Staff Safety & Lone worker solution

Providing security and safety for staff by ensuring help is only a button-press away

Multitone's staff safety and lone worker solution has been designed to offer peace of mind with highly effective communications. It is a reliable, battery-operated, self-healing wireless mesh network which transmits the location and alert-level of an alarm directly to designated responders, with alert acknowledgement and auto-escalation.

Members of your staff, who work either on-site by themselves or in challenging environments, can summon immediate assistance with a discreet, portable device should they feel at risk. For additional safety, it can also be configured with man-down and dead-man functionality.

In short, our award-winning EkoTek staff safety system protects workers by ensuring the delivery of vital alarm and location information at the press of a button.

Multitone's easy to use, two-way communications system is designed for simplicity of installation and to deliver a cost-effective solution for staff safety. It is ideal for many different applications within public and private healthcare, psychiatric care and rehabilitation, 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.

Multitone's staff safety solution:

  • Provides staff with a means by which they can easily and discreetly call for assistance with reassurance that help is on its way.
  • Continuously monitors all wireless devices and network components for battery life and status.
  • Protects isolated or vulnerable workers - the dead-man alarm function requires the user to acknowledge an automatically generated alert, signalling the user is well. Failure to do so will raise a high priority alarm.
  • Automatically registers devices and forms a wireless mesh network regardless of the physical layout and construction of the building, including both indoor and outdoor areas, such as car parks or walkways.
  • Provides accurate location information so that users can be found quickly, reducing the risk of any incidents escalating.

Why EkoTek?

  • 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 EkoTek staff safety system provides staff with portable devices which can be used as attack alarms or to call for help after an accident. They can also detect a fall and raise an alarm automatically
