Lone Worker Safety Company Enters Competition For National Business Award

Rocksure Systems : 18 May, 2010  (Company News)
Peoplesafe is in the Co-operative Big Idea competition final with proposal on improving lone worker safety
Peoplesafe, experts in lone worker safety, are among the finalists in the Co-operative's Big Idea competition and must now face a panel of judges in a Dragons' Den style final.

In the same way that competitors pitch their ideas to a panel of potential investors in the BBC Dragons' Den programme, managers from South Yorkshire-based Peoplesafe will have to pitch their ideas to a panel of Co-operative senior managers.

Dozens of businesses entered the contest to find ways to help the Co-operative cut losses and risk for its businesses and staff.

Martin Rodgers, sales and marketing director of Peoplesafe, said: 'The safety of staff is what our business is all about. We supply equipment and monitoring to keep lone workers as safe as possible.

'It's great to have got this far in the competition and we are keeping our fingers-crossed for success.'

Peoplesafe, which have their headquarters in Dinnington, already work with retailers including Argos, Halfords and Carphone Warehouse, as well as in many other sectors ranging from house-builders to social workers.

'Lone worker safety is an issue for all sorts of businesses,' said Martin. 'It's estimated there are 6.8 million lone workers in this country and their safety is the duty of their employer, whether it is the shop worker opening up early or the roofer working at height.'

Equipment supplied by Peoplesafe can be activated by the user to alert a 24/7 monitoring centre, it can locate the user and it can detect whether a person has fallen.

'It's not bulky, complicated equipment,' explained Martin. 'In fact our software can be loaded onto a mobile phone or be part of an identity badge. It really is a simple solution to a worrying problem.'

Peoplesafe's proposal to the Co-operative involves the use of panic alarms and tannoy announcements in shops.

Peoplesafe will be making their pitch at the Big Idea competition final in Manchester on Monday 17 May, with the winner announced at a charity dinner on 20 May.

The winner will be offered the chance to work with the Co-operative to help protect its businesses and thousands of workers across the UK.
