DHL deploys Lone Worker Solutions

Lone Worker Solutions (LWS) is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a two-year contract by DHL to protect lone workers in its UK delivery team. Using our proprietary Safe Hub system, the workers will access emergency, reactive and proactive support from a dedicated ProtectMe device.

DHL chooses Safe Hub

Safe Hub offers lone worker protection to delivery drivers

As a global logistics company, DHL has many workers who either work alone or out-of-sight of their colleagues. They have chosen LWS to provide support for 60 of their multi-drop delivery drivers in the UK. These drivers are often working outside of normal hours in sometimes high-risk locations across the country, so it’s vital for the company to provide protection for this potentially vulnerable group of lone workers.

DHL have chosen the unique ProtectMe, which is a powerful GSM/GPS dedicated mobile device ideally suited to lone workers. ProtectMe’s screen makes the device the most feature-rich dedicated device on the market, and DHL were attracted to three main support features.

For emergency support, a SOS button triggers the Red Alert emergency support function with high-quality 2-way audio, enabling users to speak with operatives at the ARC. Built-in motion and shock sensors provide reactive support, as they can automatically raise an alert if a fall or impact is detected through the Worker Down feature. And the screen allows users to quickly set up and amend Safe Check, our proprietary interval-based welfare check function. ProtectMe is low-cost, durable and extremely easy to use. Furthermore, the product has a long standby time, and can be carried in a pocket or a specially designed belt-worn holster.
