Drivers are often in a vulnerable position due to being lone workers. Your company has to minimize their risk.
Panic buttons make it possible for your drivers to trigger an alarm in an emergency situation, which can give them, not to mention you, peace of mind.
It’s a very simple procedure that can prove to be invaluable in a distress situation. While facing a threat, drivers may not be able to use their phones to call for help. But a concealed panic button can easily be pressed without being seen by the aggressor.
A panic button is like an insurance policy. You hope you never need to use it, but it’s good to have it if the need arises.
From there, depending on the settings you select, alarms will be broadcast by email and SMS to destinations of your choice.
The alarm, which is also registered in Frotcom for future reference, includes information about the vehicle, the driver, the time the button was pressed and the location where the incident occurred. With this information, you can try to contact the driver or send another vehicle or the authorities to the vehicle’s exact location.
The panic button is usually installed within easy reach of the driver without being clearly visible to a possible aggressor in the cabin.
