Connexion2 CEO Addresses Delegates at Lone Worker Safety Event

Connexion2 : 06 May, 2010  (Company News)
Using Technology To Improve Lone Worker Safety Is Only Part of The Answer is the theme of a talk being given by Connexion2's CEO at Earls Court next week as he addresses attendees of the Lone Worker Safety Conference and Exhibition
Connexion2 CEO Addresses Delegates at Lone Worker Safety Event
Connexion2 is taking a leading role at The Lone Worker Safety Conference and Exhibition, being held at London's Earls Court Conference Centre on Tuesday 11th May. The company is a major sponsor of the event and in addition its CEO, Craig Swallow, will be giving a talk to delegates entitled "Using Technology To Improve Lone Worker Safety is only part of the answer".

The key objective of this event is to provide like-minded professionals, genuinely interested in improving lone worker safety with specific and up-to-date information, which will go far beyond theory alone. The unique event has been structured to focus on lone workers themselves, managers, team leaders and senior members of staff who work within organisations where lone working takes place e.g. public sector enforcement, housing, social and health care, nursing, utilities field representatives and public transport. However, we welcome everyone who shares our great passion for lone worker safety.

Craig's talk will cover a wide range of topics associated with lone worker protection including examples of 'best practice' towards lone workers including technology, training and risk assessment. He will also give details of why capturing evidence of an incident helps the lone worker, the employer and the Police and inform delegates about the changes in Police practice towards lone worker systems and the introduction of URNs.

Craig had managed various businesses involved in GSM mobile data and has helped build diverse sales and marketing strategies for taking 'non-voice' GSM based products to market. With over twenty years experience in both the IT and GSM industries, he has worked on many 'real world' projects that have delivered benefits in both business and consumer markets. These have primarily been in the UK but have also included two years based in the USA and a further two working with cellular operators in Europe and Asia. Craig formed Connexion2 in 2003 on the back of research into lone worker issues.

"Connexion2 is focused on improving the safety and productivity of lone workers through understanding the needs of the employee, employer and other stakeholders", says Craig Swallow. "Connexion 2 provides fit for purpose solutions that incorporate proven technology, training, consultancy and support allowing our customers to provide peace of mind the right support for the mobile workforce".

Connexion2 has successfully been audited and approved against sections 4, 5 & 6 of the BS8484, the new British Standard for Lone Worker Device Services. This important standard has been introduced to improve the provision, quality and effectiveness of lone worker services in the UK and has involved ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers) and other practitioners within the security industry.

Critically the standard is also affecting a change of procedure with regards to how the Police will respond to lone worker alarms. Currently most Alarm Receiving Centres (ARCs) escalate a lone worker alarm requiring a Police response through a 999 call. However once audited and approved against the relevant section of the standard*, an ARC is able to apply for a Unique Reference Number (URN) from a Police force in order to escalate the incident directly at a regional level, ensuring a guaranteed police response. Only lone worker services that are fully compliant to BS8484 will receive a URN from the police force.
