Fall detection app for Lone Worker Safety

The MultiBel solution for lone workers contains several options to guarantee the safety of your employees:

Fall detection for Lone workers

Fall detection means that the system detects that the employee falls down. At that moment a signal is sent out asap in order that others are alerted to offer help.

When selecting a lone worker solution with fall detection, the exact usage is always an important topic. In many situations the smartphone app is a good and accessible solution, but there are also situations where, for example, the smartphone may not be worn, or where another hardware solution is already available.

If the smartphone’s sensors exceed a predetermined value in the Lone Worker app, a fall detection notification is sent. The location of the victim is immediately sent along with the alarm. A 2-way voice connection also opens in the victim’s lone worker app. This makes it possible to communicate directly with the victim.

Fall detection with hardware

If you want to use hardware instead of fall detection in the lone worker app, that is also an option. MultiBel works as a platform for alerting, informing and communicating. Hardware can easily be linked to the platform. For example, we often link other hardware, ranging from fire alarm panels to emergency buttons. We regularly come across hardware from TWIG for fall detection. We are happy to put you in touch with the supplier for the exact choice of the right hardware.

MultiBel lone worker solutions

Due to the versatility and flexibility of the platform, MultiBel offers a solution for lone workers in all risk classes. If an organization opts for MultiBel, the specific interpretation can be filled in for each individual. For example, it may be sufficient to put an alarm button under the counter at the reception, to alert colleagues in the adjacent offices, and in case your employee work in a warehouse or production hall it might be required to have a fall detection that alerts the emergency response team.

Reporting to colleagues or a PAC

Whether you opt for reporting to colleagues or a Private Alarm Center (PAC) depends on your wishes. Most of our customers choose to send an alert to a direct colleague. The reason for this is that MultiBel always has insight into who is present in the area. As a result the possibility to provide assistance as soon as possible is maximized.

Why fall detection via smartphone?

It is not always possible to opt for a fall detection solution in the MultiBel app. This largely depends on the risk class, but also whether the person is allowed to carry a smartphone.
