Send For Help Director, Will Murray, has been featured in an interview for business communications publication, Land Mobile, sharing his thoughts on what companies must consider when procuring a lone worker solution.
Will, addresses key issues including cellular connectivity, how to encourage stakeholder buy-in, various environmental factors and the importance of standards.
Speaking about the BS 8484 lone worker standard, Chairman of the BSIA’s Lone Worker Section, Will, explains how using accredited systems can save vital minutes. He says “adhering to the standard really does make a difference in terms of the speed of response because it allows you to apply to police forces for a unique reference number (URN).”
With this approach, Will says: “It works out to be about two minutes quicker on average than ringing 999, which can be the difference between life and death.”
