Governments and public sector agencies play a fundamental role in the wellbeing of our society. Upholding high safety standards within state organizations is nothing short of imperative. Whether it be a municipal building, town hall or an election event, Safeguard enables governments to effectively and efficiently manage the various safety facets of their day-to-day operations.
State institutions and their operational headquarters face on-the-ground, everyday safety challenges all the time. In recent years especially, governments have increased their hiring of part-time, flexi-workers tremendously. From a safety perspective, this means that it’s difficult to gauge not only the available, on-site staff members, but also the available (trained) safety workers and emergency-response personnel.
With the merging of certain state institutions and government organizations, the challenge arises of managing various staff members, both full- and part-time, between multiple locations and buildings. In such instances, ensuring the safety of workers is difficult, but crucially important.
Most importantly, government institutions, buildings and personnel are more-increasingly subjected to hostility and aggression. To have the correct safety infrastructure and alarm notification systems in place when critical situations arise can make all the difference in de-escalating a situation.
Whether it’s your busiest time of year and you’ve hired additional part-time staff, or it’s your quietest month marked by just a core team- Safeguard gives you an exact picture of how many safety workers are available at any given time and place. Not only does this valuable data assist you in the day-to-day operations of your government branch, it also assists in accurately defining the correct ratios between staff and safety-workers, ensuring a fast reaction time in emergency situations.
Safeguard’s in-app emergency button means that whether your back-office staff are dealing with a crisis or your front-of-house receptionist is faced with an escalated situation, they’ll be able to notify the right people in the shortest amount of time. No phone calls. No pager-machines. No time wasted.
The bottom line is that scenarios and working environments can change rapidly, and you need a safety-management system that is agile enough to not only keep up with change, but to fluidly move and build with it. Our adjustable checklists and pre-defined emergency scenarios mean that your safety personnel will always be able to execute their jobs at optimal efficiency, saving you both time and money.
