Maintain Compliance & Safety in Educational Institutions with Room Alert

Schools are required to maintain various industry compliance standards, depending on their location and the type of institution. Some common compliance standards that schools need to follow include:

  • Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
  • National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF)
  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
  • American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE)
  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA

In addition to these federal laws and industry standards, schools may also be subject to state-specific compliance requirements and accreditation standards set by accrediting bodies. Public schools, colleges, universities and other educational institutions are responsible for the safety and well-being of their students, staff, and visitors. With today’s regulations and industry standards stricter than ever before, it has become essential for schools to invest in the proper systems to meet compliance requirements. Environment monitoring with Room Alert is the most effective and comprehensive tool for maintaining industry compliance while preventing costly environmental damage. Room Alert provides peace of mind by protecting people, property, and productivity.

Room Alert is an advanced and secure ecosystem of monitors, sensors, accessories and software that is designed to provide users with real-time alerts and notifications for a wide range of environmental factors, including temperature, humidity, flood, power, and more. Environmental threats account for 30% of unplanned outages and can quickly jeopardize your industry compliance or lead to irreversible disaster. Room Alert utilizes innovative technology that has been trusted by educational institutions for years to meet their industry compliance standards and prevent costly environmental outages that can disrupt operations and negatively impact the safety and well-being of students and staff.

For example, ASHRAE sets standards for indoor air quality, temperature, and humidity in schools and colleges. OSHA also requires educational institutions to provide a safe and healthy working environment for their employees. Meeting compliance standards can be challenging for educational institutions, particularly those with older buildings or limited resources. Room Alert is an award-winning, easy-to-install solution that can promptly alert staff via text, email or mobile notification to an unexpected power outage, HVAC system failure, a leaking pipe and a plethora of other issues that can pose a safety risk to students and staff. With Room Alert acting as your reliable eyes on-site, you can stay in the know. Once you’ve been alerted to a potential concern, you and your team can respond as quickly as possible and begin taking corrective action before a bad situation gets worse.

Room Alert is a highly valuable investment that will pay for itself after just one instance of saving your school from environmental damage. Environment monitoring with Room Alert increases your school’s efficiency and productivity, as staff can focus on their core responsibilities rather than overseeing environmental conditions. Even with 99% uptime, that 1% of annual unplanned outages could cost thousands of dollars in lost revenue and productivity. Instead of asking yourself if you can afford to have Room Alert, ask yourself if you can afford to not have Room Alert. Whether you are mandated to comply with industry regulations or want to protect your students, staff and reputation, you need Room Alert environment monitoring. Room Alert has schools and educational institutions covered!
