Lone Worker Security in Transport and Logistics
Protecting transport, logistics and distribution workers across the UK from attack, man-down situations, and more.
Why do transport and logistics workers need a personal safety solution?
People who work in transport, logistics or distribution often spend long periods working alone, with no one available to support them should an incident occur. They are also susceptible to road traffic accidents; physical attack if they are carrying valuable cargo; and tiredness from working long hours or nighttime shifts. They can also be on the receiving end of road rage and public transport workers may be subject to abuse.
In addition to this, SoloProtect has previously reported an incident where a John Lewis driver became stranded on the upper deck of his trailer and needed his SoloProtect lone working device to call for help. You can read more about this in our John Lewis case study.
