Lone worker alarm receiving centre gains secured by design award

Skyguard : 16 September, 2013  (Company News)
The Skyguard alarm receiving centre for handling lone and vulnerable worker alarms has been accredited "Secured by Design" by the ACPO
Lone worker alarm receiving centre gains secured by design award

Skyguard has become the first Alarm Receiving Centre in the UK to be awarded the prestigious ‘Secured by Design’ accreditation.

Based in Surrey, Skyguard’s Incident Management Centre (IMC) is the first facility to have been audited to the ‘ARC for Lone Workers’ product category, by the Association of Chief Police Officer’s (ACPO) Secured by Design scheme.

The coveted accreditation gives customers reassurance that a product has been tested to the rigorous standards set by Secured by Design, based upon the principle of ‘designing out crime’. Endorsed companies are allowed to display the SBD logo and “Police Preferred Specification” title, which indicates the certified product guarantees national police approval.

This accreditation complements Secured by Design approval of Skyguard’s MySOS personal safety device earlier this year; making Skyguard the only lone worker provider in the UK to have an end-to-end accredited service.

As well as achieving Secured by Design status, Skyguard’s IMC was also the first facility to be certified to the British Standard for Lone Worker Services; BS 8484, which includes the highest standard for ARCs; BS 5979 (Category II).

“We’re very proud to be the first Lone Worker ARC in the UK accredited to ACPO’s Secured by Design scheme” says Will Murray, Skyguard’s Marketing Director. “Skyguard has a history of leading the industry by developing innovative new products and services which are certified to the highest possible standards. With ACPO Secured by Design awarding this accolade to our IMC and devices, this gives customers the reassurance that every element of our service has been rigorously assessed by the leading authority in the industry.”

Alan McInnes, General Manager of Secured by Design added, “We are delighted to award Secured by Design to Skyguard’s ARC, which demonstrates their ongoing commitment to maintaining security standards within the Lone Worker market.”
