Alarm Response Policy Affects Users of Lone Worker Devices

Argyll : 09 February, 2010  (Technical Article)
Argyll has prepared some briefing notes for users of Lone Worker Alarm Systems to explain the implications of the BS8484 standard regarding the incorporation of this within the Police Alarms Response Policy
Following the recent publication of the new lone worker standard BS8484, the Association of Chief Police Officers for England, Wales and Northern Ireland (ACPO) have confirmed that the standard has been included within its recently amended Alarms Response Policy that restricts police response to only those service providers operating in compliance.

ACPO will now begin a series of national police trials commencing on 1st February 2010 with a small number of lone worker service providers complying with the policy. Argyll, the UK's leader in lone worker protection services, is pleased to announce that it will participate.

The trials are designed to enable police to assess the volume, quality and the impact of alarms raised through lone worker devices and services on national police resources. The trials will last for up to 12 months to enable ACPO to collect sufficient data and the results will inevitably test the effectiveness of the service provider and may help to shape the final version of BS8484 lone worker standard.

Argyll has prepared a short briefing note to provide employers with more information about the standards currently being adopted for lone worker services.
