Here at Lone Worker Solutions, our business is all about connecting people to the help they need. And in a wireless world, those connections can cross international borders. We’re very excited to be working in the USA, with a range of companies across various economic sectors. In this blog series, we’re taking a look at some North American companies who’ve signed up with Lone Worker Solutions over the last year. When it comes to US lone worker protection, Safe Hub provides a tried and tested system that gives employees and managers peace of mind.
US lone worker protection at Exelon, Aqua and Edmund Optics
We’ve got a great track record of protecting lone workers in a variety of roles in utilities and engineering companies. One of our biggest new clients is Exelon Corporation, the USA's leading competitive energy provider. It's a FORTUNE 100 company that works in every stage of the energy business: power generation, competitive energy sales, transmission and delivery. It operates through six utilities across five states and Washington DC. We’re protecting various teams of the company’s lone workers, from engineers through to support staff.
We’ve consolidated our presence in the water and wastewater sector in the USA. Our new client Aqua Engineers is a Hawaii-based provider of high-quality water and wastewater services. During more than 30 years of planned company growth and diversification, they’ve developed a reputation for providing a broad spectrum of services. Meanwhile, AQUA America provides water and wastewater services to more than 3 million people across eight states. We’re protecting lone workers in its Pennsylvania subsidiary.
We also protect lone workers in engineering companies. For 75 years, Edmund Optics (EO) has been a leading producer of optics, imaging, and photonics technology. Headquartered in New Jersey, the company operates across the USA, Canada and worldwide. We’re protecting their lone workers in a range of job functions, from production engineers through to delivery drivers.
Protecting lone working pest controllers for the Mosquito Control and Research Unit
Moving off the North American mainland, we have expanded our business to organisations in the Cayman Islands. The Mosquito Control and Research Unit (MCRU) is an agency of the Cayman Islands government. MRCU was established in 1965 to suppress mosquito populations so as to protect residents and visitors from mosquito-borne disease. The agency has been enhancing the quality of life and promoting the economy of the Cayman Islands. By protecting lone workers in the field and at MCRU’s headquarters, we’re enhancing the lives of MCRU’s employees too.
Caring for lone workers at Northwell Health
In the UK, we’ve had success at providing lone worker safety solutions to healthcare providers, both in the NHS and private sector. The US healthcare sector may be differently funded, but there is just as much necessity to protect lone workers in a variety of roles. We’ve recently signed up Northwell Health as a client. The company is New York State’s largest health care provider and private employer. A network of 61,000 healers and innovators, it's committed to changing health care for the better. And we’re committed to protecting their lone workers, from frontline nursing staff through to office workers.
In the next blog in this series, we’ll be looking at some of our other US and North American clients. We’ll be focusing on how we’re providing US lone worker protection to their employees. We’re getting them the help they need as soon as they need it – and even stopping them getting into trouble in the first place.
