Romad has launched the first Lone Worker Protection device to be truly compliant with the recently published British Standard 8484 code of practice.

"We deliberately delayed introducing Version 2.0 of the RSP-100 to ensure it incorporated all the features and functions which would make it fully compliant with BS 8484," said Lawrie Hutcheon, Chief Technical Officer for Romad Ltd. "Having invested several millions of pounds over the last few years to develop an easy to implement solution, we can now claim to have the only stand-alone device which incorporates both GPS and GSM communication and tracking. Most importantly it complies with the BS 8484 specification that people carrying Lone Worker Protection devices should be able to be located within 10 metres."

Hundreds of thousands of businesses and organisations in the UK have had to take a close look at their Health & Safety policies since the introduction of the Corporate Manslaughter Act under which a company will be guilty of an offence if the way in which its activities are managed is judged to be a gross breach of the duty of care it owes to its employees. The consequences could be that a senior manager or Director of a company could be personally liable and could face an unlimited fine or even imprisonment and so not surprisingly, businesses throughout the UK have been searching for a robust solution to protect staff from danger.

Utilising GPS based technology which interacts with leading alarm receiving software or with Romad's own hosted monitoring software platform, the RSP-100's equips employers to know exactly where their lone workers are whenever they need assistance.

The Romad RSP-100's small size and light weight, (it weighs just 62.5g with the standard battery attached), means it can be worn on a lanyard or clipped to a belt. Simple over the air commands are used to configure the device, providing 4 pre-programmable speed dial numbers and a rugged SOS alert button. One of the pre-allocated speed dial numbers, for example, allows lone workers to leave a recorded message when they arrive at an appointment. This message is safely stored on the Romad server and can be quickly retrieved if the user is out of contact or if there is concern for his or her welfare.

Existing high profile Romad users include the Probationary Service, Primary Care Trusts (PCTs), Local Authorities, Travelodge, Dominos Pizza, and Total Oil.
