When could you use the Little Green Button alarm software?

A member of the public becomes angry with customer services or reception staff

Somebody collapses and you need to call for help without leaving the patient.

A person becomes threatening during a private consultation

The Little Green Button is ideal to use in schools, healthcare, government and public sector organisations, as well as charities and any corporate organisations where staff interact with members of the public. This alarm software is designed to help keep employees safe, allows the user to request immediate assistance during, e.g, a medical emergency and can prevent aggressive or potentially life-threatening situations from spiraling out of control.

For businesses

What if you have receptionists or front of house staff? They are used to dealing with members of the public on a daily basis, however what happens if someone is rude, aggressive, threatening or excessively confrontational? Your receptionist, night porter or clerical assistant would feel threatened and therefore require immediate support from a colleague. With our duress system, help is summoned quickly, effectively and discreetly. This avoids inflaming an already tense environment and reassures staff with the knowledge that back up is only moments away.

In healthcare

Imagine you are a clinician – consultations on a one-to-one basis with patients is an everyday occurrence. However, what happens if during one of these consultations a patient suddenly becomes extremely unwell? How do you raise the alarm? Do you shout for help? Call reception or the emergency services for assistance? Leave the room (if you are able to) leaving the patient alone? What if someone becomes violent or aggressive? Do you shout for help further angering the patient? Situations like this happen everyday. Little Green Button’s duress system allows staff to feel safe in the workplace, knowing that with just a simple click on the Little Green Button icon on their desktop, help is on its way.

For government

Government agencies who deal with the public on a daily basis are particularly at risk from threatening behaviour. The Little Green Button panic alarm system for office is discreet but effective; help can arrive before an assailant is aware that a panic alarm has even been triggered. This computer based panic button is already working successfully in council offices, libraries and many other office and work places around the world.

In education

Perhaps you are the headteacher of a school. Safeguarding your staff and pupils is of utmost importance. But throughout much of the school day, one sole teacher is responsible for the safety of a classroom full of pupils. What happens if one of them suddenly becomes unwell? An epileptic seizure, for example, requires immediate medical assistance. How do you call for this help? Leave the room (and therefore the pupils unattended) to make a phone call? Email the office and hope for the best? Send a child to knock on the reception office or staff room door? These options are far less than ideal. However, with the Little Green Button duress alarm system, one simple click using the classroom computer will ensure immediate help is on its way. With the Little Green Button, the teacher is able to stay with their class – ensuring all pupils are safe whilst being confident that help is on its way thanks to this school panic button system.
