Newcastle University’s adoption of SafeZone® enables a consistent approach to security and safety across its entire international estate. During an emergency, managers and first responders now have complete situational awareness, ensuring the fastest and most appropriate response.
Newcastle University is a world-class civic university, based in central Newcastle and next door to another SafeZone university – Northumbria. The University is home to one of the UK’s top medical schools and has campuses in London, Malaysia, and Singapore.
SafeZone is a unified safety and security solution which includes a mobile app for users that is helping to keep students and staff safe, as well as NHS employees who regularly access the University’s facilities, by making it easy for anyone to request emergency or medical assistance. For example: the system was used when a member of staff slipped on ice in the car park, broke her hip and was at risk of exposure due to bitterly cold conditions
