Lone Worker Alarms

Lone Worker Alarm Systems to Protect Your Employees & Your Property

Lone Worker Alarm

There are an estimated three to four million lone workers employed across the UK. These lone worker positions are found across a variety of sectors and include;

  • Factory and warehouse workers
  • HGV drivers
  • Workers in construction, repairs and maintenance 
  • Caretakers
  • Midwives
  • Vulnerable service workers 
  • Forestry and agricultural workers

These lone workers can often be found in dangerous or unpredictable situations where an accident could occur without anyone nearby to assist.

If the worst does happen, the lone worker could be left hurt and unattended without any alerts being sent to the emergency services or the person's employers.

Eclipse (IP) lone worker alarm systems are designed to prevent this situation by giving a rapid response to the relevant authorities if an emergency should occur.

What is a Lone Worker Alarm?

Lone worker alarms provide employees who often work independently a means of signalling for help if a serious accident or emergency arises. The principal idea is to keep lone workers safe and secure when they are out on the field by themselves.

Prime examples of this could be engineering roles or mining jobs. However, a lone worker is defined as anyone who works alone, away from other employees or managers. This could be in an external fixed facility or away from their regular workplace.

With the increase of home working in recent years, lone worker alarm systems are becoming increasingly important for employers regardless of industry. It's essential employers comply with health and safety guidance and properly protect lone workers.

The lone worker alarm can be activated using smartphone apps or fixed as a wearable device, such as a smartwatch. Once the alarm has been activated, an alert signal will be sent to an external monitoring station which the employer will have organised. You can also set the alarm to be sent directly to employers and the emergency services if you so choose.

Once the remote monitoring station has been alerted, trained professionals will carry out the appropriate actions quickly and efficiently. Eclipse (IP) can help provide you with a remote monitoring station in Glasgow to ensure your lone worker alarm system is set up optimally for employee safety.

What Are the Features of Lone Worker Alarms?

With the added effectiveness of smartphone apps and wearable devices connected to your lone worker alarm system, many high-tech features are available.

Some of the most common and essential features of a lone worker alarm system include:

  • Built-in GPS for tracking emergency incidents
  • Low battery alerts 
  • Built-in panic alarms
  • Panic buttons
  • Check-in prompts and missed check-in alerts 
  • Non-movement alerts
  • Man down alerts 

These technical features all help protect lone workers to the highest degree possible and assure the personal safety of all employees, no matter the situation or location.
