Identicom Lone Worker Incapacitation Alarm
Automatic alerts in the event of a trip, fall or unknown health problem could prove the difference.
How does the Incapacitation Alarm work?
The event of an injury or sudden, serious illness puts workers at greater risk if they are alone, or at a remote location. Because of this, Identicom is equipped with an Incapacitation Alarm (sometimes referred to more commonly as 'Man Down').
Identicom detects tilt, and non-movement in combination. Typically if tilted and motionless for a period of 2 minutes (standard set-up), the unit will enter a pre-alarm phase and start to vibrate in order to make the user aware the device is going to alarm if left unchecked. If the Identicom device is not moved for a further 2 minutes, then it will automatically raise a 'Man Down Red Alert' and contact the Alarm Receiving Centre. The vibration signature of the device tells the alarm handler that it is a 'Man Down' situation, therefore the two-way audio of the device will be utilised by the operator attempting to speak to the user directly through their device.

Identicom's Incapacitation Alarm gives peace of mind to an employer and lone worker that should a user suffer a trip, slip or fall - or an unknown health issue - an automatic alarm can be raised in the event they cannot raise a 'Red Alert' manually through their Identicom.
This can assist the process of getting help to an injured lone worker more quickly - thus increasing the chances of a positive outcome to a situation.
The 'Man Down' function should be considered for staff who work alone in offices or facilities without footfall or out of normal working hours, for those in remote geographical locations or at height, and for those with known issues that can lead to sudden incapacity or loss of consciousness.
