Lone worker security expert StaySafe has announced a partnership with SPS Doorguard, specialists in providing property- and tenant-related services for housing providers. SPS will now be adding the StaySafe lone worker app to its range of response centre services for 24/7 emergency responses.
StaySafe Business is a BS8484-accredited lone worker service consisting of an app and a cloud‐based hub, which tracks a lone worker’s location via GPS and alerts their employer if they do not check-in within a specified time.
The app, which runs on iOS, Android and BlackBerry devices, includes a panic button, working session expiry and low battery warnings, GPS tracking, inactivity and duress alerts. User monitoring can be done in‐house via the online hub or outsourced to SPS.
Shirley Duffus, managing director, SPS Doorguard, said, “We monitor many of our housing customers’ lone workers and we were keen to add a cutting-edge solution to our services. The StaySafe app is an independently-verified solution which we believe will prove very popular with our customers and their staff.”
