Educational institutions have a major responsibility for the safety of pupils, teachers and staff

Education has its own challenges in terms of safety and continuity.

  • Facilities are often large and are far apart.
  • Buildings are semi publicly accessible with little (structural) access control.
  • Staff students and students walk in and out.
  • Employees work in different locations and have varying working hours and schedules.

In this complex environment, Picasse helps to ensure an efficient and ready organisation in case of incidents, disruptions, calamities and crises. And helps to structurally reduce management costs.

A campus or business premises is a complex environment for coordinating cross-company incidents and crises. Mutual communication and cooperation is essential to respond quickly. The flexibility of the Picasse platform ensures that the different organisations can quickly warn each other, get in touch with each other and provide information without the need for a joint administration.

  • Automatic direct contact between organisations
  • Stand-alone or joint administration.
  • Pairing with the different building-bound (safety) systems
  • Quickly inform everyone on the premises.
  • Flexible pairing with other call systems.
  • Multilingual support for international environments.

Direct insight into the number of care workers present

With the help of the module presence registration there is always a clear overview of the number of available in-house emergency responders. This is an indispensable functionality for many educational organizations because of the often changing occupancy (think: flexible schedules, holidays and classes in different buildings). In the event of too low an occupancy, the system can automatically send a warning message, so that the in-house emergency team can take preventive measures.

Emergency buttons for added security

Unfortunately, (imminent) aggression is still a growing problem within many educational institutions. As a result, teachers and pupils do not always feel safe. Escalation of brawls or bad news calls can be prevented by the use of Picasse’ wireless panic button. This button is linked to the alarm system and can be discreetly pressed for help. For example, an open speech listening connection can be set up immediately so that first responders can immediately hear what is going on and can jump in or reassure. An SMS and/or push message can be sent immediately with the location coordinates so that the emergency responders know where the incident is taking place.

The emergency button alarms effectively when necessary, but also passively contributes to the sense of security. In the meantime, the emergency button is regularly used by deans, lab teachers, receptionists, single workers and evening workers. For single workers, it is particularly pleasing that they can alert immediately in the event of an emergency.

Alerting from one central place

Within educational organizations, alerts are often coordinated through a central reception. By equipping the reception with a user-friendly alarm tablet, crises can be addressed quickly and adequately.
