How to Remove the Impact of Manual Processes for Lone Worker Protection
In a previous post we covered 5 potential impacts of adopting manual processes to protecting your lone workers. These were: the human element leading to broken processes, non-compliance and increased risk; the time factor leading to life-threatening delays; reputational and recruitment threats to your business; increased costs from layering on the security overhead; decreases in productivity and ultimately profitability. In this post we look at how to remove these impacts wit
The Problems with Manual Processes for Lone Working

The Trouble with Traditional Monitoring and Alerting Systems
Commercial solutions for monitoring, alerting and communications systems focus on lone workers, fire & intruder alarms and machinery. Many of these solutions were not originally designed for lone worker operations. Their design and implementation requires a resource-intensive approach, which in many ways hasn't changed much since the days of an actual switchboard operator connecting your calls. In this post we explore the three main problems with this traditional approach and
