As an employer, your top priority is keeping your staff safe whilst on the clock. When working with walk-in fridges and freezers without preventative measures to ensure the safety of your staff things can turn sour quickly.
The Trapped Person Alarm is rather self-explanatory, its name giving away its purpose. We have put together a list of the top 3 reasons to install a Trapped Person Alarm.
- It is easy to use.
The Trapped Person Alarm is easy to use. The control unit is installed outside of the walk-in fridge or freezer with an audible and visual alarm signalling system. With a perPersonently illuminated emergency button located inside the room if the worst thing should happen, those trapped will be able to press the button. We recommend that you place this at an easy to reach height in-case staff slip or injure themselves.
- It will keep your staff safe.
Because of its smart design, the Trapped Person Alarm will keep your staff safe. The system has a back-up battery as well as the audio-visual signals. It can be installed in up to four walk-in cold rooms or freezers within 10 meters of the audible alarm and warning beacon control board. Making it a practical option for businesses of any size.
- It will improve your company’s health and safety and remove risk.
Putting safety measures in place is never a waste of money. Warm, protective clothing, warm-up breaks and task rotations are all part of the HSE safety requirements. As highlighted by HSE, undergoing a risk assessment will help you determine what is needed for your business and if a Trapped Person alarm is a requirement. At the end of the day, it is better safe than sorry, which is why we recommend you have a Trapped Person Alarm installed.
