Chance to hear real stories at Safety and Health Expo

18 May 2015

Visitors to Peoplesafe’s stand at the Safety and Health Expo will be able to hear real life stories about how the lone worker expert helps organisations.

Peoplesafe will be hosting speakers to tell their stories at the Expo, which runs from 16 to 18 June at ExCeL in London. Among the speakers will be Sandra O’Brien from Grand Union Housing Group.

Grand Union Housing, which manages approximately 11,000 properties in Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire, turned to Peoplesafe after realising its lone worker safety systems were not up to scratch.

The results were new lone worker policies across the organisation and the issuing of safety devices to 140 frontline staff. The device, the Indenticom 877, looks like an identity badge, but incorporates GPS and an alarm button connected to Peoplesafe’s monitoring centre.

Sandra said: “The health and safety of lone workers is now embedded into Grand Union Housing and affects all aspects of working practices and procedures.

“Peoplesafe’s systems have made staff feel safer while carrying out their duties, knowing that help is just a button push away and they feel more valued by their organisation.”

As well as the speakers at Peoplesafe’s stand there will be the chance to get advice and see the products available.

Peoplesafe, which has its headquarters in Yorkshire, is one of the UK’s leading providers of simple and lightweight equipment, monitoring services and safety training aimed at keeping employees as safe as possible. Its clients include a range of major retailers, house builders and facilities management companies.

Ian Johannessen, managing director of Peoplesafe, said: “We want people to come to see us at the Expo to find out how we have helped others and how we can help them.”

It’s estimated there are 6.8 million lone workers in this country, which is 22 per cent of the working population. They range from lorry drivers and social workers to shop assistants and farm workers.

Peoplesafe will be at stand M2050 at the Expo.
