This unit can consist of a main monitoring console (MMC) and a number of personal safety monitors or portable safety monitors (PSM). By integrating two-way voice communication combined with real-time telemetry monitoring with a computer database into a single system, it can communicate, monitor and analyze environmental factors that affect workers in real-time. The PAM can be either worn by the worker or placed in the space being monitored.
The monitor regularly queries the worker with audible, visual and tactile signals to which the worker is required to respond. If the response is not received with a user-defined time frame, an alarm is sounded and the attendant can take additional steps. The worker can request help at any time by pushing the PSM "Alarm" button or pressing the "push to talk" switch.
