Safety devices are personal alarms for those working alone with no close or direct supervision. These types of devices are used to protect lone workers and allow the employee to trigger an alarm in an emergency.
A safety device can emit a manual alarm triggered by the employee or automatically by detecting a fall, the removal of the device, or a lack of movement. The alarm is transmitted to a monitoring centre, a person on call or to a designated contact, who will confirm if it is a qualified emergency and who will then follow the emergency protocol. The devices are equipped with a microphone and a speaker to facilitate a quick exchange of this information. They are also geolocated, allowing the lone worker to be quickly located and assisted in an emergency.
The safety device you choose must be suited to the lone worker’s activity, it must be able to respond perfectly to the specific risks that the employee might face. To achieve this, our experts have developed different types of devices:
