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.
In the case of Ficomirrors, Smart Technology Group installed six of its Master 01 RFID gates, each at a collection point at which workers congregate during an evacuation. Each reader comes with four A24 RFID antennas to identify the direction in which each worker is moving as he or she passes the reader. Ficomirrors has tested the technology in practice evacuations since the system was taken live this past summer. "They do testing and practice evacuation regularly to be prepared in case of any danger," Kozłowska states.
When installing the system, Zagala says, "We were primarily concerned on eliminating weaknesses in the current procedure and streamlining the entire evacuation process. This, in turn, significantly reduces the risk of people's health or live treatment of at the time of fire."
While the technology's primary benefit is worker safety, Kozłowska notes, the technology can also be used to understand the movement of traffic into and out of a building or yard, and thereby provide business intelligence to a company. She says the system is intended for use at assembly or production sites, in warehouses and in office buildings.
