Altus Bump Up Their Staff Safety Offering

Dec 03, 2020

To help companies to ‘work safe’ during the pandemic, Altus Group has added a number of new key suppliers of safety-related equipment to their portfolio in an effort to support customers. New to the group is Tharsus with the innovative Bump system, a powerful new Personal Motion System that helps people socially distance and unlocks crucial data to keep businesses running safely during Covid-19.

Bump uses a combination of software and hardware with everything a business needs to understand, analyse and design optimal workplace practices and give people the knowledge, control and confidence to work safely.

Free-standing Bump units are positioned at each entrance and exit of a working area. Additionally workers wear a device which uses sophisticated Radio Frequency (RF) technology. The hub recognises when wearers are in the building, and automatically downloads information about any contacts their device has had with other wearers. Bump alerts wearers with sound and lights when they are too close to another person. It also gives smart reminders to sanitise hands to ensure staff are kept safe at all times.

Joe Booth, Director - Business Development and Marketing said: “Keeping staff safe during the pandemic is essential in ensuring business can continue efficiently. At Altus we understand the importance of balancing the economic impact whilst navigating safety related factors. It is this reason that inspired us to invest heavily in technology leaders who provide answers to safe working environments.

“Bump is a very important addition to our safety product portfolio and we are extremely pleased to be able to offer our customers this highly-innovative equipment. The Personal Motion System will help in educating people to understand, change and improve their movement in a workplace to keep themselves and those around them safe. We hope this newest addition will give companies another option to provide a safer environment for their employees and ensure it is ‘business as usual’.”

Bump helps with social distancing and provides data which enables track and trace, which UK Government guidance identifies as vital in the fight against Covid-19. Bump also generates information which assists organisations to adjust operations to eliminate high contact risk areas and keep people safe.

Devices worn by colleagues warn them in realtime when they are approaching two metre’s distance from one another by using light and sound. The number of instances triggering a warning are uploaded to a hub. Here workers can see for themselves via a simple interface how many they have experienced since their last upload. The platform is also an operational interface which site managers can use to understand how operational movement can be changed to eliminate risk.

Bump can be customised to suit complex building layouts and comes with a number of extra features to best fit around a company and its individual environment.
