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 in a remote location. Because of this, SoloProtect ID is equipped with an 'Incapacitation Alarm' (previously referred to as 'Man Down').
SoloProtect ID 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 SoloProtect ID device is not moved for a further 2 minutes, then it will automatically raise an 'Incapacitation Red Alert' and contact the Alarm Receiving Centre. The vibration signature of the device tells the alarm handler that it is an 'Incapacitation Alarm', therefore the two-way audio of the device will be utilised by the operator attempting to speak to the user directly through their device.
SoloProtect ID'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 device.
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 'Incapacitation Alarm' 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.
