Man-Down Two-way Radios
Lone Worker Man Down Wireless 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
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 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 radios for years and
is one of the leading suppliers of 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 with these solutions. 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 are cost effective and achieve full
protection for lone workers.
HQT8000 analogue licensed two-way radio
Emergency Function: This Two-way radio
will have been previously pre-programmed with
emergency functions such as the Orange Panic Button (on the
top). The Panic button is used to alert
other radio users incase of an emergency
Short press (<2.5 seconds) – will initiate an emergency
signal and transmit the alarm tones continuously until the
emergency has been dealt with. Long press
(>2.5 seconds) – will cancel the emergency button
activation. Note that all emergency alarms are transmitted
on the selected radio channel and only radios on the same
channel will receive the alarm. .
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
