Real-time information application installed for emergency situations.
Apprion, Mountain View, Calif., has partnered with the BASF Corp. site in Freeport, Texas to further enhance safety, security and operational excellence at the BASF manufacturing facility by deploying the Apprion ION Mustering Application. The application provides real-time information and communication about the status of employees and contractors if the site were to have an emergency situation.
The companies partnered in 2012 to build a wireless infrastructure to support numerous applications, the first of which was ION Video. The ION Mustering Application was next on the list. In the event of an emergency requiring personnel to seek safety at designated mustering areas, emergency notification sirens sound an alert. Each mustering area has a solar-powered ION Mustering Tower-a stationary access point for real-time personnel check-in during emergencies.
The ION Mustering Tower uses a visual strobe light for notification during emergencies, ensuring it will be seen by everyone on site. Workers check in to the mustering area with their personal IONite tags, and the tower’s WiFi reader automatically updates the system that the specific person is accounted for. The automated wireless system and efficient backhaul reader eliminate manual processes and provide visual confirmation of the safety of personnel in the integrated ION Dashboard.
