News: Peoplesafe secures deal with Andrew Page


Andrew Page, one of the UK's largest car parts distributors, is using the market-leading Identicom device via Rotherham-based lone worker experts, Peoplesafe.

Based in Dinnington, Connexion2 developed and manufactures Identicom, which is now the UK's most widely deployed dedicated lone worker device. It is designed to look like a normal ID badge and allows lone workers to raise an alarm, make an emergency phone call or send a text message. Also based at Dinnington, Peoplesafe work in partnership with Connexion2 to provide lone workers with the Identicom to thousands of lone workers in the UK.

Andrew Page, which has its head office in Leeds, has given 100 of its frontline staff special devices that can raise the alarm if they need help.

The devices are being used by staff at the company's main distribution centre at Markham Vale in north Derbyshire and by staff across the company's 114 branches. It is being used by people working at the 100,000 sq ft distribution centre, by branch managers and HGV drivers.

The other product, the Twig Protector, offers the same high level of protection as the Identicom, but looks like a mobile phone. It has a man-down capability, which means it sets off an alarm if the user falls over. Both devices link to Peoplesafe's 24-hour monitoring centre.

Lisa Reed, health and safety officer at Andrew Page Ltd, said : "The personal safety of our staff is a priority. Employees now feel safer when carrying out their duties in the knowledge that emergency help is only a button push away."

Ian Johannessen, managing director of Peoplesafe, added: "We are delighted to be working with Andrew Page as we know how they value their staff and their welfare.

"We have worked closely with them to provide the best possible solution for their lone workers and give them peace of mind."
