Man-down and GPS location functionality added to Peoplesafe

Rocksure Systems : 26 November, 2008  (New Product)
Lone worker protection system from Rocksure Systems includes checking-in facility for protection of workers against incapacity along with GPS option for pinpointing worker location
Man-down and GPS location functionality added to Peoplesafe
At the forefront of new technology for lone and vulnerable workers, Rocksure Systems has introduced two new versions of its leading Peoplesafe lone worker protection service. Peoplesafe with Man-Down protection is able to detect whether the wearer is incapacitated after a fall or injury whilst its new GPS option is able to pinpoint a worker's location to within a few metres.

Peoplesafe with Man-Down provides all the proven benefits of the existing Peoplesafe service, protecting lone workers from abuse or attack, whilst incorporating the capability for a manned monitoring centre to be alerted, either manually or automatically, in the case of injury or incapacity of the user. State-of-the-art signal processing technology analyses tilt, immobility and any sudden impacts, in combination with non-response timed alerts. This in addition to a rip alarm and discreetly operable manual call button helps detect an employee in difficulty, and raise an alarm across the GSM phone network, whilst minimising false alarms.

Lone workers that are constantly on the move or who work in rural areas can create specific challenges for employers needing to ensure their safety. To aid the easy detection of these workers should they face potential jeopardy from abuse or accident, Rocksure Systems has added the option of GPS to its existing Peoplesafe services.

Available with the standard Peoplesafe and Man-Down services, the new GPS technology is accommodated in similar sized units to the standard Peoplesafe devices in order to maintain their discreet look and feel. As with all Peoplesafe services the wearer retains control and is able to decide when they wish to be located.

All Rocksure Systems' Peoplesafe services are designed to encompass every aspect of a company's need to provide duty of care to its employees when working alone. The services combine the six-core elements that are essential for a credible and complete lone worker solution, namely the Peoplesafe unit, operator response, tracking, training, configuration with the most appropriate mobile network and ongoing support.

Users press a 'checking in' button to notify Rocksure's monitoring centre when they know they are entering a potentially hazardous situation. If they then have cause to press the red alert, operators retrieve the information on their locality, listen in on the line to what is happening and co-ordinate the appropriate emergency support - involving the police if necessary.

"Increasing legislation has focused companies' minds on the responsibility they have for their workers safety", said Martin Rodgers, Sales Director of Rocksure Systems. "The new Peoplesafe service options offer a wide range of protection, alert and location capabilities for lone workers whatever their role".
