Wearable Panic Button For Employees: MadeSafe Employee Safety Devices


Time is critical in an emergency. With Enseo’s employee safety system, workers simply press a button on their wearable alarm to immediately alert designated safety personnel. Geolocation signals direct responders to the worker’s exact location, saving crucial time.

MadeSafe Personal Location Devices (PLDs) displayed both shut and open. When shut, it resembles a key fob. When opened, a red button with an exclamation mark is accessible. Instructions on the cover say "ALERT. PRESS & HOLD." The employee safety device displays a small red light to indicate active alert.

The Quick and accurate employee safety device System

Satisfies Local, State, & Union Requirements

MadeSafe, now in its 5th generation, is a localized employee safety system. Engineered to protect worker privacy, the system accurately locates employees within inches, but only in the event that a safety device is activated. MadeSafe can send alerts to, and be monitored by, designated safety personnel from anywhere.

A MadeSafe employee safety device, also known as a personal location device (PLD). It resembles a key fob in shape and has a hole for a lanyard to easily attach so as to be carried by staff easily who can then activate in an emergency.

Employee Safety Device

MadeSafe wearable personal safety devices are roughly the size of a key fob. When pressed, they send a signal to the nearest Gateways and transmit continuous location data.

Offer Peace of Mind with Employee Safety Devices

Given that 58% of housekeepers report sexual harassment and 49% have encountered guests exposing themselves, traditional safety measures often lack the ability to provide adequate personal safety for hotel employees. That’s where employee safety devices come in, offering a powerful solution that provides additional safeguards in situations where workers are alone. MadeSafe, a wearable panic button for employees, presents an immediate way to notify designated responders when something goes wrong.

By equipping employees with a mobile panic button like MadeSafe, organizations empower workforces with an instant means of communication and assistance during emergencies. Plus, fostering a culture of care and accountability not only reduces the risk of incidents. It also contributes to higher levels of job satisfaction and retention.

MadeSafe FAQs

Want to know more about how the MadeSafe mobile panic alarm system works? We’ve got you covered with this helpful list of frequently asked questions.
Does MadeSafe use GPS?
No, MadeSafe relies on a unique tracking system specifically designed for hotel settings. GPS location can be inaccurate indoors due to signal strength and other issues. Unlike a wearable panic button with GPS, MadeSafe can accurately identify the location of an alert, whether it’s in a skyscraper in New York City or a small hotel in the countryside.
Do employees need a smartphone?
No. In a high-pressure situation, users don’t have time to fumble for their smartphones to open an app and activate an alarm. That’s why the MadeSafe wearable panic button for employees is designed to function independently.
How long does the battery last?

MadeSafe batteries typically last for a full year with normal usage. Unlike other wearable personal safety devices, MadeSafe does not rely on frequent recharging to ensure reliable protection.  

How does MadeSafe identify the person who pressed the button?
With MadeSafe, each wearable panic button for employees can be assigned a unique name. This ensures that responders can easily identify the employee who pressed the button and their precise location during an emergency.
What is the range of coverage for MadeSafe within a hotel?
The coverage range for MadeSafe is highly customizable. Hotels can define covered areas to include indoor spaces, outdoor spaces, guest-facing areas, back-of-house, and any other necessary locations. This flexibility allows organizations to tailor their procedures for active alerts and covered areas to their specific needs.
Can a workplace panic button be activated by accident?

No, not easily. The Madesafe employee safety system has been designed for ultimate ease of use. The panic button is protected in an indent behind an easy-access flip cover. So, while intuitive operation is a given, it’s very difficult to push the button accidentally.  

Is MadeSafe compliant with local, national, brand, and union safety regulations?

Yes, MadeSafe complies with safety regulations at local, national, brand, and union levels. As a sponsor of the AHLA 5 Star Promise program, Enseo is committed to promoting employee safety devices in hotels. Our wireless panic button alarm system ensures real-time alerts, allowing for immediate action in dangerous situations.

How does a wearable panic button enhance workplace safety?

By leveraging the capabilities of MadeSafe, employers demonstrate their commitment to employee well-being while proactively mitigating potential risks. From enhancing emergency response times to cultivating a safer and more supportive work environment, wearable alarms represent a versatile solution for modern workplace safety challenges.
