Lone Worker Solutions (LWS) is thrilled to announce that it has been awarded a five-year contract to protect lone workers at Valunation. Our SOS Fob devices will provide protection to 80 of the company’s surveyors who work alone or out-of-sight of colleagues, using our proprietary Safe Hub lone worker protection system.
Safe Hub protects Valunation’s surveyors
Valunation operates across the UK to offer residential property valuations, building surveys and other property-related services to businesses and personal customers. It is one of the UK’s largest independently owned residential surveying companies, and has a strong team of Chartered Surveyors who combine extensive experience and expertise with detailed local knowledge. These surveyors are often working alone and remotely, and will sometimes require a level of emergency or reactive support, which the SOS Fob provides.
Safe Hub is BS8484:2016 Gold certified, and uses the latest in communication technologies to connect lone workers via dedicated devices and user-friendly apps to a state-of-the-art Alarm Receiving Centre, Mitec. As well as working across smartphone and computer apps, the feature-rich system uses the widest possible range of dedicated devices, including the specially designed pocket-sized SOS Fob.
Valunation chose SOS Fob as the device to be used by its surveyors for a number of key reasons. SOS Fob is lightweight, compact, waterproof and discreet. It features a prominent SOS button with high-quality 2-way audio, which allows users to speak with operatives at the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). In the event that the user falls or suffers a collision, built-in motion and shock sensors can automatically raise an alert with the ARC. The SOS Fob is user-friendly and convenient, and features a long standby time, rechargeable battery, and micro USB charger.
