Emergency procedures: GPS identification card

The safety of your workforce is paramount and a risk assessment and emergency plan should be regularly updated.

Emergency procedures should be implemented and effectively communicated to your workforce.

Below is an example of how sites can use GPS cards to locate emergency situations:

  • All management staff and resident liaison officers carried a credit card sized GPS/3G identification card;
  • This card could be used to trigger an emergency call;
  • Emergency signals were sent out when the device is push activated, giving the exact location via GPS.

This could save critical time in the event of an accident or emergency.
