Solving A Problem
An unfortunate fact is that the need for additional protection for staff working in retail has become even more apparent over the last few years following a surge in incidents as a result of social distancing, face mask requirements and the cost of living crisis. Concerned by this surge, Tesco PLC engaged Gratte Brothers to design, install and commission an innovative security solution in conjunction with a leading manufacturer.
To vitally solve this concern, Gratte Brothers decided to adapt an existing product in order to increase its capability so that recorded video could be directly transmitted onto Tesco’s existing store infrastructure.
The cameras act firstly as a visual deterrent but also deliver the ability to record video and audio footage of incidents occurring locally to the devices which are worn on the body at high-risk sites. The solution therefore provides an immediate control to assist store staff and protect them.
