Prevent Incidents to Make Manufacturing Plants Safer, More Efficient

Prevent Incidents to Make Manufacturing Plants Safer, More Efficient

What safety precautions are a must in manufacturing plants? How can incidents be dealt with quickly and efficiently before escalation?

Our suite of applications, such as our Alarm Management System, Man Down Notifier, Lone Worker Monitoring, Avigilon Integration, or Broadcast enable manufacturing clients to increase safety and productivity across their operations. Here are just some of the many examples:

  • Automatically send check in messages, at preset intervals, to any text enabled radio to check on their well-being. Additionally give them the option to automatically check in at any time, or raise an immediate alarm with a Radio button press.
  • Track the location of each worker, indoors and outdoors and have that location information included in the alarm that gets generated and sent out to multiple devices (dashboard, radio, email, SMS).
  • Set up escalations for alarms so that on site personnel are notified first but outside assistance/911 is contacted if no one on site addresses the event.
  • Use the indoor location information included in a Lone Worker alarm to trigger an Avigilon event and send a message to the closest PTZ camera to direct its view to the incident.
  • When a Lone Worker is detected in an off-limits area, send a notice to the closest Avigilon camera to start recording the movements in that area and simultaneously notify the shift supervisor.
  • Allow each user to calibrate the starting point of their radio to adjust to their own personal usage to avoid false alarms (ex: if user carries the radio on their belt, allow the user to set their starting angle be at that orientation.
  • Allow users to turn their Man Down on/off so that it’s only enabled while they perform dangerous tasks.
  • Track the location of each worker, indoors and outdoors and have that location information included in the alarm that gets generated and sent out to multiple devices (dashboard, radio, email, SMS).

Safety has increased tremendously. We are able to set up escalations for alarms so that on site personnel are notified first. If nobody on site addresses the event, 911 is contacted immediately.

  • Use the indoor location information included in a Man Down alarm to trigger an Avigilon event and send a message to the closest PTZ camera to direct its view to the incident.
  • Receive alarm notifications on a map view and find other workers closest to the area to dispatch them to check on the well-being of the person who raised the alarm.
  • In addition to existing sensors, install emergency buttons across a facility to allow users to generate an emergency immediately.
  • Have events that are generated from sensors or manual input, send notifications to floor workers via radio messages, supervisors via email or dashboard notification and emergency services via a phone call. Turn on strobe lights and broadcast a message over the PA system as a visual and auditory notification.
  • Set up tracking beacons in a muster point so that all employee locations can be accounted for as they check in to the area during an emergency.
  • Automatically trigger the Avigilon cameras installed across the facility to start recording in HD and bookmark the events.
  • When a person is detected in an off-limits area, send a notice to the closest Avigilon camera to start recording the movements in that area.
    • Simultaneously: Send an email or SMS message to off site plant supervisors notifying them of the event. If no recipients respond to the alert, retry or escalate the message to different recipients, ending with a call to 911.
    • Play an automatic recording over a PA system to notify the intruder that they have been detected and security personnel are on the way.
    • From a dashboard, send a signal to lock/re-lock all doors in the building.
      Set up automatic notifications to be sent out when a door breach is detected after hours.
  • When an arriving vehicle is detected during business hours, if it’s determined by Avigilon License Plate detection to be a known vehicle, automatically send a signal to open the gate/shipping dock door and simultaneously notify workers in the area of the arrival via a text message.
  • If a vehicle is detected after hours by Avigilon, send a notification to onsite and offsite personnel immediately. Simultaneously, set off a visual and audible alert and lock any gates that may have been opened.
  • As visitors come to the front gate, allow them to press a button on the Intercom to send a group call to all security personnel on staff. A person can communicate with the person at the gate from anywhere and then press a button on their device to send a signal to open the gate.
  • Use Radio Job Tickets to select from preset information and/or enter manual information to send requests to onsite supervisors. Depending on the selected content, the information can be sent to the appropriate personnel.
  • Install wireless buttons in the facility to generate specific requests and status updates (ex: signal line status, ask for more parts, request maintenance etc) and generate notifications to relevant recipients.
  • If an emergency is generated via a button press, send a signal to the closest Avigilon camera to start recording the event.
  • Allow users to dial in to a phone system and press a preset number, along with their personal employee code to trigger emergency events.
  • When there is a line stoppage, turn on a strobe light near the area and notify the Engineering group on their radios.

Quick response times in emergencies is critical! We can now track the location of personnel indoors and outdoors. This enables us to quickly identify the closest person to an emergency for faster response.

  • Upon detecting unusual motion via an Avigilon camera, send an alert to the area supervisor on their mobile device.
  • Install color coded buttons across all facilities to generate events (fire, accident, medical, active shooter etc.) that can be pressed to notify multiple devices simultaneously.
  • Integrate to a Weather Alerting system that will automatically play an announcement over the PA system.
  • When the line temperature or humidity hits a threshold, warn the Quality Control team.
  • When an Avigilon camera detects a forklift driving in a different direction, send a message to an alarm dashboard, turn on the closest light to send a visual indicator to the driver or use the web page to send a message to the forklift driver.
  • Track the location of all forklifts in a warehouse to have a current and historical view of their movements. The current view would allow for a way to quickly locate a forklift during an event. Historical movements would lend themselves to auditing and/or training purposes.
  • Allow a user who notices the forklift going in the different direction to generate an emergency event by pressing a mounted button in the vicinity to trigger a recording event in the closest Avigilon camera and send it a notice to bookmark the event. At the same time, send a text notification to the shift supervisor.

There are many more scenarios we could list here, but we understand every manufacturing site is different, and every client has specific needs and requirements.

Please contact us for details, a demo, or to discuss your specific scenario and we’d be happy to assist.
