What does your organisation do to ensure employees are safe?

gadod crtc 5182477 o

Have you ever wondered what precautions your employer has taken to ensure that you are as safe as possible when at work. In the majority of cases this will have been discussed with you as part of an induction, or perhaps the company has invested in safety training days where you have actively participated.

Well I came across the article: “UK Business Safety Week 2017,” which goes on to highlight and promote the fact that this week organisations that get involved will be turning their attention to the safety of the people on their premises . The article goe son to state:

“Fire services will be asking businesses to:

  • ensure they have taken action to prevent fires in the workplace
  • take action to protect themselves from arson
  • make sure all staff know how to repond appropriately in the event of an incident
  • work with fire and rescue service to reduce the number of false alarms.” (http://www.cfoa.org.uk, 2017)

With any organisation your employees are always going to be your most valuable assets and morally it’s imperative their safety has been prioritised. In all market sectors products and services are always innovating and that is exactly the same when it comes to peoples safety. Hence why Business safety Week serves such a good purpose educating organisations on the best ways to protect their prize assets.

So how does this apply to us here at Thinking Software?

For those of you unfamiliar with us, here at Thinking Software we develop and support Workforce Management, Time & Attendance Software. MUSTERD is a product that has stemmed from dated ways that this can be addressed in Time & Attendance and Access Control by producing unreliable roll call reports.

So like with all technology, here at Thinking Software we are proud to always been innovating with our creations. MUSTERD is simply the answer to making basic roll call dated method it should be and using more robust and reliable technology to provide you Fire/Disaster Marshals with a more accurate understanding of where people are when disaster strikes.

Need is very much the mother of invention. We have been working in partnership with Access Control Manufacturers for a long period of time and are very proud to do so. However in the event of a fire, naturally it becomes vulnerable and in that environment can be forced into being disabled. The Access Control system produces a very basic roll call report, all of which is unavailable when disabled.

MUSTERD is an evacuation system that communicates with the Cloud and provides in-time information on the members of staff present on-site. In the event of a fire everyone who is on-site within the Access Control System is made unsafe and staff will make their way to the roll call points where they will meet the fire marshal armed with a MUSTERD device.

With reference to the article specifically, MUSTERD is simply another way of demonstration how technology is helping to solve problems. The safety of your employees is always going to rank high on the priority list of any business. MUSTERD ensures that staff are accounted for effectively in a disaster situation.

So no more ticking people of on paper roll calls – if you can even manage to produce them in the event of a fire or other disaster. Using the effective mobile units the more robust devices are far less vulnerable to the danger and the fact they are communicating with the cloud means they are working in time and extremely rarely not operational.

So why wait any longer to bring this into the 21st century like you would with roles that can heavily assisted by software. MUSTERD enables your staff responsible for making people safe to communicate effectively when tensions are running high in a disaster. The technology also ensure it’s operational in the toughest of conditions ensuring you can always make people safe.

Don’t just take my word for it, you can arrange to see it in action through you’re own 20 minute web demonstration that can be arranged by calling our team on 0800 854 471. Otherwise though please visit or website for further information that can be found at:
