MOBILITY TEAM To help spread the word about safe evacuation practice, Escape Mobility Company has welcomed the Fire Xcape Angel to the team. All too often, building managers neglect to make evacuation plans, stating that it is unlikely that there will ever be a reason to vacate the property


CAP RANGE Following on from the success of its First Base 3 range of bump caps, Scott Safety is extending the product range to include the new flame retardant First Base 3 FR Bump Cap – offering advanced protection against burn and bump injuries to the head.

Continuing to drive innovation, the new cap is designed to offer customers dual protection. Not only does the bump cap protect workers in a variety of head bump-risk occupations, it also protects those in environments where hot sparks are generated, such as automated welding or grinding or where workers are exposed to flammable liquids that could burn the head or potentially ignite hair.

WALK ALONE Castle Group Ltd has launched a brand new system for lone worker protection. The Loner SMD has been developed specifically to address the ever increasing threat faced by people who work alone or unsupervised. This new product brings new features and connectivity so that no one need ever be truly alone at work again.


The key product in the range is the Loner SMD, which is a personally worn device that contains various personal protection features including a silent or audible panic alarm, a fall detector and a motion detector for man-down alerts. The system will also alert when its user logs on or off the system, all which can be tracked on a simple internet portal.

In the event of an alert, the user can be pin-pointed via a map-based

window on the web portal, which will also give details of the user and of the nature of the alert. This allows appropriate action to be taken to address any possible dangers faced by the employee.

in an emergency. This outlook has dangerous potential, as failure to make an escape plan or fit out the building with the necessary evacuation equipment could prevent occupants from evacuating the building safely if an emergency does ever occur.

“I’m happy to be an associated member of the Escape Mobility Team, helping their evacuation experts to spread awareness about safe evacuation,” the Fire Xcape Angel said. “We will work together to inform building managers and

employers of the steps that they should take to ensure that the people on their property are safe in the event of an emergency”.

The Fire Xcape Angel will host weekly question and answer sessions on Twitter under the #firexcapefridays tag, providing useful advice about occupational safety and evacuations.

at Scott Safety, commented: “The First Base 3 FR has been designed in partnership with some of the world’s leading companies to deliver the perfect balance of comfort, protection and user acceptance. Our customers suggested the addition of a flame symbol on the sides of the cap to help remove the uncertainty a safety officer faces when looking to see if a worker is wearing the correct protection.”

With no direct ventilation holes to minimise the potential burn risk and over-locked outer fabric to safeguard against internal ignition, the First Base 3 FR cap offers wearers the optimum protection against flammable risks. The outer cap is completely flame retardant and the entire cap is CE certified to EN812:A1, including the optional ‘resistance to flame’ clause.
