Our award-winning EkoTek and EkoSecure staff safety systems protect workers by ensuring the delivery of vital alarm and location information at the press of a button.

The system creates a reliable, battery-operated, self-healing wireless mesh network which transmits the location and alert-level of an alarm, triggered at either fixed alarm points or via a discreet, portable personal safety alarm, directly to designated responders, with alert acknowledgement and auto-escalation should the alert go unnoticed.

Our staff safety alarm solution is ideal for many different applications within public and private healthcare, psychiatric care and rehabilitation, animal shelters, education, manufacturing and in courts of law to name a few. Thanks to our ATEX pager, the system can also be deployed in areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere.

Why staff safety alarms are needed:

  • 15% of NHS staff experienced physical violence from patients, their relatives or other members of the public over a 12-month period (NHS Staff Survey 2019)
  • Across England & Wales, 374,000 adults experienced violence at work in 2017/18 (CSEW)
  • Slips, trips & falls accounted for 29% of non-fatal workplace injuries in 2018/19 (RIDDOR)

“The Trust made the decision to implement a system that can alert security personnel of a problem or potential problem so they can be dispatched to prevent or deal with it. We put the project out to tender and chose Multitone and EkoTek because the solution seamlessly integrates with our existing communications network and also because we have an excellent long-standing relationship with the company - which has proven to be a highly reliable and supportive partner."

Paddy Graffin, Head of Estates at Health and Social Care in Northern Ireland

The solution's key features

Self-Monitored Mesh Network

The system notifies you automatically if there's a fault: however, broken or disrupted repeaters won’t prevent the transmission of an alarm. As the system is fully wireless, it's economical, quick and easy to install.

Emergency Alarm

The red button triggers a critical alert to summon help, including location and user information. An escalation process ensures all alarms need to be accepted with a response.

Call for Assistance

The blue button offers a second non-critical alert to that of the emergency alert.

Snatch Cord

During an incident, pulling the snatch cord provides an instant alarm should the device be removed from the wearer.

Dead Man

Portable units can be configured to raise an alarm if no response is received to a scheduled request, with escalation.

Man down

Portable units can be set up with man-down functionality, so that on suffering a fall, an alarm is raised with escalation.
