An ever increasing number of companies now focus on emergency management, not least those in industries with considerable risk of harm to personnel and equipment. The industrial sector needs complete solutions that ensure fast action.
Precious minutes can be saved if a company’s health and safety manager can provide details of the incident and local conditions to the emergency services that are on their way, for example in response to an automatic alarm. Companies that manufacture environmentally harmful chemical products, or work in knowledge-intensive industries such as pharma, medico or electronics, have a vested interest in being alerted as soon as an incident occurs.
Personal safety and emergency management require a professional solution
Professional solutions including all types of alarm (such as emergency calls, fire and burglar alarms, personal attack alarms, lone worker alarms, lift alarms and technical alarms) are necessary if companies in high-risk industries are to meet the strict requirements for protection of personnel and equipment.
Helping personnel feel safe
Staff safety is high on the list of priorities, particularly when people work alone or at times when no-one else is in the building, production areas or areas covered by security guards. Installing fire monitoring, emergency buttons on lifts and tilt or lone worker alarms helps employees feel safe.
Better communication benefits the working environment
People who work alone, such as drivers, train drivers and traffic wardens, are particularly vulnerable. They have a higher than average risk of occupational accidents or assaults. Contact with others who work alone via radio or telephone can provide a sense of security and, at the same time, create a social connection to colleagues who work under the same conditions.
IHM offers a range of solutions, both large and small, and all can be scaled up or down according to your specific requirements. Solutions include products such as IHM Response, IHM Communication, and AIRBUS TETRA radios.
If an alarm is activated at a company’s own emergency control centre, it triggers both the company’s own and the public emergency response. This improves the efficiency of municipal emergency management and minimises the extent of the damage. Companies with their own emergency management ensure faster and more effective action in response to internal alarms, thus limiting or even preventing accidents.
IHM supplies professional emergency management solutions to handle every conceivable emergency situation. Our solutions ensure fast and effective coordination of operations in collaboration with external emergency management. Handling of emergency calls is automated and visual, and the solution provides on-duty staff with a clear and full picture of the accident. This enables staff on duty to act quickly and efficiently. They can brief the professionals who have been called out and coordinate operations at the accident site together with external emergency management.
The system also ensures automatic registration and archiving of incidents in readiness for documentation and statistics.
On the strength of more than 30 years of experience in emergency management, IHM supplies companies with state-of-the-art solutions.
