Safety in the workplace is essential for both employees and employers alike. Our solutions can keep employees safe, protect industrial equipment, and help employers fulfil their duty of care.
Staff Attack Alarm
Many workers face the daily risk of physical violence or harassment in the workplace. Staff need reassurance that help is never far away while managers need to minimize the risk and costly consequences. As a result, the ability to instantly raise alarms and rapidly respond to incidents is critical for a safer workplace.
Staff who work alone face greater risks if something goes wrong. Minimizing these risks and making staff more confident in their job, you need a safety solution that supports lone workers and ensures responders can react to an emergency as quickly and effectively as possible.
It is vital to ensure the safety of security or prison guards on their daily rounds. You must also be able to log activity and show that the required checks are carried out. The right solution can reliably and efficiently meet both needs.
In the EU alone, there were a concerning 2.7 million work-related accidents in 2020, with 3,355 deaths (Source: Eurostat). Beyond the tragic human cost, these accidents lead to further consequences like long absences for illness and injury, cover through extra personnel or having to recruit and train new staff, and the time and money lost through downtime or disruption of operations.
Whether it’s a prison guard facing a dangerous inmate, a lone technician overcome by toxic fumes, a store worker threatened by a customer or a security guard not checking in during their rounds, each of them needs to know that their safety is taken seriously, and that help is never far away.
