I'm a healthcare worker. Why should I choose Duress?

Healthcare professionals from all over Australia can be subjected to violence each and everyday. Their role as a care-giver can expose them to dangerous and violent situations when entering a stranger’s home.
 
In the US, a study conducted by the Bureau of Labour Statistics estimated that healthcare workers face extremely high rates of workplace violence, 8.5 times higher than for workers overall.  This is compounded by the fact that the amount of workplace violence incidents are increasing at an alarming rate, reportedly by as much as 110% between 2005 - 2014 in private industry hospitals.

In the UK, a survey conducted by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) showed that 1 in 10 nurses have been attacked on home visits. 
In Australia, 55% of nurses are working outside normal working hours and are feeling less safe as a result.

There is a negative trend forming in the the day-to-day activities of a healthcare professional - an increase in risk of potential and immediate danger is rising every day. With every shift, house call, routine checkup, it's typical of a care-giver to be sent to unfamiliar homes to care for for people they have no immediate knowledge or background of. 

Duress is the only app that can request police in an emergency in Australia. With Duress, we removed the vital minutes needed to declare an emergency through the traditional method of dialling 000. We also removed the high cost of entry that comes with purchasing a dedicated panic device (usually over $500/year) by giving healthcare workers a one touch solution that is on them all the time - their phone. 
If at any point you aren't feeling safe, you can simply tap and hold your phone's screen.  If you need Police, simply release your phone screen. 
In seconds Duress Operations is notifying the Police of your exact location and what is happening. Its discrete, can be done from your pocket and notifies the Police in seconds. 

To add Duress protection to your staff phones, contact us and we will be in touch to organise your same-day rollout.
