Dedicated lone worker event returns to London next month

The Lone Worker Safety Expo returns on the 15th October

The UK's one-day event, dedicated entirely to the safety and well-being of lone workers is returning to The Kings Fund, Central London on October the 15th, 2019.

The Lone Worker Safety Expo brings together a group of cross-sector, health and safety professionals from across the UK, annually. The event partners with The British Safety Council, The BSIA (British Security Industry Association) and The Health and Safety Event.

The conference will be opened by Barbara Hockey, Head of the Vulnerable Workers Team, Health and Safety Executive (HSE). As well as a full-day of varied and insightful conference material, attendees can network with a host of exhibiting organisations that deliver services supporting lone worker safety and staff well-being. Helping organisations' to meet their duty of care, to manage the specific risks presented to their workforce, and to share best-practice around implementation.

SoloProtect is one of the key exhibitors in attendance (Located on Stand K3 at the event), and a number of the team will be on hand to engage with attendees. The company has spent significant time in planning this year, for launch availability of the SoloProtect ID Pro, which was announced to market in 2018. The device, available shortly in the UK, is the first dedicated lone worker device to deliver body worn video, risk messaging, and indoor location, as part of a monthly solution package.

The ID Pro gives a wearer the ability to stream event-driven, video evidence of a live 'Red Alert', directly to a SoloProtect Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) in the event a lone worker is a victim of agression, attack or injury.

Organiser and host, Nicole Vazquez commented: “Last year was extremely well received with the level of positive feedback being overwhelming. It seems that we hit just the right note, with our combination of education and interaction”.

Craig Swallow, Managing Director, SoloProtect UK and Lone Worker Section Chair, BSIA, commented: "This is a day packed full of content for attendees, and a great opportunity to engage with the leading lone worker providers in the UK".
