About Lone Worker Solutions
Your partner for lone worker monitoring and protection
At Lone Worker Solutions, it's our business to protect employees, managers and shareholders from the risks associated with working alone. This includes the potential hazards faced by staff who work by themselves, remotely, out of sight or earshot of colleagues, or who are in customer-facing roles.
When it comes to safety we don't believe in a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. Instead, we tailor our solution to each organisation's exact needs. We analyse lone working scenarios and risk assessments and then recommend the best solutions.
Our proprietary platform, Safe Hub, provides comprehensive features and support including emergency, buddy, reactive, proactive, broadcast and virtual barrier functions. The system works across the widest possible range of devices and apps. So you can be sure there is a perfect fit for each and every one of your lone workers.

Seamless lone worker protection, whatever the post-Brexit future holds
The UK formally left the European Union on 31st January 2020 and is now in a transition period that ends on 31st December. For individual businesses, there remains uncertainty about how the final shape of Brexit will affect them. In 2021, there will certainly be new trade and travel arrangements, although it’s not yet clear what the precise customs rules will be. Here at Lone Worker Solutions, we’re aware how this uncertainty might be affecting the organisations we work with – and their lone workers.
Brexit or not, it’s business as usual
We wanted to take this opportunity to reassure our existing and prospective clients that for us, it will be business as usual from 2021 onwards. Access to Europe’s Galileo public GPS signal and GSM technologies will remain unaffected due to treaty obligations. Our Alarm Receiving Centres (ARCs) have robust business continuity plans in place, which means that they will operate as normal come what may.
We’ll continue to meet General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements, which have been incorporated into UK law already. For some organisations, the prospect of the UK becoming a third country for data protection purposes may cause problems. At Lone Worker Solutions, all our clients’ data is stored here in the UK, so there are no cross-border data flows.
We’re also able to reassure new customers that we can maintain the supply of customer orders at agreed prices. We’re taking the necessary steps to ensure an uninterrupted supply of our dedicated lone worker devices. Due to the nature of our supply chains, we are able to maintain direct communication with our key suppliers. That way, we will ensure uninterrupted component supply.
Keeping lone workers safe in post-Brexit Britain
Whatever happens with Brexit in the longer term, lone workers can rely on us to provide them with protection and support when they need it. We know that for many lone workers, Safe Hub apps and devices have become part of their everyday health and safety practice. They can rely on us to continue to provide our full range of emergency, buddy, reactive, proactive, barrier and broadcast functions with pin-sharp location accuracy. We’ll continue to protect them whenever they’re at work – and to stop them getting into trouble in the first place.
