Safer Workplace Award Received By Connexion2

Connexion2 : 02 December, 2010  (Company News)
The Identicom lone worker protection system has received the Suzy Lamplugh award for its use within the NHS Security Management System
Connexion2's award winning Identicom lone worker device has proven to be the focal point of an award-winning solution for the NHS Security Management (SMS). The NHS SMS's Lone Worker system was declared winner of the Safer Workplace Award at the Suzy Lamplugh Trust's National Personal Safety Awards 2010 held on 20th November as "the employer, which has done the most to improve personal safety awareness among staff".

The National Personal Safety Awards celebrate the work being done across the UK to keep people safe from violence and aggression. The NHS SMS topped a shortlist of nominees, which included the British Heart Foundation and Crest Nicholson PLC, to win the Safer Workplace category.

Craig Swallow, Managing Director of Connexion2 said: "I'm delighted the safer workplace award was won by the NHS SMS as they have shown a genuine commitment to lone worker safety and have displayed a thorough and detailed approach managing a complex rollout of Identicom to 30,000 community based health professionals".

In May 2009, the Department of Health announced that 30,000 NHS lone workers would receive personal security alarms. The NHS SMS was not only crucial in ensuring a commitment to lone worker safety from ministerial level downwards but also managed the complex rollout to NHS staff and played a pivotal role in helping define how and when the Police will respond to their lone workers.

Sue Frith, Deputy Head of Security Management at the NHS SMS, said: "We are delighted to receive such a well respected award. The system provides NHS members of staff with a service that they can use to signal discreetly for assistance should they feel vulnerable or at risk when working alone. It helps protect NHS staff and allows action to be taken against those who have abused or assaulted them. This helps deliver healthy and safe working conditions and an environment free from harassment, bullying or violence, in line with the NHS Constitution. The comprehensive training package makes sure NHS staff are fully equipped to make good use of this system."
