Safe Hub uses the built-in motion sensors in mobile handsets and specialist devices to enable Worker Down. The hub then monitors the movement of the handset and its orientation. If, for example, the handset hasn’t moved for a length of time this could indicate that a lone worker requires emergency help, perhaps after a fall or incident.
Worker Down then automatically raises an alert with the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). The operatives there will access the worker's GPS location and call the worker's phone to see if they're OK. In the event of a false alarm, the worker can simply advise the ARC to ‘stand down’. If ARC staff can’t contact the worker via their handset, they will automatically follow the next steps in the person's individual escalation procedure, and can quickly dispatch emergency services to the worker’s location.
