RFID: A smarter way to get out

Polish RFID technology company Smart Technology Group has developed what it calls the Safe and Sound Evacuation, which employs radio frequency identification technology to ensure personnel are accounted for at a work place in the event of an emergency. The system relies on passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID readers and lanyards worn by workers to identify when they pass specific locations.

Before the implementation of the Smart Technology Group’s RFID solution, the verification of people at collection points “was based on paper attendance lists and reports,” says Anna Zagala, Ficomirrors Polska’s Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) manager. The team leader was responsible for the company’s ongoing update.

At the time of the evacuation, they were used to verify the personal status at the collection point and to determine the number of missing persons.
