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.
