An ever increasing number of companies now focus on emergency management, not least those in industries with considerable risk of harm to personnel and equipment. The industrial sector needs complete solutions that ensure fast action.
Precious minutes can be saved if a company’s health and safety manager can provide details of the incident and local conditions to the emergency services that are on their way, for example in response to an automatic alarm. Companies that manufacture environmentally harmful chemical products, or work in knowledge-intensive industries such as pharma, medico or electronics, have a vested interest in being alerted as soon as an incident occurs.
Personal safety and emergency management require a professional solution
Professional solutions including all types of alarm (such as emergency calls, fire and burglar alarms, personal attack alarms, lone worker alarms, lift alarms and technical alarms) are necessary if companies in high-risk industries are to meet the strict requirements for protection of personnel and equipment.
Helping personnel feel safe
Staff safety is high on the list of priorities, particularly when people work alone or at times when no-one else is in the building, production areas or areas covered by security guards. Installing fire monitoring, emergency buttons on lifts and tilt or lone worker alarms helps employees feel safe.
Better communication benefits the working environment
People who work alone, such as drivers, train drivers and traffic wardens, are particularly vulnerable. They have a higher than average risk of occupational accidents or assaults. Contact with others who work alone via radio or telephone can provide a sense of security and, at the same time, create a social connection to colleagues who work under the same conditions.
