ID device can summon emergency aid

SoloProtect® Worker Safety Solutions has made available SoloProtect ID, a mobile communications device designed to help protect employees who are working alone. SoloProtect ID is styled as an ID badge for comfortable wear and discreet use. When faced with a social or environmental risk, a user can press a button to initiate a communication channel with SoloProtect Worker Safety Solutions' in-house emergency dispatch center, which monitors calls 24/7. Equipped with GPS location tracking, the device also reportedly has a Yellow Alert function enabling a user to record a 30-second message containing exact location details, such as floor number and other situationally important information, before beginning work. And SoloProtect ID's Man Down feature monitors tilt, nonmovement and impact and automatically will contact the dispatch center if necessary.
