Product Features and Benefits

Key features and benefits

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:

  • Unique ID card format ensures SafeTCard is always with the worker and within immediate reach.
  • Discreet activation ensures the worker is not putting themselves at any further risk or danger.
  • Discreet activation ensures an open voice call from SafeTCard can help capture verbal abuse as well as identify potential issues of physical abuse.
  • Automatic alerting in case of injury or incapacity to the user.
  • One button activation of multiple escalation actions (i.e. voice call and multiple text messages)
  • Unique ‘Stop and Check’ function ensures the worker verifies their ability to raise an alarm before entering a potentially hazardous situation.
  • An ability to pre-record useful information before a visit is made, SafeTCard can then operate on a timer mechanism.  Failure to respond to the timer will initiate an alert status.
  • Lanyard ‘Rip Alarm’ ensures that the personal safety device enters an alert status if it is forcibly removed from the wearer.
  • All industry sized ID cards can be accommodated, simply slide in/out from the side.
  • Quad band technology means SafeTCard will operate in any area where 3G Networks exist.
  • Can be integrated fully with the Mobile WorkForce Management Platform (MWMP) to provide a comprehensive resource for personal safety management.
SafeTCard Lone Worker Protection Devices

The dedicated safety device for lone workers

SafeTCard Personal Safety device 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’.

SafeTCard Red Alert

Standard Functionality:

Raise the alarm through the ‘Red Alert’ function

The key function is the ability to discreetly raise an alarm (‘Red Alert’ function) by 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 individual’s needs. This might range from a telephone call to a user or the worker’s 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 personal safety device be removed from wear by a user forcibly.

SafeTCard Status Check Button

Status Check:

Each SafeTCard lone worker monitoring device has a ‘Status Check’ that forms part of a 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 safety 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.

SafeTCard Amber Alert Duress Alarm

Amber Alert:

The ‘Amber Alert’ function, again through the push of a button on the personal safety device, allows a single 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.

Lone worker safety solutions by SafeTCard Australia.

'Man Down' Person Down

If you have a ‘Man Down’ enabled SafeTCard, 

your lone worker safety 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 Emergency GPS

GPS (Global Positioning System)

SafeTCard GPS functionality allows additional protection and peace of mind for solo workers and employers alike. GPS is more suited to the requirements of some individual workers than others – that’s why some personal safety 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.
