SolusGuard, a Saskatchewan, Canada-based software company launched a complete set of wearable alarm for workers’ safety. The wearable device pairs with a smartphone app to instantly alert contacts that the employee is in danger. The app also includes a range of customizable features that help businesses in compliance and reporting.
This product launch coincides with new regulations from several provinces and territories in Canada that require businesses to take measures to protect lone workers. Other regions are expected to follow suit. SolusGuard features are designed to protect workers from potentially risky situations, but also to allow businesses to stay in compliance with these new laws.
The discreet personal alarm can be worn as a pendant or on a belt loop. In case of an imminent danger, the employee simply presses a button and a list of contacts are notified with an alarm coupled with the employee’s GPS location. If the contacts do not respond within two minutes, a call to 911 is made. In fact, SolusGuard is the only product of its kind that will call 911 as a backup, ensuring that the employee can reach help when they need it, the company said in a press release.
