At the end of 2020, which was overshadowed by Corona, there is positive news from GfG. With the World of Safety & Health Asia Award 2020 for its TeamLink, the company has received a significant award in the field of occupational safety. The fact that our company was awarded the prize in the technologically trend-setting and innovation-driving Asian market is seen by GfG as proof of the innovative strength of Dortmund.
The WSHAsia Award is presented annually and only takes into account products and solutions that are new to the market, such as TeamLink, which was developed by GfG last year and is now one of the first winners ever.
The international jury is made up of five renowned security experts from a wide range of sectors and industries. Their in-depth specialist knowledge and decades of professional experience ensure that the requirements of practice in particular are taken into account in the awarding of the prize.
The TeamLink is a compact, portable wireless monitor that provides real-time readings, connection status and alarm status of up to 10 G888 and G999 series portable gas detectors. This allows staff and teams to be secured out of sight. Ideally, this provides the team leader or incident commander with all the important information about each team member in an area of up to 1.5 square kilometers. In an emergency, when every second counts, relief and emergency measures can be initiated quickly and purposefully.
Jury member Victor Kwong, General Manager of Corporate Sustainability at Towngas, the company that supplies natural gas to the whole of Hong Kong, can look back on more than 35 years of experience in the fields of environmental protection and occupational safety. His assessment of TeamLink was based on the scope and clarity of the information available via remote monitoring, from measured values to man-down alarms. The design, which has already won several awards, e.g. the Red Dot Design Award and the iF Product Design Award, thus also received the highest recognition in Asia.
