Customisable Settings:

The spacebands person down device contains sensors that detect sudden changes in orientation, movement, or posture. When a worker falls or is otherwise immobilised, the sensors detect this change and trigger an alert to nearby spacebands devices and send an SMS to an emergency contact.

Falls and near misses are saved to the analytics dashboard, allowing employers to identify administrative or operational procedures that could be improved.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

spacebands are helping Health & Safety managers around the world reduce accidents, injuries and legal claims

What is a person down or man down device?

A man down or person down device is a safety device that is designed to detect when a person has fallen or is in a prone position and may be incapacitated or in need of assistance. It is commonly used in industries where workers may be operating alone or in hazardous environments, such as construction, mining, and oil and gas.

What types of industries are person down devices used in?

Person down devices are commonly used in industries where workers are exposed to hazardous environments or work alone, and where the risk of accidents is high. Any industry where workers are at risk of accidents or incapacitation can benefit from using person down devices to ensure their safety and provide peace of mind.

What are the benefits of using a person down device?

The primary benefit of using a person down device is to increase safety for workers. In hazardous work environments, workers may be at risk of injury or death if they become incapacitated due to a fall or other accidents. A person down device can help to detect these incidents quickly and loudly alert others to the worker's location, potentially saving their life.Employers have a responsibility to ensure the safety of their workers, and failure to provide appropriate safety equipment can result in legal liability. By providing person down devices to workers, employers can demonstrate that they have taken appropriate steps to ensure worker safety and reduce the risk of legal liability.
