The Authentic Food Company chooses Lone Worker Solutions to protect lone workers

Lone Worker Solutions is pleased to announce that The Authentic Food Company has selected Safe Hub to protect its staff team working across its remote warehouse facilities.

Safe Hub offers reactive support for lone workers in warehouses

The Authentic Food Company (TAFC) is renowned for its premium-quality frozen international ready meals and snacks. With lone workers in remote warehouses across the UK, their old and outdated panic alarm fob has been replaced with Safe Hub. The solution includes the Worker Down feature, which ensures that staff have the best technology for their individual safety requirements.

Worker Down adds built-in motion sensors to mobile handsets. When Worker Down is active, Safe Hub monitors the movement of the handset and its orientation. For example, if the handset hasn’t moved for a length of time this could indicate that a lone worker requires emergency help, perhaps after a fall or incident. Safe Hub then automatically raises an alert with MiTec, a state-of-the-art Alarm Receiving Centre and the lone worker’s location will be identified using GPS. Following individual escalation protocols, TAFC are then able to contact the worker via his or her handset. If there is no response they can then dispatch appropriate emergency services quickly to the worker’s location.

As with all our lone worker emergency response systems, all data sent and received is accurately logged to ensure TAFC’s compliance with their duty of care and health and safety legislation.

‘The health, safety and welfare of our loyal, hardworking employees is a priority at TAFC. Numerous measures and procedures have been implemented to ensure that all our staff work in a clean, safe and secure environment.’ TAFC
