Health and Safety Lone Worker Communication Solutions

Lone Worker Man Down Wireless Two-way Radio Solutions

In any emergency situation and especially if there is a man down speed is essential to ensure a positive outcome. Lone worker solutions with two-way radios and other integrated gateway solutions  such as our RSU1 will help to achieve that goal. If someone gets hurt while working alone, if they are conscious they can press the emergency button on the wireless 2 way radio to notify other staff. If they pass out and fall down then other staff are notified automatically. But if no one else is on-site, then with the use of the RSU1 gateway, other or emergency staff can be notified instantly for fast response.

LRS UK has specialised in the provision of lone worker man down two-way radios in h-s for years and is one of the leading suppliers of these solutions in communications of this type; whether you need simple analogue low cost radios, hybrid analogue digital radios of fully intrinsically safe ATEX rated wireless radios and other specialised gateways for man down we can help. Employee safety is important and is driven within the UK by a legal requirement that all companies have to adhere to; failure to do so if someone gets injured could result in legal action from governing bodies. These solutions shown below are cost effective and achieve full protection for lone workers.

Emergency Function: This radio will have been pre-programmed with numerous emergency functions. Note that all emergency alarms are transmitted on the selected radio channel and only radios on the same channel will receive the alarm. Emergency Button (orange button on the top). The emergency panic button is used to alert other radio users that there is an emergency. Short press (less than 2.5 seconds) – will send out an emergency signal and transmit the alarm tones continuously. Long press (more than 2.5 seconds) – will cancel the emergency panic button activation and when this has happened it lets radio users know that there is no longer an emergency to assist to.
Man Down Alert: Man down is used to automatically detect when a radio user has fallen.
If the radio is moved beyond 80degrees from the vertical (e.g. laid down or inverted) the man down timer is started. After 20 seconds the radio will emit alert beeps. Place the radio upright within 10 seconds to reset the timer. If the radio is not returned to an upright position the emergency cycle (see below) will commence. To cancel the emergency cycle, return the radio to the upright position or switch off the radio. To switch ON/OFF the Man Down Alert, press the bottom side key (marked –) for more than 2.5 seconds. You will hear two high pitched beeps for OFF and one low pitched beep for ON. The radio will recall the last used status when switching on.
Lone Worker Alert: Lone worker is used to ensure that a radio user is conscious and alert. The lone worker timer activates automatically when the radio is switched on. Each time the radio is used the timer automatically resets. After about 20 minutes of inactivity the radio will emit alert beeps for 20 seconds. The radio user can press any key on the radio during this time to reset the lone worker timer. If the radio user fails to reset the timer, the emergency cycle (see below) will commence. To switch ON/OFF the Lone Worker Alert, press the top side key (marked --) for more than 2.5 seconds. You will hear four high pitched beeps for OFF and two low pitched beeps for ON. The radio will recall the last used status when switching on.
Emergency Cycle: When the emergency cycle has been activated (either by Man Down or Lone Worker) the radio will continuously cycle until the relevant alarm is cancelled or reset, or the radio is switched off. The cycle is: 10 seconds transmitting the alarm tones followed by 10 seconds of silence (to allow responding parties to communicate). The cycle re-starts automatically.
