Workplace safety is a top priority for employers, and it is their responsibility to ensure that their employees are safe and protected at all times. Panic button alarms are an essential tool for workplace safety, as they allow employees to quickly and easily alert others in case of an emergency.

What is a panic button alarm?

A panic button alarm is a small device that can be carried on a keychain or worn as a pendant. Panic buttons are also known as hold up buttons and are mounted discretely under a desk. When the button is pressed, it sends an alert to Reed's central monitoring stations or a designated group of individuals, notifying them of the emergency and providing the location of the person in distress. Panic button alarms can be used in a variety of workplace settings, including offices, factories, warehouses, and retail stores.

Call coworkers or police for help!

The benefits of panic button alarms in the workplace are numerous. First and foremost, they provide employees with a quick and easy way to call for help in an emergency. Whether it is a medical emergency, a threat from a coworker or customer, or a natural disaster, a panic button alarm can alert others to the situation and ensure that help arrives quickly.

Deter violence

Panic button alarms can also be used as a deterrent to workplace violence. Knowing that employees have a way to call for help can make potential attackers think twice before attempting to harm someone in the workplace. This can help to create a safer work environment and reduce the risk of violence.

Instant alerts to coworkers

Another benefit of panic button alarms is that they can be customized to meet the specific needs of a workplace. For example, in a factory setting, a panic button alarm may be designed to activate machinery shut-off switches to prevent accidents. In an office setting, a panic button alarm may be programmed to send an alert to security personnel or designated employees.

Implementing panic button alarms in the workplace is a straightforward process. Employers can work with Reed Security to install the alarms and set up a monitoring system. Employees can be trained on how to use the alarms and what to do in case of an emergency. Regular testing and maintenance can ensure that the panic button alarms are working correctly and are ready to be used when needed.
