Peoplesafe protects vulnerable workers at Haslam Homes

Rocksure Systems : 09 July, 2008  (Application Story)
Sales staff at Haslam Homes gain protection from verbal and physical threats through the use of the Peoplesafe lone worker protection system
Peoplesafe protects vulnerable workers at Haslam Homes
Dedicated to pursuing a vigorous Health and Safety policy to ensure the wellbeing of their sales personnel, Haslam Homes has adopted Rocksure's Peoplesafe service to provide a cost effective and efficient solution for protecting their sales staff. One of a growing band of house builders now using the Peoplesafe service, Rocksure Systems is supplying Haslam Homes sales personnel in Yorkshire, Central Midlands, North east and the North West with a total solutions package that encompasses the Peoplesafe device, operator response, tracking, training, configuration, monitoring and ongoing support.

Aware that their sales consultants could face possible threat from verbal and physical abuse and be unable to reach the panic alarms fitted in marketing suites, Sales Manager Adrian Wood decided to investigate lone worker devices.

"We trialled Peoplesafe against another lone worker device and it won hands down", said Adrian Wood. "Our staff found it was easy to use, discreet and gave them peace of mind knowing that it could quickly raise the alarm if they were in jeopardy".

Haslam Homes is an award winning building company and part of the Keepmoat Plc Group. The company specialises in providing affordable, but highly desirable homes, predominately to first and second time buyers, throughout Yorkshire, the Midlands, the North East and North West of England.

"The majority of our sales staff are women and therefore the risks are obvious", said Adrian Wood. "We have received very positive feedback from our staff who are all voluntarily using Peoplesafe. Not only does it give them peace of mind but also reassures their families knowing that help is just a click away".

Now staff working alone at Haslam Homes' new developments press a 'checking in' button on the Peoplesafe device when they know they are entering a potentially hazardous situation. If they then have cause to press the red alert, operators at Rocksure's remote monitoring centre retrieves the information on their locality, listens in on the line to what is happening and co-ordinates the appropriate emergency support - involving the police if necessary.

Rocksure Systems' Peoplesafe service is designed to encompass every aspect of a company's need to provide duty of care to its employees when working alone. The service includes the Peoplesafe unit, operator response, tracking, training, configuration with the most appropriate mobile network and ongoing support.

The Peoplesafe device resembles a normal ID holder but is in fact packed with the latest mobile technology. It enables a lone worker to discreetly raise an alarm if threatened and also allows the monitoring centre to listen in and digitally record events as they happen. The device can also support the pinpointing of a worker's location using GSM/LBS technology.

The device includes a lanyard attachment that enables it to be worn around the neck as a standard ID and hides a 'rip alarm' function, which is triggered if the unit is forcibly removed from the wearer. Peoplesafe is flexible enough to be configured in a number of ways, thereby allowing an employer to adopt the device without the need to significantly change or alter current working practices.

A leading supplier of lone worker protection to the house building industry, Rocksure's customer base includes Persimmon Homes, Linden Homes, Barratt, Countryside Properties, Taylor Wimpey and many others. Rocksure also supplies the Peoplesafe service to a spectrum of other markets. These include retail workers, security organisations, sales staff, financial advisors, estate agents and maintenance staff.
