Install Safety Sentry™ BEFORE the Accident

Numerous injuries and deaths occur each year in the loading dock during vehicle backing. One local OSHA Area Director states “This office has investigated one similar incident per year over the past several years, and it's about time these types of fatalities stop. Worker death from this cause can happen to companies large or small, and we all need to work on prevention.” The United States government does not mandate any backup signal alarm on most motor vehicles including semi-tractor trailer. OSHA indicates that backing trailer rigs are the second leading cause of backover accidents in the country and in fact there have been forty (40) fatal accidents involving backing trailer rigs in the past six (6) years!

The Safety Sentry™ is an innovative concept utilizing a 105dB siren and strobe light combination system in synch with proven industrial motion sensing technology. The highly durable patent pending design is rated NEMA 4 and constructed with UV resistant polycarbonate using liquid tight strain relief connections. Preset and very easy to install. 

Additionally you can utilize the Safety Sentry™ as part of your facilities Internet of things (IoT) system with optional built-in Wi-Fi 2.4GHz, RF 433MHz Smart Switch. This enables the user to turn the Safety Sentry™ power on or off and set predetermined times for this function (facility closed during these hours, etc.).

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that 73 percent of backup accidents would have been prevented if the pedestrian could have heard a warning signal from a backup alarm (NHTSA 2-5). Don’t let the vehicles lack of a backup alarm cause injury or death in your loading dock, with the inevitable resulting lawsuit. At a cost as low as $200 per dock position, Safety Sentry™ Warning Signal Alarm will save lives!

You might think the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and/or the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulate all vehicle safety equipment. Yet the reality is that the only federal standard governing installation of back-up alarms and other safety equipment for trucks is contained in the Occupational and Safety Health Administration (OSHA) Code of Federal Regulations at 29 CFR 1926.601(b)(4) and in 29 CFR 1926.602(a)(9)(i). These requirements are only applicable to motor vehicles operating within an off-highway job site that is not open to public traffic.

According to 29 CFR 1926.601(a) regulations, a vehicle with an obstructed view to the rear must have a "reverse signal alarm audible above the surrounding noise level," or the vehicle can only be backed up when an observer signals it is safe to back up.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that 73 percent of backup accidents would have been prevented if the pedestrian could have heard a warning signal from a backup alarm (NHTSA 2-5). OSHA indicates if a device "provides adequate warning to workers in the path of the vehicle, and to workers walking towards the path of the vehicle in time to avoid contact,” it would comply with OSHA regulations.
