Legislation (high fines and imprisonment) are forcing all Persons Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBUs) to find solutions of effectively controlling and moving masses of people in an emergency.
Public and commercial buildings are larger and taller, therefore it takes longer to locate and evacuate people in case of fire, earthquake or act of terror. The building owners’ responsibility and primary Duty of Care has become more complex to ensure that workers and the public are not exposed to risks to their health and safety as a result of the PCBU’s work activities.
App-Around-A-Box (AAAB) is a dynamic smartphone application allowing for communication and access control across all types of commercial and public premises. The connectivity between users’ mobile devices and the infrastructure allows the system to be an uninterrupted life-saving and evacuation management tool by giving relevant, real-time information, assisting PCBUs in fulfilling their primary Duty of Care inside the building, saving expenses of false alarms, sharing the responsibility with the End User also storing all communication for future reference.
The independent system can be used in a variety of situations, besides public and commercial buildings also at open-air festivals, concerts and sports events to provide safety information and safe exit, prevent theft or fraud activities.
