seekerid_frontAccording to HSE statistics  there were 212 people killed at work in the period 2005/2006 and a further 28,605 who suffered a major injury, losing the industry six million working days.  There are many sectors, such as construction, security and delivery services, that employ large numbers of workers, where there is not only a risk from abuse or attack but also a significant risk of injury.  Additionally, new Corporate Manslaughter legislation is focussing attention on lone workers and a company's legal and social duty of care to provide staff with safety equipment that reduces their working risks from both attack and injury.

Identicom Additional Information and Data Sheets

Example of a staff member wearing the Seeker ID UnitThe Identicom with Man-Down provides protection for lone workers from abuse or attack, whilst incorporating the capability for a monitoring centre to be alerted, either manually or automatically, in the case of injury or incapacity of the user.

State-of-the-art signal processing technology analyses tilt, immobility and any sudden impacts, in combination with non-response timed alerts.  This, in addition to a rip alarm and discreetly operable red alert button helps to detect an employee in duress, and raise an alarm across the mobile phone network, whilst minimizing false alarms.

The Identicom is supplied with a rugged, weather resistant, silicone case that attaches to the user's belt.  Maintaining a clear window on the user's identity card and easy access to the red alert button, a quick release mechanism enables easy access to the Identicom to check status and leave amber alert messages without having to remove the case.

The Identicom with Man-Down addresses risks from abuse, attack and injury, providing employers with a means of reducing their exposure to costs of insurance and litigation resulting from regulatory, legislative and employee bodies.

  • Unique ID card format ensures Identicom is always with the worker and within immediate reach
