Are you taking the proper precautions in identifying hazards for lone workers and reducing their risk for injury? If not, your workers could suffer delays in emergency response or medical assistance. Stay in compliance and help keep your employees safe with this Free Best Practices Report.
This paper examines how the increasingly ubiquitous connectedness of our IoE world can help provide public safety and justice agencies with new opportunities to meet and overcome the challenges they face.
This paper examines how the increasingly ubiquitous connectedness of our IoE world can help provide public safety and justice agencies with new opportunities to meet and overcome the challenges they face. It specifically examines this topic through applications in law enforcement, emergency response, corrections, courts, and national security, and shows how IoE can help transform agencies to better protect citizens and make communities safer. Finally, this paper will provide recommendations on strategy implementation to enable agencies to take the next steps.
To effectively respond to these challenges, public safety agencies must be able to rely on secure networks with integrated voice, video, and data capabilities. With these networks and their associated assets, agencies can obtain more timely and accurate information, enhancing situational awareness and improving response times. Cisco and our partners can help agencies obtain secure networks.
The Internet of Everything (IoE) is a continuous interaction among people, processes, data, and things. Sensors, networks, and smart devices are ubiquitous, providing a torrent of streaming data or big data. The Internet of Things (IoT), which is a network of physical objects accessed through the Internet that can sense and communicate, is a component of IoE.
Cisco is helping customers and strategic partners leverage the full potential of IoE to achieve radical results across all sectors and industries. Indeed, IoE is capable of helping public safety and justice agencies increase cost efficiency, improve safety and security, provide better response times, and increase productivity.

Federal safety regulations set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and The
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) make the importance of safety equipment in potentially dangerous
working environments clear. The stringent guidelines for emergency showers and eyewashes, however, donít
extend to the inclusion of mandatory alarm and electronic monitoring systems on this equipment.
Implementing best practices with the addition of both alarm and wireless monitoring systems is the best way for
workplaces to exceed normal expectations by creating superior emergency response procedures. From initiating an emergency response as soon as safety equipment is engaged to maintaining detailed records of when stations are used, tested, and maintained, these wireless systems can
create safer, more responsive working environments. Not only will this help ensure employee safety, it can make it easier for facilities to stay in compliance with OSHA and ANSI standards.

When a victim is in need of an eyewash or shower, a facility must already be prepared with a complete safety response environment. ANSI eyewash and shower compliance are standard measures to abide by, but is it enough for your employees? There are several best practices that can and should be implemented to exceed the standard expectations and guarantee a reliable safety response. This area that must exceed expectations by factoring for ease of use and victim comfort before, during, and after safety equipment usage.
