Lone Worker Protection Case Studies

One of the worlds leading universities protecting lone workers with LONEALERT

A world leading London-based university has chosen LONEALERT to provide its students, scientists and researchers with a lone working solution.

Many of the university laboratories (which are accessible 24/7) have access controls and poor visibility into them from the corridor. Even if someone chose to look through a window into the room, certain areas would not be visible.

This led to situations where somebody could be working in a restricted lab without anybody else knowing they were in there. Consider the hazardous substances being used, and any incident has the potential to go bad very quickly.

Our Protector Pro Devices (from the Plus Range) were selected – granting the device users fall detection and a panic alarm. These devices were pooled and stored on trickle charge docks at strategic locations, meaning as people arrived, they were passed on fully charged lone worker devices which they simply picked up and clipped to their belts.

As all lab work is completed internally, GPS locations were not a suitable means of locating people. Because of this, our RF Tag bolt-on was used.

RF Tags were strategically placed on each lab door, meaning that as people moved through the university and entered labs, they simply swiped the tag, which recorded their exact location and sent it to the O.W.L.

Should an alarm be raised, the device user’s location is communicated to campus security, who would then ensure that somebody who is appropriately trained (and has the correct access controls to the laboratory) could be promptly despatched to their location.
