  • We need to know when they’re here, and when they’re gone. If someone is logged in but not actually on the property, it could be a disaster in an emergency situation. Martin Rowland, Westmoreland Mining
Emergency Mustering

Manage evacuations and ensure the life safety of every person on your worksite

During emergencies, such as cave-ins or hazardous incidents, accounting for every person on site is crucial. Savance Workplace’s Emergency Mustering system simplifies evacuations by providing real-time visibility into personnel locations. Using a paper roll call with people yelling out names and hoping for an answer, while maybe passable in a drill, are not realistic to depend on in the chaos of a true emergency. With Savance mustering tablets, emergency personnel can perform accurate headcounts in a timely manner, ensuring no one is left behind and expediting emergency response.

Westmoreland Mining Case Study Illustration

Westmoreland Mining

  • When you have an environment like a mine where safety is of high concern since lives are on the line, it’s hard to put a value on safeguards to ensure each person’s safety.
Westmoreland’s Prairie Mines operation includes six open-pit mines in Alberta, Canada. Because of the open-pit nature of the mines, government regulation require that Westmoreland keep detailed records of everyone onsite for safety compliance. Precise records of all employees, contractors, and visitors are also vital for emergency roll- call during an evacuation. By implementing its Savance Workplace solution, integrated with Westmoreland’s 3xLogic infinias access control system, Westmoreland greatly improved safety and conformance.
