News: Connexion2 help BSkyB engineer a safer workplace for lone workers


BSkyB, Britain's largest operator of digital television has underlined its commitment to the duty of care of its telecommunications field engineers by purchasing Identicom i777 lone worker device from Connexion2 in Rotherham.

Designed to look like a normal ID badge, the Identicom system allows lone workers to raise an alarm, make an emergency phone call or send a text message. BSkyB has purchased a number of Identicom i777 devices through SoloProtect for their team of telecommunications engineers.

SoloProtect is a fully managed service for lone workers delivering peace of mind to worker and employer alike. This includes the Identicom device, SIM Card and inclusive network usage, face-to-face user training, 24 hour manned monitoring and Connexion2's dedicated customer support team pre & post sale.

Robert Gathergood Head of Access Implementation at BSkyB said: "BSkyB takes the Health and Safety of its employees very seriously and, therefore, we investigated a number of lone worker devices. Our trial of Identicom proved successful with very positive feedback from our employees, who found Identicom discreet and easy to use.

"Our engineers find the device easy to use and it gives them confidence knowing that it could quickly raise the alarm quickly if their safety was compromised. We are delighted with Identicom and the service provided by Connexion2."

Now the UK's leading provider of lone worker solutions, Connexion2 was originally launched in 2004. It has grown from 14 members of staff to a workforce of 27 at their offices in Dinnington, Rotherham.
