Apollo Safety, Inc., providers of gas detection products and services for hospitals, universities, government operations, public utilities, manufacturing, Biotech and other organizations, recently introduced the availability of enhanced Man Down/Lone Worker detection devices from Industrial Scientific.
“Many companies will employ check-in procedures to monitor the wellbeing of the lone or remote worker. That’s great but when a lone or remote worker goes down, response time is critical and a check-in procedure may not always be fast enough,” said John V. Carvalho III, Apollo Safety founder and president. “With the devices available through our relationship with Industrial Scientific, we can better prepare companies and workers for a remote worker injury. Through this monitoring technology, when a lone worker falls and does not get back up right away, we can set up the system to trigger an audible, visual and vibration alarm back to out to a monitoring station, to a cell through text or email notifications, or directly to emergency services.”
Man Alone/Lone Worker devices sold by Apollo Safety deploy communication and precise employee positioning technologies for every scenario—indoors, outdoors, and remote locations. The technology will alert responders and direct them in real-time to a precise outdoor location or, if indoors, to the exact floor and room where an employee is located.
Man Down/Lone Worker devices can be customized to include any number of features for greater safety. Those can include: automated lone worker monitoring including, man-down (no-motion) detection; peer-to-peer wireless communication; panic alarm; live cloud-hosted web software for configuration and emergency response management; live gas detection compliance dashboard that eliminates manual data collection, review and reporting; second-generation data analytics that makes it easy to visualize and explore ‘big data’ generated by every G7x; 24/7 live monitoring provided by Industrial Scientific’s in-house Safety Operations Center; two-way messaging with the live monitoring team; two-way voice calling with the live monitoring team (G7c cellular-connected device only); automatic, wireless firmware updates and device configuration changes.
Man Down/Lone Worker technology also features false fall detection, enabling the lone worker to cancel the pending alert before it’s communicated to monitoring personnel. A quick press of the check-in button returns the device work-alone device to normal operation.
Apollo Safety’s Man Down/Lone Worker detections vary in price. For many current Apollo Safety customers who employ the company’s gas detection systems, the Man Down/Lone Worker devices and technology can be incorporated in their current system.
