Industrial facility managers work hard to ensure a safe working environment for their employees, but currently many rely on average safety standards set by the industry. Most industrial buildings have security systems implemented in their facilities through security staff, cameras, access control, etc.
However, with a simple, intuitive and budget-friendly solution Bluepoint will multiply the effectiveness of current security systems and make your organization stand out as one with a unique and superior level of safety. Medical pull stations give your people the ability to quickly notify medical emergency responders in the event of an injury.
Although safety of industrial workers has improved tremendously over time, there remains many opportunities for injuries. Providing a medical Rapid Emergency Response System (RERS) in the areas of worker concentration provides the best possible means to notify emergency responders of an incident with exact location information and a means of emergency communication as the situation unfolds.
Spaces such as HR offices, front office lobby, “C”-suite, or high occupancy areas, most often benefit from a police/security RERS. With the potential threat of disgruntled employees, layoffs, employee stress, and other factors that are most often unknown to the employer, protecting the employees in these vulnerable areas is a responsible approach.
True Life Safety
BluePoint’s solution is unique in the industry because we have taken a true life safety approach. We have implemented the technical requirements that make the fire alarm the most reliable system installed in buildings—it has to be functional when you need it. Additionally, our communications platform complies with FEMA’s recommendation of best practices for Incident Command Structure and Multi-Hazard Communications.
Simple, Intuitive Activation
The BluePoint solution has been built for use in crisis situations. With adrenaline flowing and panic setting in, the user interface has to be familiar, simple, and intuitive so that people will actually use it. No one has to be trained on how to activate BluePoint — only when to use it and what to do after activation. The solution is enhanced with wearable mobile pendants in addition to standard pull stations. This provides an even greater ability for people moving about the building to immediately and securely activate the system if they see a problem.
As a true life safety solution, BluePoint notifies all occupants of a building—employees and visitors alike—to take precautions through strobe lights and audio messaging that reduces panic and confusion. The messaging can include a reminder of the response protocol (lockdown, run-hide-fight, etc.) as well as assurance that police are on their way. Strobe lights reinforce the messaging, especially in high ambient noise areas and outside buildings, warning people not to enter.
“First responders received immediate notification and were providing medical care to the fallen employees within one minute of the alert—a dramatic improvement in response time.”
