New FONESTAR Voice Evacuation System in Asturiana de Zinc
Recently the company Asturiana de Zinc installed a complete Fonestar voice evacuation system in its plant in Hinojedo, Cantabria.
Asturiana de Zinc is part of Glencore, a multinational company dedicated to the development of natural resources and is one of the world’s leading zinc producers.
Just as in all installations of this type, a good safety system against possible unexpected events is crucial, and this is where Fonestar’s EN-54-certified evacuation systems have proven to be a wise choice.
Evacuation systems are crucial for relaying alert messages and for preventing potential panic situations. They ensure that a building can be evacuated much more quickly and safely than with sirens or warning bells.
Numerous studies and experiments have shown that people react immediately and appropriately to an alarm when sufficient information about the seriousness of the emergency is provided. Clear and precise instructions for actions to be taken can be decisive, especially with respect to those people who are in unfamiliar surroundings.
