Safety in the Wake of COVID-19: How Technology Can Get You Back to Work

As mandatory lockdowns end and the American people prepare to slowly return to their normal routines, businesses across the country have become concerned about precautions they need to take to create a safe workplace. No business can survive without its workers, but an outbreak at the office, warehouse, or hospital ward can mean even more downtime and a potential shutdown. After months of slow or no business, it could be an existential threat. Not only that, if a worker or customer ends up getting sick and believes the company was too lax in taking precautions, they might pursue legal action. There can be other, less obvious issues as well. Tensions are running high, for example, increasing the likelihood of physical confrontations in offices, store aisles, warehouses, waiting rooms and hallways.


Mass Notification Simplified: Automated 2-Way Discreet Messaging

One of the biggest problems in dangerous scenarios, such as active shooters, natural disasters and medical emergencies, is communication. How do you get word to the other side of a building or campus to let others know of the danger, so everyone has time to escape or find shelter or a hiding place? Until now, primary options for communicating dangerous events – other than running down the hall in person – were phones (voice or text), email, two-way radio and panic buttons, each activated separately, by different people. The time lag, exposure to human error and incomplete coverage could be, to put it delicately, deadly.

Now, thanks to a new ability to easily combine technologies and automate plain-language mass messages, the risks of dangerous events have been decreased. Lynx’s Duress and Emergency Notification System is saving lives and it leverages your existing infrastructure reducing the costs.
