Every day millions of workers worldwide venture into isolated places off the confines of their companies as part of their job. From technicians doing repairs to salespeople visiting customers and construction workers laboring at great heights, these people often are in situations where, if an accident were to occur, they wouldn’t be able to call for help. An innovative app by Italian company aGesic is set to change this narrative, ensuring employers no longer have headaches over not being able to guarantee this safety to their workers and the consequences that may arise from an accident out of their control.
aGesic’s app was born from the vision of young entrepreneur and founder Salvatore Carlucci. He identified the significant gap in the market for workplace safety tools. Unlike traditional devices that tried and failed to tackle this issue fully, aGesic’s app is equipped to recognize even the slightest irregularity. Solution provider aGesic states in their press release how, while other apps merely detect a fall, their app “GPS man-down alarm” can, regardless of whether the worker is seated, standing, or in a non-horizontal position immediately detect a distress situation. But it doesn’t end on activating when detecting irregularities, the app functions through many means. The distress call can also be activated by pressing the panic button or by voice input asking for help.
Safe, but not costly
Beyond being a lifeline guaranteeing swift aid to workers, aGesic’s app offers employers a cost-effective and streamlined way to achieve this all. This cutting-edge app not only can help save lives more efficiently than costly alternatives but it also fulfills legal safety regulations without incurring exorbitant expenses. Truly a win-win situation.
Compact and portable
The app’s strengths don’t end with the precise irregularity detection and low cost. aGesic’s app also focuses on ease of use. Workers don’t need to carry their phones, as they can rely on a compact and portable IoT device called mOve. The employer’s side of things is also user-friendly. Employers can effortlessly monitor worker statuses through the multi-device control panel, which ensures privacy by emitting location data only during emergencies.
In conclusion, aGesic’s revolutionary app is not just another safety measure. It’s a game-changer in the protection of isolated workers. With its technology, ease of use, and low cost the app brings safety to workers. As the need for remote operations increases, aGesic’s app is there for those who venture into the unknown. It promises to ensure both employers and workers a life at peace of mind, knowing help is always within reach. It is truly a noble purpose, we can only hope it succeeds.
