Technology Innovation award for Peoplesafe lone worker system

Rocksure Systems : 10 December, 2008  (New Product)
Peoplesafe lone worker service wins 2008 Housebuilding Innovation technology award
It was celebrations all the way for South Yorkshire based Peoplesafe, after winning the coveted 'Best Innovation In Technology" at the 2008 Housebuilding Innovation Awards held last month at the Millennium Mayfair Hotel in London. The Housing Forum, a unique network of leaders and their supply chains from all sectors in housing development and construction, sponsored the converted award.

Beating off six other contenders, Rocksure Systems was praised for its technically advanced Peoplesafe lone worker service, which is now being used by Taylor Wimpey sales personnel throughout the George Wimpey and Bryant Home regions. The award follows the signing of a national agreement between the two companies earlier this year following a successful rollout of the Peoplesafe service by Taylor Wimpey.

Commenting on Peoplesafe the judges said: "All staff members now have a means of keeping safe, which is essential to site staff working alone. The panel also note the significance of the device with the introduction of the new Corporate Manslaughter Act".

Devised by Housebuilder magazine and the Home Builders Federation and run in partnership with NHBC, the Housebuilding Innovation Awards aim to recognise companies which are demonstrating a commitment to innovation in the housebuilding industry. They are supported by the government, which views them as an aid to raising standards.

Hosted by 'Today' programme presenter John Humphreys and attended by 350 housebuilding industry guests, the Awards recognise excellence in innovation in the industry.

Commenting, Martin Rodgers, Director of Rocksure Systems said: 'Since using Peoplesafe, Taylor Wimpey's lone staff have reported feeling much safer when working alone. Peoplesafe has now become the lone worker technology of choice by the housebuilding industry to help prevent their staff suffering verbal and physical abuse.'

Peoplesafe is designed to encompass every aspect of a company's duty of care to its employees when working alone. The service combines the six-core elements that are essential for a credible and complete lone worker solution, namely the Peoplesafe unit, operator response, tracking, training, configuration with the most appropriate mobile network and ongoing support.

With Peoplesafe workers can discretely raise an alarm, be located and receive assistance at the touch of a button. Motion sensors can detect if the user has fallen or become incapacitated and tracking systems can locate the worker instantly. A hidden microphone allows any threatening situation to be closely monitored and recorded allowing evidence to be collected to potentially aid a prosecution of the offenders
