Axon Body Workforce adapts the same life-saving technology trusted by more than 2,000 law enforcement agencies around the world for enterprise organisations, helping them protect their most valuable resources, people.

Available in the US, Australia, Canada, EU and UK, Axon Body Workforce is lightweight, customisable and integrated with Axon's real-time operations and evidence management technology.

"Public safety is about just that — people feeling and being safe in public, including while at work," said Axon CEO and Founder Rick Smith. "That's why Axon Body Workforce is so critical to our mission to protect life. It marks a new chapter in body worn cameras, built to address the workplace violence affecting frontline workers."

Every day, retail workers perform their duties while grappling with threats to their personal safety. A recent survey by Axon found that in the US, a staggering 47% of retail workers have experienced violent incidents on the job. Axon Body Workforce has been trialed by some of the largest healthcare networks and global retailers, demonstrating early success in deterrence and de-escalation. One trial retailer saw a net 53% reduction in incidents, while another reported 47% of active incidents being effectively de-escalated after activating recordings on the camera.
