When it comes to emergencies, nothing beats being prepared!
No-one can predict when an emergency will arise such as a medical emergency, intruder, explosion or one of many natural disasters frequent today; flood, fire or earthquakes.
To be prepared and keep your people safe in an event of an emergency, you must know where they should be and then be able to quickly verify their Safety. An automated visitor, contractor, employee management system helps you to do this.
The first step is to capture the information on arrival for everyone coming on-site and there are a number of ways this can be done;
Visitors – Sign-in via a kiosk at reception (iPad or touchscreen tablet).
Employees/Contractors – could sign in the same way however doing this everyday can be tedious so we would recommend an ID or access card to tap/scan in and out.
During this on-boarding process you can not only share information of what is expected of those coming on-site but you can also capture some important information that will be of great importance and assistance during an emergency;
1/. Share Important Safety Notices and Evacuation Maps –
2/. Capture Mobile Numbers – To be used to send SMS asking #AreYouSafe in the event of an emergency.
3/. Staff and Visitors with a Disability – Ask this question during the sign in process and you will know who needs assistance in the event of an emergency.
Additional tools in the event of an emergency include;
WolEvac – this tool is for mobile and tablet devices and users would normally be employees who are safety marshals or fire wardens in a location. WolEvac allows them to;
- Track that Zones are cleared
- Send SMS asking #AreYouSafe
- Perform a manual roll-call
- Share critical messages with other safety marshals
- View ‘need help’ requests from people NOT safe
- View real-time verification progress
- View post evacuation reports
Print Evacuation Reports – from any PC you can export reports as a PDF including;
If you think your organisation would benefit from these evacuation tools and would like to take the next step towards a complete visitor, employee, contractor and evacuation management system contact us now.
