Trinity College Dublin is enhancing safety and support for staff and students by implementing SafeZone technology from CriticalArc.
Through this implementation, the university aims to deliver more rapid response to calls for assistance across all campus facilities and to better assist students and staff working remotely, including those on placement overseas.
When individuals call for assistance – in a wide range of situations including those working alone out of hours, those with particular vulnerabilities and those with medical emergencies – the technology will enable responders to pin-point their precise location.

Students and staff can check-in and use the service with the SafeZone mobile app which puts them in immediate contact with the university’s support infrastructure. The technology will also make it easy for the responders to optimise response and to provide appropriate intervention in the event of an emergency.
“During this challenging time for our students and staff, Trinity is doing everything it can to ensure both the physical and mental wellbeing of everyone in our community. We are delighted to be introducing this advanced technology as part of our support actions,” stated Trinity’s Head of Safety, Dr Katharine Murray.
“It’s more important than ever for universities to keep in touch with their students and staff, to fulfil their duty of care and ensure that those who need help of any kind get the quickest possible response,” said Darren Chalmers-Stevens, Managing Director of CriticalArc. “We’re pleased to help Trinity College Dublin with a rapid implementation of SafeZone to help ensure the safety and wellbeing of students.”
