Man down systems: betwen regulations and safety at work
The isolated workers safety is regulated by the D.M. 388/03, art.2 paragraph 5 and by L. 81/08, art. 43. These rules specify the employer duties towards isolated workers, who have to be equipped with suitable communication systems to get help after calling their manager or the national health service.
Man down devices can automatically detect possible workers illnesses or accidents, promptly send alerts to the reference manager or start an SOS phone call.
