A product for providing on-site and mobile Lone Worker Solutions.
Covey Associates (a specialist lone worker training organisation) approached Continum Group with the need to provide on-site and mobile lone worker solutions. With the advent of the “The Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007”, all organisations that employ staff are bound by a Duty of Care to ensure that all reasonable measures have been taken and are in operation to ensure the health and safety of their employees at all times.
For the first time, companies and organisations can be found guilty of corporate manslaughter as a result of serious management failures resulting in a gross breach of a duty of care.
Continum Group, via its R&D division Continum 42, has developed an on-site lone worker management system called LoneWorker:Manager, developed with the sole aim to protect lone workers on company premises. The application is simple to deploy and provides real time management information and protection, including workflow management reports.
The LoneWorker:Manager product uses mesh wireless technology to support on-site lone workers carrying pagers which report each person's location. The system can generate an alert when a user enters an area of risk, or when a user does not return from an area of risk, and can also produce user activity reports.
After only 3 months the product was successfully developed and deployed in a major blue chip organisation, and is currently being prepared for a major UK launch in November 2009.
