An innovative expansion to our ‘at-home’ Lifeline alarm service sees us now providing a retail telecare solution for businesses who are looking to protect their most valuable asset: their staff. BusinessCall protects staff or workers who are at risk in their place of work (typically front end staff in shops). Workers may be at risk from physical violence, verbal threats and intimidation, attempted robbery and much more, and it is an employer’s duty of care to keep their staff safe from harm. What’s more, staff themselves will feel more confident and will panic less and make rational decisions in an emergency.
How does BusinessCall work?
As a 24hr Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC), we can monitor an SOS alarm in any retail/business setting 365 days a year. A telecare base unit is installed in the premises, with a linked-in panic or SOS button which can placed on the worker/s’ wrist, or underneath the counter (or both) and in an emergency situation, it can be pressed and help immediately summoned. Recognising that the situation may be extremely dangerous (e.g. an attempted robbery or burglary is taking place), then we can establish protocols whereby we don’t speak, but silently listen to the situation whilst alerting the police. Additionally, code words can be set up which can be used in such situations.
Each BusinessCall unit costs as little as £2.99 per week to monitor (subject to a one-off installation cost). Volume discounts may apply.
