WEST MALLING, UNITED KINGDOM, 09 APRIL 2018: CriticalArc has today announced that it has been appointed by FCC Group (FCC) – a leading global provider of environmental services, water management and infrastructure works, headquartered in Spain – to help develop and implement SafeZone® as a multinational safeguarding solution for all its employees and any accompanying family members while they are working overseas on company projects.
CriticalArc’s pioneering SafeZone personal protection and emergency response system is already being used by FCC as part of their initial deployment phase in three very different security challenges: for the FAST consortium to design and build the Riyadh Metro in Saudi Arabia, for all FCC projects in Egypt, and on a gas pipeline construction project in North Mexico. Based on these experiences FCC then plans to integrate SafeZone more widely and to start rolling out the approach from mid-2018 to cover all its international operations in over 35 countries.
March 7 & 8: CriticalArc’s annual SafeZone Conference for EMEA Users is on this week at Edinburgh Conference Centre, Heriot-Watt University.
This year’s event will bring together users from across the UK with other industry professionals to share their ideas and experiences, to further strengthen the existing SafeZone user community, and to help provide new insights to guide future product developments.
CriticalArc’s two co-founders, Glenn Farrant, CEO and Jahmai Lay, CTO will join the conference to update delegates on current and planned SafeZone developments, to facilitate workshops and group discussions, and to gain more detailed customer feedback.
This year’s main sponsor is Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, announcing a new partnership with CriticalArc.
