Windshield and Mirror Company Gains Evacuation Visibility With RFID
Ficomirrors is using an RFID-based evacuation system from Smart Technology Group at its Polish facility to better manage the locations of its workers in the event of an emergency.
Oct 13, 2017—
Polish RFID technology company Smart Technology Group has developed what it calls the Safe and Sound Evacuation, which employs radio frequency identification technology to ensure personnel are accounted for at a work place in the event of an emergency. The system relies on passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID readers and lanyards worn by workers to identify when they pass specific locations.
This is a common method for evacuation management across most companies, according to Karolina Kozłowska, Smart Technology Group's president and CEO. Evacuation systems are typically coordinated manually, she explains, and can generate a great deal of confusion during an actual emergency. People either visually identify and count individuals—a process prone to errors—or ask that employees scan proximity cards to indicate their locations. The problem in an emergency, she explains, is that workers may not always remember their proximity cards as they evacuate, or have time to scan them.
