Keeping people safe and infrastructure protected is a number one priority for every organisation. Knowing where your staff are can make the difference between life and death in specific situations.
During an emergency, it is vital to know who has or has not left the hazardous area. The ability to track multiple people, at speed in a mass evacuation can prevent injuries, fatalities and loss.
Improving your capabilities for emergency mustering is vital.

The typical challenges of a manual emergency mustering include: Missing personnel, personnel not following evacuation plan, breakdown in communication, and lifeboat inavailability.
Effective management of emergency evacuation is challenging. Ensuring that evacuation routines are regularly practiced, accurately recorded, and critically reviewed for continuous improvement are the basics of proper alert response.
