Lone Worker Service from WYE SECURITY SOLUTIONS
Protect your employees with our Lone Worker Service for commercial clients. Businesses such as hotels may require their staff to work alone during the night-time or low season. Others have been forced to close in recent lockdowns and have had little choice but to reduce employee numbers or operate skeleton teams. As the numbers of lone workers increase across the country, so do the associated risks.
This is where our Lone Worker Service comes in. Combining our Key Holding Services with the use of the Stay Safe Lone Worker app, our team of security professionals will be on call to assist your lone worker in the event of an emergency.
How Does it Work?
The Stay Safe Lone Worker app is available on both mobile (iOS and Android) and via a desktop portal which our customers have access to.
Lone workers will use the app to add working hours and respond to an hourly call during those hours. If they fail to respond to the call, then our nearest available driver will be notified immediately via GPS tracking software. We will attend your premises and check on the lone worker to make sure they are safe and that the building is secure.
The Stay Safe Lone Worker app also includes a panic button which will alert our team and inform them of the What Three Words location for your premises when activated. In case the lone worker is in danger, the app will record audio in the background while displaying a standard phone screen so as not to raise the suspicion of any potential intruder or attacker.
Man Down Facility
The risk of intruders and attackers is not the only threat facing lone workers. Medical emergencies can be just as dangerous when the employee is alone. Workplace accidents and the possibility of life-threatening emergencies such as choking or heart attacks need to be responded to rapidly. The Stay Safe Lone Worker app therefore provides a Man Down Facility which will alert our closest available vehicle if a lone worker collapses.
In the current climate, many businesses have little choice but to lower overheads – and reducing staff numbers can result in significant savings. Our Lone Worker Service provides peace of mind when making these difficult decisions as employers can ensure they meet the Lone Worker policy while saving as much as £20,000 per person each year.

SIA Approved Contractors
WYE SECURITY SOLUTIONS LTD holds SIA approved contractor status for the provision of Security Guarding services. The ACS Standard encompasses all aspects of a security provider’s operation. It takes a holistic view of how well an organisation is managed and an approved organisation must demonstrate to an independent assessor, on an annual basis, that it has met defined standards.
The whole team at WSS and Managing Director Andy Element worked hard to achieve the accreditation and will continue to uphold this high standard through the Security Guarding services we provide. Visit our official listing in the Security Industry Authority’s Register of Approved Contractors to find out more.
