Why you need an emergency button for your safety?

Let’s say you are a store keeper alone at midnight. What would you do if you feared for your safety because a robber came, a suspicious person wandered around, or a drunk person stayed? You might be a victim of a robbery. You might just wait for the time to pass with anxiety.

Alarm System: Emergency button

Wouldn’t it be very reassuring if someone came right away when you are in such a situation? ALSOK Thailand offers a crime prevention system called “Alarm System”. Alarm System is a security service where security guards rush to the site when a sensor installed at the customer’s facility detects an abnormality. For instance, by installing an emergency button at the cashier of the store, you can call a security guard as you press the button and report automatically to ALSOK Thailand, if a suspicious person or robber appears. It is very assuring to have a system in place someone to come when you are working alone or in an emergency.

Service flow: Security guards to rush by an emergency button

How does this emergency button work? First, the emergency button is installed at the cashier etc. of the store (there is also a pendant type emergency button that can be hung from the neck). When the emergency button is pressed, an alarm signal is sent to the control center. After that, the monitoring staff makes an emergency call to the customer, and also reports to the police and fire department if necessary. At the same time, the monitoring staff gives a dispatch order to the security guard. The security guard rushes to the store to the safety and situation of the site.

Emergency button in Japan

Alarm System is widely used as a general crime prevention measure in Japan. In Japan, there are countless convenience stores nationwide. Convenience stores are often open for 24 hours, so there is a risk of crime late at night. In many convenience stores in Japan, emergency buttons are installed at the cash registers, or staff members put pendant emergency buttons on them. It is especially worrisome when a female staff works alone at night, but it is safe to have an emergency button.

Safety of employees

Today, it is very important as a company to create a safe working environment for employees. If we cannot create a safe working environment for our employees, we will not be able to hire talented employees. Human resourse is also an important asset to a company. If an employee is attacked and injured by a suspicious person, that’s big losses to the company. It’s important for present companies to protect their employees properly and provide a safe working environment.
