Creating Safer Working Environments for Lone Working Employees
LOS ANGELES, February 23, 2023 – Nomadix® Inc., a technology leader in hospitality and multi-tenant industries, today announced the availability of its 2-in-1 safety and productivity solution for hospitality – Nomadix Alerts, through Wide Computer Systems, one of the Middle East’s leading solution and service providers for hospitality. Nomadix Alerts helps safeguard isolated hotel staff from threats and harassment and offers built-in fall detection. The device also monitors, alerts and reports on the quality and security of the property’s Wi-Fi network.
The rapidly developing hospitality sector in the Middle East is a major source of employment, which includes a significant number of team members that work alone, such as front desk employees, housekeeping staff and maintenance workers. This challenging work environment with its focus on customer service, means that these employees also often work by themselves in isolated areas, late into the night and for extended hours, facing unique safety risks.
In recent years, the Middle East has been making significant strides in enhancing the safety of workers, particularly those working alone, which is in line with the UAE’s goal of providing a safe working environment for all employees. The government has taken proactive measures to address this issue, with the Dubai Labour Law, for example, which requires employers to provide adequate safety measures for workers.
Technology is playing an increasingly important role in ensuring the safety of employees. The Nomadix Alerts 2-in-1 safety badge offers a real-time solution for protecting employees. With its user-friendly features, the badge provides peace of mind to both workers and employers. With a single press of the alert button, staff can immediately notify others of an emergency. The device also features automatic fall detection, providing an extra layer of protection for staff. In addition, Nomadix Alerts offers continuous Wi-Fi experience measurement, with quality and security checks as staff roam across the site, and automatic notifications in case of potential issues. The device provides real-time location information, ensuring that incidents can be quickly and accurately located and addressed.
“With more than 25 years of experience serving the hospitality industry, Nomadix understands the difficulties HR and security teams face in ensuring the safety of their employees. With the availability of Nomadix Alerts, our partner Wide Computer Systems is better equipped to collaborate with these departments and provide a solution for hospitality customers across the region,” said Hauke Lenthe, managing director EMEA and APAC at Nomadix.
“We have seen a significant increase in interest from our hospitality customers for a solution that creates a secure and safe work environment for lone workers. Nomadix Alerts’ innovative technology provides real-time monitoring and notifications, ensuring the well-being of employees and the safety of their workspaces,” said Kamal Bhatia, managing director of Wide Computer Systems. “We are excited to announce the launch of Nomadix Alerts for the UAE market, an important program that aligns with the UAE’s ongoing mission to create a safer working environment for all.”
