It’s estimated that up to 8 million people in the United Kingdom are lone workers which equates to 22% of the 31.2m UK working population. Working remotely and alone is a growing trend post COVID-19 which does leave many people vulnerable. A lone worker is defined as an employee or individual who performs an activity that is carried out in isolation from other workers without close or direct supervision. 

This can include a wide variety of remote workers from those that work from home, carers, farmers to those that work through the night, it also encompasses client facing employees that spend long periods on the road visiting multiple locations. These lone workers are all exposed to a multitude of potential risks due to no-one being able to assist or support them if anything was to happen. 

We have a number of APP based solutions that can be used to help connect the lone workers to our state-of-the-art alarm receiving centre (ARC) which is accredited to BS8484 for lone worker protection and monitoring. We work in close partnership with Trackaphone to provide these services.
