KONE chooses Lone Worker Solutions to protect team members

Lone Worker Solutions (LWS) is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a contract to protect employees of KONE. The multi-year contract will protect some 400 of the company’s engineers across the UK, including remote parts of Scotland. We are deploying the Safe Hub mobile app, to be used on workers’ Android phones. This will provide protection when engineers are working alone or out-of-sight of colleagues, and become part of their daily safety routine.

Safe Hub provides daily protection and support to engineers

KONE is a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry. The company provides equipment such as elevators, escalators and automatic building doors, as well as solutions for maintenance and modernization. KONE’s focus is on making people’s journeys safe, convenient and reliable, in taller, smarter buildings.

Internally, KONE also focuses closely on the safety of its workers on a daily basis. That’s why they chose Safe Hub, our BS8484:2016 Gold certified, web-based lone worker protection system. Safe Hub connects lone workers to a state-of-the-art technology and Alarm Receiving Centre. The system works across smartphone and computer apps, and the widest possible range of dedicated devices.

The Safe Hub mobile app offers our full range of support features. Of particular interest to KONE is our proactive Safe Check feature, whereby workers respond to automated prompts. This will be an ongoing safety feature as part of a wider ‘KONE Safety Engine’. Of course, the Safe Hub app supports our emergency and buddy features (Red Alert and Yellow Alert respectively). And Safe Hub uses the phone’s built-in motion and shock sensors to trigger our Worker Down feature on detection of a fall or impact.
