Life Safety in Financial Institutions

By using a personal duress system financial employees can discretely alert key personnel of emergency events ensuring the safety of staff and customers.

Workplace Safety

According to a U.S. Department of Labor survey, “nearly five percent of the 7.1 million private industry business establishments in the United States had an incident of workplace violence within the 12 months prior.” In fact, roughly two million Americans are victims of workplace violence every year, and those who exchange money are most at risk. While it is impossible to entirely eliminate the threat of workplace violence, in an emergency situation personal duress system can direct help when it is needed, where it is needed, and to whom it is needed.

Bank Robbery

Every year, thousands of banks are robbed in the United States. Though monetary losses are usually small, the danger posed to both staff and customers is substantial. No other security system has the ability to direct notification during a robbery like personal duress system. Not only can the system be integrated with traditional security systems, employees can use the duress alarm capability to alert targeted personnel. Applications could include the sending of discrete text messages to security guards within the bank, or the notification of bank staff in the break room not to return to the lobby.
