Calla body camera on health care worker

The technology that drives Calla was developed by people from the very first body worn video system provider in the UK. We have been around for a long time, had first hand insight into how body cameras can positively influence situations and have brought our expertise into building a product designed to be used in workplaces.

The Challenge

Increasingly, nursing, teaching and retail staff are facing situations at work where body cameras could make a difference.

 

Offical NHS figures* reveal there are over 193 attacks on NHS staff every day in England, with 70,555 recorded incidents in one year and just 2% of incidents resulting in criminal sanctions.

How Calla Can Help

When people see themselves being recorded on Calla’s front facing screen, they tend to calm themselves down.

 

But if a situation does escalate, the user has the confidence that there is a full recording of the incident showing an independent account of events. The camera therefore isn’t recording all the time, only when the user deems it necessary - in line with agreed policies.

 

Videos recorded are stored securely on the cloud and can only be accessed by authorised users.

 

Working with Calla

We understand that setting up a new technology can be challenging. This is why we want to make sure that you get the most out of our Calla solution.

 

We work closely with customers to ensure we help set up a successful body camera programme; which includes meeting with service users and stakeholders to explain the benefits and training staff.

 

Our experience in this sector enables us to assist you in considering appropriate policies, including how long you should keep the videos for, permission settings, user roles etc. Our aim is to provide a collaborative service, to make sure our customers have the best possible experience with body worn video. We pride ourselves on building long-term, effective partnerships.
