Lone Worker Solutions (LWS) is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a one-year contract to protect lone workers at Fasset Ltd. Using our Safe Hub software on our mobile phone application, we’ll be safeguarding Fasset’s various facilities management teams. Our advanced smartphone app provides a full range of emergency, proactive and reactive support.
Lone worker protection for property and facilities management specialists
Fasset are property and facilities management specialists, delivering managed space solutions across four locations around the UK. Fasset employs close to 150 members of staff in various job functions, many of whom work alone, remotely or out-of-sight of colleagues. The company is actively fulfilling its health and safety commitments to its workers by deploying Lone Worker Solutions’ mobile phone applications. From its housekeeping staff through to top-level engineering project management and delivery specialists, these workers will now benefit from a full range of support features.
Safe Hub for Android, iOS and Windows smartphones
Our smartphone app is designed to work seamlessly across all handsets. Available for Android, iOS (Apple) and Windows smartphones, the apps can be easily downloaded by end-users from their relevant app store or mobile device management software. The app uses a phone’s in-built GPS and GPRS technology to provide accurate location data and the fastest possible alert transmission in the event of any emergency.
The app features an SOS button which overrides the handset’s keypad lock allowing fast access in an emergency (our Red Alert feature). Meanwhile, when using the Safe Hub app, features such as Safe Check and Worker Down run seamlessly in the background without interrupting the normal function of the smartphone. For Fasset, the periodic welfare check provided by the Safe Check feature was of particular interest, to give peace of mind to its property teams working remotely. Additionally, Worker Down can provide useful reactive support feature in the event of a driver falling or being involved in an accident.
The BS8484 Gold Standard
Our Safe Hub software platform is a BS8484 Gold certified, web-based protection system. It connects lone workers, via dedicated devices and user-friendly apps on standard communications devices, to Mitec, a state-of-the-art technology and Alarm Receiving Centre. All devices held by lone workers can be managed through one interface, which is adapted to the needs of our client.
