Skyguard’s MySOS Device Safeguards Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Trust’s Community-Based Staff

Author: Liam Collins/28 January 2016/Categories: Case Studies, Lone Workers, Healthcare

One of the UK's leading Lone Workers security companies and a current member of the BSIA – Skyguard, were founded in 2000 and are now renowned for producing innovative, well designed personal safety devices. They have recently worked with Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust (DCHS), who provide healthcare services throughout Derbyshire County. A proportion of their staff are responsible for ‘in-home’ services which are requested by a large number of patients in the area. The DCHS approached Skyguard to enquire about additional security support for their staff. 

Skyguard advised DCHS to implement MySOS personal safety alarms. These alarms are very discreet but a powerful protection resource for lone working staff who are often in vulnerable positions. When a member of staff raises an alarm, the Skyguard Incident Management Centre (IMC) will be alerted and made aware of their location using GPS tracking. In addition the trained controllers at the IMC will then be able to evaluate the situation using the two-way audio system also embedded in the alarm before referring the incident to the Police if required. All alerts forwarded to the Police by the IMC will be listed as an emergency and actioned promptly.
