FallSafety Pro Banner

FallSafety Pro for Android and iOS addresses the number one cause of death in construction accidents by providing intelligent fall detection and automatic alerts via phone, email, and texts to work teams, safety managers, and loved ones.

 

After a fall is detected, an alarm sounds and the worker has 45 seconds to signal they are ok before emergency contacts are alerted. If an alarm is not canceled, FallSafety Pro triggers phone calls, emails, and texts with precise GPS-location information to the worker’s emergency contacts.

 

299,000 workplace falls lead to serious injury or death each year, and in emergency situations response time matters. FallSafety Pro is designed to speed response which can positively impact outcomes.

With the introduction of “Man Down” detection, FallSafety Pro provides additional monitoring and assistance to manage risk beyond falls, addressing emergency communication needs for lone workers, night shift, and remote workers, as well as situations of extreme heat, across large facilities, and other dangerous working conditions.

 

“We designed FallSafety Pro to address a very specific need – speeding response time in the case of a fall www. It’s use by roofers, lineman, oil field workers, framers, window cleaners, and other skilled professionals has uncovered other safety issues our solution can help address. The launch of Man Down mode further enhances protection for workers and provides employers with additional peace of mind, all for pennies a day,” notes Tidyware Founder and former Nokia and Microsoft Development Manager Philip Carmichael.

 

FallSafety Pro is designed for individuals and organizations, and the built-in Safety Dashboard provides access to straightforward and easy to use monitoring tools that make managing the solution simple for both small and large teams.

 

FallSafety Pro is available for free in Google Play and the iTunes App Store. FallSafety Service, a subscription service available online or in-app, increases the number of emergency contacts and communication methods, further enhancing safety efforts.

 

Details on plans and additional benefits are available at https://fallsafetyapp.com/.

 

Those attending the NSC Congress & Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA (October 17-19) are encouraged to visit the FallSafety Pro booth (#3304) for a demo and additional information on deploying the solution within their organization.

Change to FallSafety monitoring schedule

FallSafety monitoring schedule change We want to let you know about an upcoming change to FallSafety.

Fall Monitoring Schedule

FallSafety currently does active monitoring for falls on a weekly schedule for the hours set by an individual or organization administrator. While this method has worked for some, it does have issues for teams of people working on different or flexible schedules.

Pause Fall Monitoring

We are changing FallSafety so it is always monitoring for falls except for when it is manually paused. Manually pausing FallSafety temporarily stops fall detection for a selected period of time.

Battery Usage and Location Information

FallSafety battery usage does not significantly change with the new approach to determine when monitoring is active. Both approaches use approximately the same amount of battery. Also, as usual, location information is only shared in the event of a fall. The scheduled monitoring and manually paused monitoring approaches both have no affect on how and when location is shared. Fall alarms are the only time location information is shared.

Feedback

We realize that you may have feedback on how this change affects you, your team, or your business. Please share your thoughts with us by sending an email to support@fallsafetyapp.com.

Apple Watch Companion App

FallSafety Fall Detection for Apple Watch

The safety app that can save your life

The Apple Watch is cutting edge and now Tidyware has put it to work as part of a fall detection solution. FallSafety Pro for Apple Watch gives convenient access to the paired iPhone running FallSafety Pro that is carried in a pocket or harness pouch to detect falls. The Apple Watch FallSafety app gives you easy access as an extension to the paired iPhone running FallSafety Pro.

Fall Monitoring

FallSafety Pro watches your back when you are at height, while at work or doing projects around the house. The delightfully animated “fall guy” verifies that your monitoring system is active on your phone.

Fall Detection

Falls can cause head injuries that require a rapid response to prevent possible fatality. Since these often make a person unable to seek help, because they may be unconscious or have a concussion, fall monitoring can save their life.

When a fall is detected, a timer will appear on the watch face, counting down to a call for help.

 

Apple Watch fall detection

Fall Alarm

With an Apple Watch you can conveniently dismiss the fall detected countdown timer using its lightweight interface. If you don’t do this within 45 seconds of a detected fall the app will automatically notify emergency contacts that you need help, and will also sound an audible alarm on the phone to alert anyone nearby.
