Waterproof Rugged Phone With Built-in Lone Worker Protection

Sonim : 29 November, 2010  (New Product)
Cooperation between Sonim Technologies and SafeLinQ results in highly rugged mobile phone with bundled application for the protection of lone and vulnerable workers
Sonim and SafeLinQ UK have announced a partnership that has life-saving potential for the thousands of workers in high risk and extreme environments. Together, the companies will deliver the Sonim XP3 Sentinel ultra-rugged GSM phone to the UK market, offering maximum security and safety to lone workers

In the UK, it is estimated that 6.8 million people are employed in lone worker roles and yet few of those workers experience the same level of protection as other staff in supervised team environments. SafeLinQ works with organisations across a range of industries including security, oil and gas and transport, developing lone worker safety solutions that ensure they receive the same duty of care as those who work in more conventional industries.

The Sonim XP3 Sentinel is ideal for use in markets where lone workers operate, such as:

Security: Security officers are at risk of criminal encounters during their remote security rounds. They need a rugged life line with the Emergency Response Centre to keep them safe. The XP3 Sentinel's red alarm button and integrated man-down sensor detects impact, tilt, free fall and non-movement and pro-actively sends an alarm signal to the Emergency Response Centre for fast response in case of danger. The phone also has an amber button to activate advanced monitoring when going into a hazardous area, and a green button to indicate the beginning or end of a working shift.

Emergency Services: The XP3 Sentinel provides a dual solution to emergency services through helping them coordinate their own teams through push to talk communication and ensuring those that need help are located and seen to as soon as possible. The XP3 Sentinel and SafeLinQ's location service are an example of employers doing their part to ensure the safety of their workers and removing unnecessary obstacles for the emergency services to do their jobs.

One such customer that benefitted from SafeLinQ's lone worker solutions is Skanska, one of the world's leading construction groups. Paul Thompson, Senior Health and Safety Manager at Skanska said:

"We are pleased with SafeLinQ and the solution that they have created. We are now able to provide a reliable and efficient means of supporting our lone workers, giving them peace of mind and us the ability to secure their safety, which is part of our duty of care and responsibility as an employer. We would recommend other businesses with lone workers to use SafeLinQ."

The Sonim XP3 Sentinel was built to meet the demands of the newly-issued British Standard BS8484 device requirement for Lone Worker Devices and Monitoring Stations, exceeding the duty-of-care requirements under UK Law, further reinforced in 2008 with the passage of the Corporate Manslaughter Act.

The Sonim XP3 Sentinel goes beyond extreme durability - it's fully water submersible (IP-67 rated), MIL-810G certified, ready for extreme temperatures from -20ºC to +55ºC , impact proof , resistant to dust and micro-particles and equipped with high performance GPS, long battery life, a LED torch and a 2MP camera. Moreover, Sonim phones are backed by Sonim's industry-leading 3-Year Comprehensive Warranty. The phone and full lone monitoring service is available now through SafeLinQ and their partners. Pricing varies with both the network operator plan and the lone worker monitoring plan selected.
