Emergency Callout System (ECS) (ECS)
Definition - What does Emergency Callout System (ECS) (ECS) mean?
An emergency callout system (ECS) is a communication tool for immediate notification of critical events to a large group of people. Such a tool can instantly transmit information in the case an industrial incident such as might occur in drilling and tunneling operations in trenchless construction.
Trenchlesspedia explains Emergency Callout System (ECS) (ECS)
Safety is the first priority in any construction project. An emergency callout system may be used in a larger trenchless construction project to let workers know when something has gone wrong. An ECS will also notify emergency personnel and call for action from a designated response team.
Communications technology has improved significantly in the past few decades. Construction projects can take advantage of installed devices in tunnel and throughout constructions sites to spread critical information quickly in the case of an emergency.
