Support for people working alone

We offer businesses a service so they can support staff who work alone, often in different locations. Our lone worker solution provides around the clock assistance to a member of staff where ever their workplace is.

We offer businesses a service so they can support staff who work alone, often in different locations. Our lone worker solution provides around the clock assistance to a member of staff where ever their workplace is. Our Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) Location Service is monitored by Safer Runnymede, part of the borough council's community safety team. It is part of a 24 hour Telecare Contact Centre.

How does it work?

Workers are provided with a GPS location and communications pendant which can be activated by pressing the SOS button. The service is available throughout Surrey with 24 hours a day monitoring carried out by trained and accredited staff. If a device is activated by a lone worker operators can quickly identify who they are and where they are. Real time support is offered, ranging from contacting nominated responders to the emergency services if required.

What is the cost?

The cost of the GPS Lone Worker Solution is £24 per month, plus a one off administration fee of £10.00 per user.
