According to a recent report by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), Middle East tourism and travel is set to create nearly 3.6 million jobs over the next 10 years. The rapidly developing hospitality sector, a major source of said growth, includes a significant number of team members that work alone, such as front desk employees, housekeeping staff and maintenance workers. These employees often work for extended hours in isolated areas, facing unique safety risks, due to the challenging work environment that is focused on customer service.
However, the region is making significant progress in enhancing worker safety, particularly for those working alone, as part of the UAE’s goal to provide a safe working environment for all employees. Proactive measures have been taken by the government, such as the Dubai Labour Law, which mandates that employers provide adequate safety measures for workers.
Employee Panic Button Built for Hospitality
To ensure the safety of employees, technology is becoming increasingly important. That’s where our new partnership with Wide Computer Systems comes into play. We are thrilled to announce that our Nomadix Alerts 2-in-1 safety badge, which offers a real-time solution for protecting employees, is now available throughout the Middle East. This is particularly useful in the hospitality industry, where the safety of workers is of utmost importance.
Our device features user-friendly functions that provide both workers and employers with peace of mind. In the event of an emergency, staff can immediately alert others with a single press of the alert button. The badge also includes automatic fall detection, providing an additional layer of protection.
Nomadix Alerts also measures Wi-Fi quality and security as staff move around the site, providing automatic notifications in the event of potential issues. Additionally, the device provides real-time location information, ensuring that incidents can be quickly and accurately located and addressed.
