SafeTCard can be configured for use in many different applications. The following is a list of key features and benefits that SafeTCard can help provide within our lone worker alarm:
SafeTCard Personal Safety Solution is the unique and award-winning lone worker alarm styled like an identity card holder. Easy to wear and discreet to use. SafeTCard allows the user to dynamically assess risk, to capture audio evidence through a live link to 24/7 monitoring, and to receive assistance if faced with verbal abuse, attack or if 'Man Down'.
The key function is the ability to discreetly raise an alarm (‘Red Alert' function) through pressing a button on the rear of the unit, prompting the SafeTCard to make a telephone call to 24/7 monitoring. The call is then monitored by a dedicated operator, the audio is recorded for future use should it be required as admissible evidence for court proceedings, and then escalated in line with the required response for that lone worker. This might range from a telephone call to a user or a lone worker manager to discuss the current alert; right up to a call to the Police should it be required. A 'Red Alert' can also be raised automatically through the Rip-Alarm feature should the SafeTCard device be removed from wear by a user forcibly.
Each SafeTCard lone worker device has a ‘Status Check' that forms part of a lone workers dynamic risk assessment and gives a user visual feedback (through flashing LED's) on the strength of network signal, GPS coverage (if a GPS enabled device) and battery life on the device at a given moment in time. This helps further equip a worker to make a decision as to whether they should enter a premises or situation.
The ‘Amber Alert' function, again through the push of a button on the device, allows a lone worker to leave a short (typically 15-20 seconds) voice message through the unit outlining any contextual information about the situation they are entering i.e. name, location, activity and any apparent risk. This information should be left anytime a lone worker does anything new or when entering an 'at risk' environment; as this information is only accessed by operators at the control centre in the event of a ‘Red Alert' it is important that it is kept up to date. Information provided through the 'Amber Alert' is vital should there be a subsequent 'Red Alert' situation.
If you have a 'Man Down' enabled SafeTCard, your device can operate automatically in the event you become incapacitated due to illness, or a trip, slip or fall. If the device tilts from the vertical by 70° and in combination is motionless for a definable time period it enters a 'pre-alarm phase'. If no movement is subsequently detected, again for a definable time period, a 'Red Alert' will open automatically and the monitoring centre will be called to assess the incident directly.
SafeTCard GPS functionality allows additional protection and peace of mind for lone workers and employers alike. GPS is more suited to the requirements of some lone workers than others - that's why some devices within the range allow configuration to communicate their location data only during a 'Red Alert' situation.
GPS configuration can also be set up to include integration with, a secure online portal allowing a range of business benefits through a better deployment of mobile workers aided by location data availability.
