“Without a safe, healthy and happy workforce, UK businesses would find it almost impossible to operate. Luckily there are a host of products and services on the market to assure companies that workers are well looked after. It is these tools that have been featured in our magazine over the past year and the best of the bunch have made it onto our awards shortlist.” Those are the words of Alison Carter, editor of Tomorrow’s Health and Safety magazine.
“While we wouldn’t normally shout about a third place, AlarmCalm is a big solution to a big problem,” says Advanced’s Marketing Manager Aston Bowles. ‘We designed AlarmCalm to be easy to configure for any false alarm strategy, and it’s really pleasing that the health and safety market can see its potential alongside much simpler products. We’re delighted with the award, and of course with the impact that AlarmCalm has on sites that need to reduce false alarms from their fire systems.”
“False alarms are one of the big issues currently faced by fire professionals and building owners today. The FIA estimated that false alarms cost over £1billion last year in the UK alone. It was in response to this global problem that Advanced developed AlarmCalm, which we believe is the most powerful and complete false alarm management solution available,” added Aston.
Fast, easy to use and simple to configure, AlarmCalm can scale from small installations to large sites with complicated cause and effect. Focused on alarm verification and investigation delay options, it allows additional time to respond, verify or investigate an alarm. AlarmCalm uses Advanced’s new Building Area concept, which allows alarm management strategy within a building to be easily managed.
