CALL FOR ASSISTANCE
Two (2) types of calls for assistance are available through the IMAGINE platform.
By means of a tag attached to the lamp and by pressing a button on the lamp, the worker sends a signal to the surface to indicate that he is in distress and/or that he needs help.
By means of an accelerometer in the lamp, a signal is sent to the surface if the worker loses consciousness or suffers a fall and is immobile for a certain period of time. The operator at the surface can then attempt to communicate with the worker and if there is no reply, the operator sends help. The procedures vary according to the type of lamp and the worker must be within the terminal’s coverage area for the call for assistance to be transmitted to the surface.
