Man Down & Lone Worker
Digital two-way radios are a valuable tool for companies with field staff who work alone, often in isolated locations or mobile black-spots. Companies need to be able to ensure the safety of these employees. We can help our customers to activate, or in some cases where the feature is not already integrated, install, two features which can help monitor radio users.
The Man Down function
The Man Down function uses a tilt-switch. This switch detects and sends an alarm if the user is not moving or movement is very limited, or the radio is positioned at a horizontal or unusual angle for a specified time. Before the Man Down alert is activated, sending an alarm to the controller, the user receives a warning signal, which he or she can respond to, to prevent false alarms.
The Lone Worker function
The Lone Worker function, meanwhile, allows supervisors to check on the radio users after determined intervals. The radio will beep and the worker needs to press the push-to-talk button to confirm he is safe and available; if he or she fails to do this, the radio will go into alert status and send an alarm to the relevant controllers.
- Improved lone worker safety
- Shortened emergency response times
- Minimised false alarms
- Ease of configuration and use
