Your Housing Group deploys Lone Worker Solutions’ devices

Lone Worker Solutions (LWS) is thrilled to announce that it has signed a multi-year contract with Your Housing Group. The contract will protect over 500 of the group’s lone workers across the UK. We are deploying our SOS Fob device, to provide protection when housing workers are working alone or out-of-sight of colleagues. The devices will become part of these workers’ daily safety routine.

Daily protection and support with Safe Hub

Your Housing Group has a diverse portfolio of over 28,000 homes across the North West, Yorkshire and the Midlands. The group’s homes range from properties for social and affordable rent, through to retirement living developments and private rental offers. Your Housing Group prides itself on providing homes which help people to live independently. With an emphasis on building and regeneration, the group aims to enable people to get on and off the property ladder.

Given the diversity of its property portfolio, the group’s lone workers have a range of different job roles with various client groups. As such, the group was looking for a flexible selection of protection features, and have therefore opted for Safe Hub. Our feature-rich, web-based lone worker protection system is BS8484:2016 Gold certified. It’s supported by a host of apps and dedicated devices, one of which is the specially designed pocket-sized SOSFob. As SOS Fob is a lightweight, compact, waterproof and discreet device, this best suits Your Housing Group’s lone workers.

SOS Fob provides support for the group’s workers

The SOS Fob features a prominent SOS button with high-quality 2-way audio. This allows users to speak with operatives at our Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). This supports both our Red Alert (emergency help) and Yellow Alert (virtual buddy) features. Moreover, the device has built-in motion and shock sensors. These can automatically raise an alert if a fall is detected, triggering our Worker Down feature. Designed to be user-friendly and convenient, the SOS Fob has a long standby time, rechargeable battery, and micro USB charger.
