WES REACT System to Provide Real-Time Safety Alerts

In the event of an emergency, it is vital that this is communicated to the relevant staff to allow for a swift and effective response. Sites should always be seeking to improve their emergency procedures to ensure their efficiency.

See the examples below for how one site approached this:

  • The site team worked with Ramtech Electronics to develop a new health and safety communication tool which sends information to mobiles to save time in case of a fire/ first aid emergency.
  • The project team were looking for a system that could complement existing safety practices, by ensuring all information regarding safety incidents – and responses to them – were delivered instantly and securely to the individuals that needed it.
  • WES REACT combines wireless devices on-site, cloud-based technology and a mobile application to provide real-time alerts in the event of fire, medical alert, and similar site alarms.
  • In the event of an incident on site, all relevant members of the project team receive instant notifications.
  • WES REACT includes call points and detectors installed around site, the cloud-based control panel and a mobile app.
  • The system was successfully trialled on this project and was officially launched at UK Construction Week in October 2017.
