“The risk of exposure to violence and threats at work is far greater than in the rest of society.
On average, 10% of employed Danes were exposed to workplace violence over the course of a year.
Females had twice the risk of males, which was to some degree caused by gendered employment patterns across sectors.”
We at ZONITH believe that safety environment at the workplace is one of the highest priority.
Our solutions are tailored to help prevent violence situations and react as fast as possible to any emergency.
Raising discreet and immediate panic alarms are crucial to be safe.
The ZONITH ID Badge accepts a regular ID card inserted on the front, as other ID cardholders do.
On the backside of the ZONITH ID Badge, a panic button is located that can be pushed discretely.
Discretion prevents escalating distressed situations further, so you can focus on deescalating the case while help is already on the way.
The ID Badge will also send the exact position of your personnel in distress, to those responding to the emergency, to save reaction time.

ZONITH’s Lone-Worker App automatically calls for help whenever you are not able to do so yourself.
The service periodically checks if you are OK, and if you do not confirm it, it calls for help on your behalf.
All you need is a Smartphone with the ZONITH’s App installed.
We know that in many working environments, it’s impossible to use a Smartphone and to confirm from the L-W messages on screen.
We have therefore made a much better solution to improve Lone-Worker safety. You can pair your Smartphone with our Bluetooth ID Badge.
Using the badge gives you an extra level of security, you can raise a panic alarm or confirm “Are you OK?” messages, discreetly without being noticed.
Your Smartphone can stay in your pocket, without making people around you suspicious.
We have launched our solutions packed, so they fit better into specific customer segments.
It’s proven to be a very successful way of selling our staff safety solutions.

Greve municipality’s reception employees often encounter impatient or frustrated citizens. At times, a regular inquiry can rapidly develop into a threatening episode, where the staff rely on being able to alert each other discreetly. In these unpleasant situations, it is often impossible to call for assistance by phone or radio.
Personal safety system
• Greve municipality employees always carry an ID card. A discreet panic button is located on the back, which employees can press to call for assistance.
• The ID card holder is positioned indoors, so colleagues in addition to the alarm receive precise information about where their assistance is required.
• For home visits, the same ID card holder is connected directly to the staff’s SmartPhone.
• If an alarm is triggered, alarms are sent immediately to colleagues and/or the security office, who can take the next steps to respond as necessary.
“The staff feel assured by the idea that they can call for help without notice. The fact that they can push the same discrete alarm both inside the office and out of office whilst visiting citizens at home, has made significant improvements to our staff security “Niels Mathissen – Risk Coordinator Greve Municipality

The jobcentre in Copenhagen, Denmark’s capital and most populated city, has consolidated most of its employment support facilities into one large jobcentre. The large, multi-story and multi-building jobcentre has many counsellors and other support staff. The jobcentre covers an area of 36000 m2, and 1100 people work there daily. The number of visitors in a day can be as many as 2000. The jobcentre has its own security team who safeguard the staff against frustrated and angry clients.
All staff members are wearing the ZONITH ID Badge with their access control card inserted into the front. Besides mounted, wireless panic buttons are in both meeting rooms and reception areas. These panic buttons combine with the ZONITH control room software become a highly sophisticated panic alarm call system. It dispatches automatically and fasts alarms to the closest security guard
Indoor and Outdoor Protection
ZONITH’s Bluetooth Receivers are installed throughout the building. The Bluetooth Receivers monitor any panic alarms from the staff while providing the indoor position of the staff in danger. The same system will also locate the nearest security guard, who can react the fastest.
To ensure staff members are safe while outside, Bluetooth Receivers have been installed in weatherproof enclosures. Should a distress situation arise outside, the staff can press the panic button on their ID badge, informing security as to where they should rush to.
This solution ensures that alarms are sent to the appropriate security guards based on their location, work schedule and competency. All alerts are also visualized on monitors in the security control room.
• Discreet alarming. Panic buttons are built into the ID cardholder of the staff, and wireless alarm buttons are attached to the underside of the reception desks and mounted in meeting rooms.
• Fast Reaction Time. Security personnel receive panic alarms within seconds.
• Easy Installation and easy administration.
• Long battery lifetime for ID badges and fixed buttons.
• Complete coverage: Panic alerting and positioning works both inside and outside of the building.
• With the positioning system, the security team will know who is inside and who has left the building, in case of an emergency.
Due to strong 2018 results, ZONITH has achieved, once again the highest credit rating AAA by Bisnode (former Dun & Bradstreet).
The AAA rating is the highest and best rank given and show that ZONITH has a sound business and a strong economy. In Denmark, ZONITH is among the only 3% of companies having the highest AAA rating.
This rating is widely used in business, retail, municipalities, regions and state institutions when seeking for a future partner. It has a high degree of awareness and at the same time signals, that we are a trustworthy, well-run and well-consolidated company, which with serenity you can trade with. The above signal values are the same, in almost every industry globally.
ZONITH is now launching the Bluetooth IO Module which is used for monitoring digital alarm input signals from 3rd party alarm panels and technical installations such as PIR sensors, door lock alarms, CCTV camera alarms, access control systems, temperature sensors etc. Basically, any signal with an “open/close” function can be interfaced to the IO Module.
The IO Module works together with ZONITH’s staff safety solutions and offers an opportunity to utilise the system even more at the same time as it enables business opportunities by implementing and centralising the customer’s alarm handling into one single solution.

From the reception, lecture room, canteen, sports hall or any other area of the University, staff can take action to raise an alarm during an emergency. This alert can be sent to the security office or closest colleagues.
Whether an alarm is raised from a fixed mounted button in a lecture room, or from the portable ID badge panic alarm, emergency responders or security personnel will be given the exact location of the situation unfolding.

Saxenhoj Psychiatric institution is located on the island of Lolland, Denmark. The institution spans multiple buildings and floors. It currently holds 300 psychiatric patients, 100 of whom live at the hospital.
Saxenhoj has been extended over the years and has a combination of old panic alarm systems throughout different buildings, a new fire alarm system from Siemens, and an old radio communication system.
Saxenhoj wanted to integrate these solutions into one platform, reducing the complexity and knowledge required to respond to emergency events. All employees at the institution required a personal, radio-based panic button, which could be also provide information as to the position of the employee both inside buildings and outside areas. Some rooms required room level positioning while others just needed positioning on the building level.
In addition to the staff panic alerting and positioning service, the new system should be able to handle patient calls from disabled patients’ rooms and be able to provide notifications about fire in the buildings.
Panic alarm system
ZONITH deployed a panic alarm system into Saxenhoj comprising of two different handheld devices. The first is an emergency response solution activated by a push button alarm on a radio handset; the second acting as an ID card holder, with a discrete panic button. Once the alarm is raised the neighbouring colleagues will be notified via clear text. The alarm text will include the name of the person in distress as well as the indoor or outdoor position of the person. This allows the response team to react quickly towards a potentially life-threatening situation.
