Why Choose SoloProtect for Your Lone Worker Safety Protection?

SoloProtect brings to the table a tri-fecta of key differentiators: A proven device, a proven lone worker specialist and a proven emergency communications expert.

A Proven Device.

The award winning SoloProtect ID is the most widely used device of its kind in the United Kingdom and has a growing international presence with more than 150,000 in use worldwide. Uniquely styled as an ID badge, SoloProtect ID is easy to wear and discreet to use. Equipped with GPS and Auto 'Incapacitation', SoloProtect ID is the ideal device for lone workers facing potential social and environmental risk. Learn more.

A Proven Lone Worker Specialist.

Founded in 2003, SoloProtect was established with the aim of improving the safety and the productivity of lone workers. The company is based in Sheffield UK, but services partners and customers based all over the world across a wide range of market sectors.

When attending a Suzy Lamplugh Trust event in 2002 Craig Swallow, Managing Director of SoloProtect, surveyed a room of people engrossed in lone worker safety, all of whom were wearing identity badges as part of entry to the show. It struck him that a mobile communications device with a discreet form-factor such as this would be invaluable to lone workers. This idea later became SoloProtect ID.

SoloProtect continues to deliver solutions that are tailored to their user, simple to use, effective in their operation and designed to empower lone workers and an organization to operate with total peace of mind. 

A Proven Emergency Communications Expert.

We believe that the right people with the right training results in the right response. Our EDC operators are Advanced Emergency Medical Dispatcher (AEMD), CPR and HIPPA certified to assure you have the best-trained response team 24/7/365. AEMD is a higher level of certification than is often required in 911 emergency response centers. The level of both initial and ongoing training our operators receive results in unmatched preparation to professionally respond to any emergency call.

In addition to having a highly trained staff, the dispatch center uses sophisticated hardware and automation software to digitally record, date and time stamp each call which may be replayed on request and emailed as.WAV files for company records or to be submitted as evidence in a dispute. The EDC is a state of the art dispatch center employing redundant power, telephone, server and data backup systems and a fully redundant emergency backup center. Learn more.

SoloProtect provides workplace safety solutions specifically geared for lone working individuals. SoloProtect solutions are different in that they allow for the discreet summoning of help when employees feel at risk, so as not to unnecessarily escalate a situation. Another key differentiator, unique to SoloProtect and not offered by other companies advertising lone workers safety solutions, such as Grace Industries lone worker safety, Guardian24 lone worker protection, ApartmentGuardian working safety, Blackline GPS lone worker solutions, or SafetyLine, is the Yellow Alert function. This function helps to augment GPS location information which can be vague, inaccurate or simply insufficient when seconds count, such as in the case of a worker being in a multi-story or large building. Yellow alert allows SoloProtect users to record a 30-second message providing exact location details, such as floor and room number, as well as any situationally important information. Other solutions are currently relying on GPS alone.  

As an industry leader, we appreciate that lone worker safety is a diverse topic with more to consider than just the specifics of a device-based solution and so additionally offer expertise in lone worker policy, dynamic risk assessment and effective training for lone workers and lone worker managers.
