A multi-level alarm system for conflicts and threats at the workplace. All employees are increasingly confronted by an increasing number of attacks and threats by customers. The manifestations of violence with which co-workers are confronted with especially in the public sector cover a wide spectrum. They extend from simple abusive language, shouting and insults, to throwing objects and rioting, to violence and bomb threats, which require the intervention of specialized police units.
In various organizations working with dangerous machines and raw materials require a comprehensive occupational safety program. Besides minimizing the
dangers in the work place a rapid alarm warning of dangers contributes to the security and well-being of the work force. The dangers are many and varied:
acid, heat, gases, chemicals, high voltage or mechanical stress
These dangers are responsible for thousands of deaths daily according to the “International Labor Organization (ILO)“.
Even experienced and skilled workers can get into a threatening situation which requires the support of backup personnel. Sometimes it is necessary to call in colleagues, superiors or security personnel in order to keep up one’s ability to act in a dilemma. The possibilities to set off an alarm in an emergency or to disseminate the necessary safety and security measures by way of the corresponding recommendations for behavior is set up in a multi-level alarm system.
For the work area the danger levels can be divided into 4 categories:
Level 0: normal and/or controversial conversational situations
Level 1: verbal Aggression, inappropriate social behavior, property damage
Level 2: physical violence, unmistakable threat / duress
Level 3: use of weapons/tools, bomb threat, going crazy, a hostage situation, an attack, etc.
Depending on the danger level the multi-level alarm system should prescribe various codes of conduct and inform the designated personnel:
In conflict situations (Level 0 & 1 ) notify the colleagues in order to generate awareness.
In dangerous situations (Level 2 & 3) keep colleagues away from the scene of the action and notify specific emergency personnel.
