Lone lab workers protected with SoloProtect

Connexion2 : 26 August, 2009  (Application Story)
Workers at a UK laboratory that works around the clock are having their safety protected whilst working alone by using the SoloProtect lone worker protection package from Identicom manufacturer Connexion2
Lone lab workers protected with SoloProtect
Determined to ensure that its laboratory personnel have the safest possible environment when working alone, Reading Scientific Services (RSSL), has purchased SoloProtect a best-of-breed protection service from Connexion2, manufacturers of the awarding winning Identicom lone worker device. A provider of science and technology out sourcing to the global food, drink, pharmaceutical, healthcare and consumer goods industries, RSSL's business is founded on scientific expertise and industry-leading customer service.

The company offers a unique Emergency Response Service to the food and pharmaceutical industry, which it provides to members 24/7 and 365 days a year. The service often necessitates staff having to work alone at night or at weekends in the laboratory to manage unforeseen product contamination problems.

Aware that its existing lone worker alarm system was inadequate, Will Jones, IT Manager at RSSL decided to investigate other lone worker devices, which would provide employees with peace of mind knowing that they were being monitored and could easily summon help.

"Our staff are often called upon to work alone at our premises at night and weekends which means they could be vulnerable if they had an accident, were taken ill or an incident occurred", said Will Jones. "We have six Identicom units, which are pooled by staff who are on call. Feedback from the staff has been very positive".

RSSL's decision to purchase the SoloProtect package was based on Identicom's ease of use, ability of employees to participate fully in managing their own safety and the unique way in which the Identicom lone worker device automatically raises an alarm if it senses the worker has become incapacitated.. Connexion2's SoloProtect combines the five-core elements that are essential for a credible and complete lone worker solution. These include the 'ACPO Secured By Design' approved Identicom, SIM and inclusive airtime, user training, 24 hour manned monitoring and unique TotalCare pre & post sale customer support.

When an employee is working alone they press an amber alert button and lead verbal details of their whereabouts, which notifies SoloProtect's monitoring centre. If the red alert is then pressed the centres' support staff can discreetly listen in to what is happening and make an assessment as to the level of support required - involving the emergency services if necessary. Should a worker become incapacitated for some reason then the 'man down' function within the Identicom automatically raises a red alert for the worker.
