5 Ways to Improve Warehouse & Logistic Fire, Security & First Aider Response

Managing warehouse & logistics presents a unique set of challenges. Your Fire and Security teams must coordinate key personnel and respond to any fire and security alerts. This makes robust communication solutions in these sites vital – whether you’re in a building that’s 2 million or 20k sq ft. Responding to emergencies and maintaining safety and well-being is paramount, so your staff must be well-equipped to handle whatever comes their way. So, in this blog, we will outline 5 ways you can tighten warehousing and logistical security.

01. Fire and Security Alarm Messaging

By sending location-based alerts to pagers, radios, and mobile phones, our critical alerts solution, AlarmCall, improves safety and productivity. With this system, you’re able to prevent unauthorised entry, counteract theft, and cut down on unnecessary evacuations – it provides superior coverage for a small box! However, there’s no need to take our word for it. AlarmCall is used by household names such as ASDA, and John Lewis Distribution Centres.

02. Two-Way Radios – Critical Voice Communications

Need to relay a complex message in an instant? Strengthen your communication protocols further with our Two-Way Radios. Our range of radios is ideal for large-scale, high-capacity sites and offers real-time, high-definition audio and voice contact between teams, first aiders, and fire safety marshals. With a plethora of features available across the range, including IP67/68 Rated Handsets, vibration alert, background noise cancellation functions and 1-2-1 calls, we have the radio to suit you.

03. Two-Way Radios – Lone Worker and Man-Down Alerts

Strengthen your Lone Worker Safety, with standard features with our Two-Way Radios. Ideal for large-scale, high-capacity sites, our range of radios offers real-time, lone worker featured, with an emergency panic button, lone worker timer & man-down functions, we have the radio to suit you.

04. DeafCall

11 million people in the UK are deaf or hard of hearing. Ensuring the safety of those with hearing issues presents a challenge at the best of times. This is even truer in large, noisy sites.

DeafCall sends critical alerts in the event of an emergency to those affected by hearing loss. This means that nobody gets left behind, least of all those who would not hear an alarm which many would take for granted. And for added security, it can also be set up to integrate with AlarmCall.

Not only are such provisions a legal requirement (as per the 2010 Equality Act), but it also tells your most vulnerable staff and visitors that you care about their safety.

05. Wireless First Aider Call Points

In such large sites, your qualified first aiders can’t be everywhere. That’s why time-sensitive messages must be delivered easily, either by your staff or customers.

Our Wireless First Aider Call Points send a continuous signal to pagers and two-way radios. They deliver the precise location of the alert, so your team can respond speedily and guarantee the safety of employees and visitors.

Secure Your Site and Protect Your Guests. 

By implementing the above solutions, your venue will be secure for all. And by giving your employees and guests peace of mind, you’ll promise a safe environment.
