When visiting service users, lone workers can sometimes find themselves in concerning, dangerous or even simply intimidating circumstances. Although difficult visits are part of the job at hand, feeling scared or intimidated at work shouldn’t be. This is where we step in.
At Pick Protection, we have created a range of lone worker security solutions that are ideal for those working closely with vulnerable members of the public. Our Personal Guardian monitor is the lightest and smallest device available on the market for lone workers and the app that works alongside it is both intelligent and simple to use.
Our app allows users to “check in” and “check out” of sites/jobs so that the employee can always feel safe and that no matter what, you know where they are. The app can track you even in the area of the visit so that you can rest assured, even in more dangerous areas; help is only a button-press away.
How can Pick Protection help you and your lone-working staff?
At Pick Protection, we offer Personal Guardian products – an app and wearable device or, if you’re looking for a more cost-effective solution we offer an app only solution.
Monitored by Unipart Security’s UK-based NSI Gold Category II Monitored Alarm Receiving Centre, the Personal Guardian is accredited to the highest lone-working standard (BS8484). Thanks to the lightweight nature of the Personal Guardian, it can be discreetly attached to an employee’s uniform - this can be a belt loop, or even attached to a lanyard if necessary.
Providing safety and reassurance, the Personal Guardian can ensure the safety of your employees whilst also ensuring that you are adhering to healthy and safety guidelines.
How does it work?
The Personal Guardian app and wearable tech are connected to the Monitored Alarm Receiving Centre and, if your employee is in immediate danger, their location can be sent to police – response level 1.
Because of the app, there are fewer opportunities for false alarms but consistent reassurance to both you, and your employees.
