Limit personal injury
Personal alarms fulfills a need to secure the workplace for employees, especially those who work alone in hazardous environments.
Personal alarms target two different risk groups:
• Risk of violence – People who, in their work, may be exposed to threats or violence
• Risk of accident – People who, in their work, are exposed to a major accident risk
Risk of violence
The best way to avoid a threatening situation developing into violence or assault is to quickly get another colleague to the site. In case of violence or assault, additional persons can stop the abuse and limit injuries. Our personal alarms include alarm buttons but also automatic alarm functions such as fall alarms and Man Down (person stays lying down for too long).
Risk of accident
In the event of serious accidents, time to first aid is very critical. Despite the fact that the ambulance in Sweden normally arrives after about ten minutes, ambulance personnel only manage to save one cardiac arrest in ten. Ensuring that a colleague can come quickly to begin first aid can save lives. Our personal alarms include alarm buttons but also automatic alarm functions such as fall alarms and Man Down (person stays lying down for too long). If you work in areas with poor cellphone coverage, our timer alarm is a good way to ensure assistance.
There are a number of environments where meetings can be tense and threatening. Some examples are in Social Services when delivering a message about taking over the care of children, or vehicle inspection where a driving ban is imposed upon the car. Calling a colleague quickly reduces the risk of the threatening situation developing into violence or abuse. Fixed alarm buttons in selected risk environments connected to a TeleCall system create increased security at these workplaces.
