Ascom personnel safety protection solutions for manufacturing

Where is employee X? Is equipment item Y still out of action? What’s the status on production line 2? Mobile handsets, reliable IP DECT and VoWiFi coverage, Real-Time Location Services, perimeter alarms, data collection—all these and more are available as part of Ascom’s productivity-boosting workflow solutions.

A worker loses consciousness before having a chance to transmit a personal alarm. A suspected gas leak calls for a coordinated response across a sprawling production facility. Responders need to locate of a distress call’s origins. These are just some of the real world scenarios that Ascom manufacturing solutions deal with, day in and day out. Ascom: mobile personal alarm solutions for the people that keep us mobile.

  • Targeted alerts for faster response

    With the push of a button, staff can send data-rich alerts to selected co-workers. These data can include the alert’s location, often with room-level accuracy. Alerts include voice, text, audio and visual alarms—and range from discreet, silent distress calls to major event alarms. Alerts are automatically transmitted to assigned recipients, and can be escalated to others if ignored or unanswered. ‘Man-down’ and ‘no-movement’ functions trigger alarms should a worker’s handset suddenly tilt, or remain silent after a specified time period. Ascom personal safety solutions are open and scalable. They can be built on virtually any existing telephony/communications infrastructure, and are easily adaptable to meet your organization’s changing needs.

    Increased safety at Maersk Tankers

    All our other tankers have personal security in the form of a “deadman” button, which the engineer activates at the entrance to the engine room. The button has a timer which has to be restarted manually every 20 minutes. If the chief engineer doesn’t restart the timer, the alarm is automatically activated and help will immediately be on its way. Instead of installing cables to the “dead-man” buttons for the ships without personal security, we chose a wireless system from Ascom. With the Ascom solution we avoid the risk that an injured employee is left all night, waiting for help. At the same time it gives much more flexibility than the “dead-man” button.
