the launch of this platform that can power safety, quality, and productivity.

Knowella offers workplace safety solutions for a wide range of industries. With the advent of the (IoT), video analytics play a key role in safety solutions. The platform comes with a digital form builder that is highly configurable to automate data collection. Video analytics is used for 24x7 protection to ensure employees wear safety equipment like vests and safety helmets and comply with industry-relevant safety standards. Knowella's technology platform comes with a dozen different modules that can be used in a plug-and-play manner for different industries. The modules include a configurable form builder, video analytics, contractor management, training tracking, document control, and more.

Commenting on the launch of the new safety solution, Siddarth Singh, Co-Founder and CEO of Knowella, said, "Using the Knowella platform informs management staff and frontline employees of the steps they need to take proactively for greater workplace safety, thus driving safety culture with actionable intelligence. We not only guide you on the kind of solution you need based on the needs of your industry but also help you implement it so that onboarding is as quick as possible. In addition, it can positively impact productivity by reducing workplace accidents and helping employees focus on their core roles within their trades. Using the Knowella platform has helped our customers to reduce workplace incidents by 62%, worker compensation claims by 45%, frontline data collection times by 35%, and musculoskeletal disorders by 70%. These figures attest to the competitive advantage that Knowella can give you regarding quality and productivity."
