Guard Tour system and security solutions

Ascom’s Guard Tour solution delivers a safer workplace, as well as reassuring managers that they are fulfilling their obligations and minimizing the consequences and costs to staff and the organization. 

Providing safety and accountability

Many organizations require guards to make regular physical checks or rounds. Whether these are checks on property and valuable goods or checks on people to safeguard their health and well-being, for example prisoners at risk of self-harm, guards are expected to follow a pre-defined route or formal checklist.

There are two main needs when carrying out these tours. Firstly, there is the need to protect staff and enable them to raise an alarm, as they are often working alone in high-risk environments. This helps guards feel more secure and confident in their job. Not to mention helping meet the legal requirements to protect employees and lowering the risk and costs to the organization, if an incident occurs. Secondly, there may be a need to audit and show evidence that the required checks were suitably performed.

As a result, it is important to have a guard tour solution that can monitor and log routes through effective location and mapping technologies. As well as making it easy for staff to raise the alarm, giving them the reassurance that their safety is taken seriously and that help is never far away.

Guard Tour solution

Ascom provides a true single-supplier solution for security or prison guard safety as well as tracking activity to show the required checks have been carried out. The solution is based on mobile devices with in-built staff safety features such as panic buttons to raise an alarm, real-time location technologies, alarm dashboards, incident mapping, and mobile response workflows. Not to mention the ability to check in at each required location and record evidence that the necessary tasks were completed.
