Connexion2, manufacturer of the multi-award winning Identicom lone worker device, has responded to customer demand for the ability to track vulnerable workers by launching the Identicom T-Series. The T-Series has been specifically devised for companies requiring additional support in safeguarding vulnerable workers by enabling them to erect a Geo-fence or “safety zone” around a predetermined area and receiving alerts if their lone worker travels outside the predefined invisible boundary.
Ideal for lone workers in the transport, retail and financial industries to ensure that they safely reach a specific location at a precise time, the Identicom T-Series can also be used for audit tracking to protect personnel from accusations that specific tasks have not been carried out in a precise location or to highlight signs of kidnap. In addition to lone worker protection, the T-Series can be used to manage and locate lone workers for reasons of an emergency, job scheduling and planning. It can also be useful to locate vehicular based staff where traditional vehicle based tracking isn’t possible or commercially viable, for example with non-powered or restricted power vehicles.
The Identicom T- Series provides all the proven benefits of the existing Identicom product, protecting lone workers from abuse, attack or ‘man-down’, whilst incorporating the capability to precisely locate the position of lone workers at any specific time. It enables up to 1,000 positions to be data-logged and then uploaded via GPRS onto a predetermined platform.
“The introduction of the Corporate Manslaughter bill has helped focus the minds of companies on the protection of their lone workers”, says Craig Swallow, Managing Director of Connexion2. “The Identicom T-Series is yet another solution from Connexion2 to help safeguard lone worker safety. Together with a manned monitoring service such as that provided by SoloProtect, it is a critical element in demonstrating that adequate procedures and protection have been put in place for lone working employees”.
Connexion2’s new T-Series will be available shortly through SoloProtect, a best-of-breed service for lone workers delivering peace of mind to worker and employer alike. T-Series will also be available from a number of Connexion2’s premium partners and resellers. For an all-inclusive price, the SoloProtect service provides the five core elements that are essential for a credible and complete lone worker solution, namely the Identicom device, SIM and inclusive airtime, face-to-face user training, 24 hour manned monitoring and Connexion2’s unique TotalCare™ pre & post sale customer support. All solutions surpass BS8484, Identicom is Police approved (ACPO Secured By Design)
Although technology can aid an employee’s personal safety and enable them to quickly obtain help when needed, it cannot prevent conflict situations arising. Recognising this, earlier this year Connexion2 enhanced its SoloProtect service range by including a range of training and consultancy services designed to support and educate lone workers themselves, their managers or other employees in the wider organisation.
