G4S Partners with Duress to Revolutionise Frontline Worker Safety

G4S, the global leader in security solutions, proudly announces an exclusive partnership with Australian safety technology company Duress.com. This collaboration aims to enhance the protection of frontline staff across multiple sectors, utilising Duress’s cutting-edge wearable devices. This partnership is set to elevate safety standards and provide unparalleled support to workers facing increasing threats of violence and anti-social behaviour by connecting frontline staff and security officers.

Transformative Technology for Frontline Worker Protection.

Duress has developed an advanced suite of body-worn devices designed to provide real-time support and protection for frontline workers. The technology includes live-streaming video, AI capabilities, emergency service integration and full communication functions, ensuring that help is always just a click away. The three flagship products in this range – Phoenix, Falcon, and Eagle – offer versatile and robust solutions tailored to meet diverse operational needs.

Phoenix: Compact and Powerful

At the size and weight of a credit card,  Phoenix is the most advanced safety device ever designed. Users simply click to discreetly alert security teams, or stream video through to the 24/7 Operations centre where a response can be coordinated.  Phoenix also includes slip, trip, and fall detection, mass messaging, and boasts a two year rechargeable battery. 

Falcon: Versatility and Immediate Response

Similar in size to a smart watch, the Falcon can be worn as a watch or pendant, and when activated live-streams video, audio, and location data to the security team, enabling rapid and informed responses. Additional features include a push-to-talk function and AI-driven policy lookup, enhancing both communication and procedural compliance during incidents. 

Eagle: Full-Featured and Robust

The Eagle device stands out with its fully-featured design, delivering live video and audio feeds to all connected security personnel during emergencies. Its long battery life, easy-to-use clip options, and integration with other Duress devices ensure seamless operation. The Eagle also supports comprehensive incident reporting and data analysis, aiding in both immediate response and long-term safety planning

A Commitment to Safety

G4S’s collaboration with Duress underscores a shared commitment to safeguarding frontline workers, doubling down on the G4S vision of connected security programmes. The partnership leverages Duress’s expertise in wearable technology and G4S’s extensive security infrastructure, ushering in a new era of enhanced protection and support for employees in retail, healthcare, events, and beyond.

Comments David Munnery of G4S: “While many of our security officers are already connected via body-worn devices to the broader team and remote monitoring centres, this new partnership with Duress will equip G4S security teams with real-time incident visuals and sound, as well as many other features, which will further advance the effectiveness of our security officers.”
