Personal Attack Alarms
PA (personal attack) alarms, sometimes known as “Panic Alarms”
Doctors Surgeries (or similar) lone workers in offices, banks, small shops etc.
These are fitted discreetly close to hand in places where lone staff are working with, interviewing or treating people they may not know (or do), especially where the use of CCTV is inappropriate, such as a doctors surgery. They usually consist of a double pair of buttons, usually under a desk or other discreet place, where they can be secretly activated if there appears to be a threat, which will call for assistance. They are suitable anywhere where the risk assessment identifies that there is a risk of aggression or attack.
