8453 BlackJune 4, 2013 — Spectralink Corporation (“Spectralink”), a global leader in wireless solutions for the workplace, has announced the immediate availability of Spectralink SAFE for Wi-Fi, a staff safety solution for Spectralink wireless handsets.  

With this release, the Spectralink SAFE solution is now available for handsets in both the Wi-Fi and DECT product lines. Spectralink SAFE will help solve the ever-increasing issue of safety in the workplace for mobile workers in healthcare, retail and manufacturing environments.  

Originally only available on the DECT product line, Spectralink SAFE now includes support for two new durable handsets, the Spectralink 8441 and 8453. These come equipped with advanced “man-down” duress-alarm capabilities, ranging from a user-initiated call for help to automatic, multiple alarms that detect when an employee has fallen, is no longer moving or is running, ensuring the most rapid response to emergency situations. The Spectralink SAFE solution conveniently integrates into an organisation’s existing mobile communications infrastructure at no extra cost and allows customers to immediately provide safer environments for their workers. 

Mike Lanciloti, Spectralink Vice President of Marketing and Product Management added, “Healthcare, retail and manufacturing enterprises all have inherent safety issues, from patient altercations in psychiatric and Emergency Departments, to lone worker situations in a manufacturing plant, or injury-related accidents in retail stores. The Spectralink SAFE solution enhances our portfolio of communications tools for the mobile worker to include this critical capability to help solve the important issue of keeping staff as safe as possible.” 

The Spectralink SAFE solution is enabled globally through the company’s valued network of application partners.
