FacilityDude has been awarded a 2015 Security Products New Product of the Year Award today in the Mobile Apps category for its application Safety Center, formerly called Crisis Plan.

The award credits the outstanding product development achievements of security equipment manufacturers whose products are considered to be particularly noteworthy in their ability to improve security.

“It is an honor to be recognized by Security Products, as we continue to give organizations a way to put safety procedures, material handling sheets, and other similar documents right in the hands of workers without the bulk and expense associated with paper-based alternatives,” said Lee Prevost, Dude Solutions’ Co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer in a statement. “Safety Center helps companies simplify compliance and maintain secure facilities, while reducing costs and increasing efficiencies related to safety protocols.”

Effective for day-to-day safety operations as well as major emergencies, Safety Center allows organizations to create a centralized repository for safety policies and procedures, Emergency Action Plans, Material Safety Data Sheets, evacuation maps, diagrams and other employee protocols.

“At the YMCA of Middle Tennessee, we are using Safety Center to make the most up-to-date safety plans and procedures available to our staff on mobile devices, whether that be a major emergency or important operational information,” said Chuck Robinson, Association Safety Director for the YMCA of Middle Tennessee, in a statement from Dude Solutions. “We can also file incident reports related to power outages and other events directly through the app which is a big time saver for our management staff.”

Available for download on Apple, Android, and Kindle devices, Safety Center empowers organizations to:

  •   Deliver updated plans, procedures, and supporting materials instantly, ensuring an organization is utilizing the most current versions limiting liability and ensuring duty of care.
  •   Push notifications to users’ mobile devices, delivering immediate access to critical, actionable information.
  •   Leverage a complete incident reporting framework, including the ability to capture photographs and GPS data.
  •   Simplify compliance with policies and regulations by providing a consistent, universally available and fully auditable solution.

Earlier this year, Safety Center was awarded a 2015 Government Security Products Govies Award by Security Products for providing outstanding innovation to the government market.
