Is working on your own a problem?

While it is not always hazardous to work alone, SafeTCard understands it can be in certain circumstances. Whether a situation is of high or low risk to an individual’s safety will depend on the location, type of work, interaction with the public, and consequences of an emergency, accident or injury. This is why our fall alert / incapacitation / man-down safety feature is the perfect 24/7 lone worker security monitoring device.

What is a portable duress alarm?

What happens when an alert is activated?

A call is made from the SafeTCard device to our 24/7 Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). The operator can access any information associated with the device (e.g. user details, employer, escalation contacts, instructions etc.) and hear what is occurring in the device’s surroundings. The operator listens, assesses the situation, and responds appropriately, including dispatching emergency services if required. All audio is recorded at the Alarm Receiving Centre and can be released upon Police request. The device will also communicate with GPS for your location*. *GPS location may not be obtained if alert is activated indoors, Yellow Voice feature can be used if not at a fixed site.

How do I activate an alert?

Alerts can be activated by pressing a button (red alert), pulling the lanyard to release a pin (rip alert), or if the device senses a fall alert by the user.
