The “Safety Call” System – The answer to Disability Discrimination Compliance

Radio Communication specialist Ansur Communications has developed “Safety Call” a Health and Safety Radio Alarm System, designed to help Higher and Further Education (HFE) institutions comply with the 2005 revised Disability Discrimination Act legislation.

Utilizing Icom radios and software, Safety Call is a rapid alarm response system that directly links a distressed person to mobile assistance. When a distress alarm is initiated, a pre-defined text message is sent to the on call response officer giving the incident location and nature. This ensures aid can be directed effectively to persons in distress. All radio/alarm traffic is automatically logged for later management analysis.

Each Safety Call system is uniquely tailored to meet the needs of the client and offers essential safety features such as alarm monitoring, mandown alerts, panic buttons, direct voice communication, and text messaging.

The Safety Call system was designed to meet the requirements for reasonable adjustments to premises in accordance with the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) legislation 2005, This cost effective wireless solution minimizes disturbance to day to day operations during installation, and adheres to current BS8300:2001 and BS5588-8:1999 legislation.

From September 2005, HFE institutions have been required to make reasonable adjustments to physical features of premises where these put disabled people at a substantial disadvantage.

Additionally, the DDA 2005 amends the DDA 1995 to place a duty on public bodies to promote equality of opportunity for disabled people. The Disability Equality Duty will come into force on 5th December 2006. Source: Disability Rights Commission
