A cutting-edge solution

Steve noticed throughout the years that increasingly there were issues around ensuring resilience within work environments for staff nominated for fire response duties including Marshals/Wardens, Fire Alarm Investigators etc. This was due to modern working patterns and became more enhanced after the Covid Pandemic. This played havoc with H&S managers trying to ensure they had enough cover to respond safely to a fire alarm. This was the catalyst for the birth of the Marshal Eye.

May I introduce - The Marshal Eye app

The Marshal Eye is an app based solution to providing resilience. Rather than having nominated staff responsible for an area, we have flipped it around. When a fire alarm activates any staff who are appointed and onsite will open up the Marshal eye on their phone, and all the incident tasks will be displayed for them to claim.
