It would seem obvious that emergency paging systems would make a workplace safer, as something that sometimes has to deal with OSHA regulations would do. But what do these devices do during an emergency that makes them such an effective safety tool? Sure, they alert and motivate evacuation—but what is the behavioral result, besides the obvious making for the exits or acting as prompted?
Building System Solutions, your providers of sound masking systems and more, has a few of the answers below. We’ll share just how our work can impact the behavior of employees and customers in a crisis, and how their emergency benefits are far more comprehensive than they may appear at first glance.
Emergency Notification Systems for Businesses Keep People Calm
When properly programmed, and when intelligibility is paid attention to, these emergency notification systems act as a beacon of calm during a crisis, providing clear, consistent instructions on where to go and how to behave. In a situation that’s high-adrenaline and risky, such instructions can give employees and workers alike something sturdy to latch onto, so to speak.
This facilitates a swift and orderly evacuation, should one need to occur. Customers and employees can follow your predetermined action plan and achieve it thanks to your emergency warning. Such calm and clear instructions also allow for a conscientious evacuation wherein fewer accidental injuries or tramplings occur.
Emergency Notification Systems Allow for Comprehensive Action
Everyone in your company has different evacuation needs. A group stationed on the top floor, for example, will need different instructions from one that is near the bottom. A person in a wheelchair will need to know where the nearest elevators are should evacuation be required. With a personalized approach via our custom emergency alert systems, you can make sure that everyone in your building can mobilize and act accordingly in any situation.
Warning Systems Allow for Orderly Emergency Aftermath
When everyone follows a predetermined plan in an emergency situation, they’ll all end up in predictable locations, which means that everything from medical care to making sure everyone is accounted for is easy. When the unexpected happens, your emergency sound management system will mean that you’re more than adequately prepared.
