Especially when working on a large site, you need an easy way of identifying workers and their needs quickly—especially in an emergency—and worker identification tags are the most effective way of doing this.
Our range of VitalID ICE tags are designed so they fix to the exterior of your worker’s hard hat. However, our range also includes worker tags which can be fitted to other PPE, such as boots and harnesses.
Why Should Workers Wear Emergency ID?
How well do you really know your employees and workmates, their medical needs and who to contact in an emergency? While you’ll obviously have all these records somewhere, you won’t find a more immediate solution than having every worker keep this information upon their person.
With an emergency worker identification tag on their hard hat, you know instantly their name, their allergies and important medical information, and who to contact.
It’s the ideal solution for assisting in the essential work of pro-active Health and Safety officers in all industries where dangerous situations may occur, such as construction, oil and gas, mining, heavy industry, railways, and utilities. In fact, they are suitable for all helmet-wearing industries and could even be attached to a cycle or crash helmet.
How Do Emergency Worker ID Tags Work?
Small and lightweight, the tag fixes to the hard hat using helmet-safe adhesives so it remains attached in all weather conditions but doesn’t cause damage when removed. With a design which is 100% waterproof, it also features reflective material and has the internationally recognised ‘Star of Life’ symbol, ensuring it’s easily found in an emergency.
Different variations are available, including a data window to easily display the individual’s name. When you pull the insert out, this will then fold out to reveal the emergency information which has been filled out by the worker. This can then be used by first aiders on site, or the emergency services should the emergency be so serious it requires their attendance.
However, these are useful in many other walks of life, whether you’re out running, cycling, walking the dog, or simply have a pre-existing medical condition you’ll want paramedics to be aware of in an emergency.
