Skyguard to Showcase New 'Mysos' Personal Safety Alarm at 2015 Lone Worker Safety Conference
By: PPSS Group
The MySOS which already includes GSM, GPS and Man-down technologies, has been further enhanced by Skyguard with a number of new features in an updated key-fob sized design. Fully certified to BS 8484, the British Standard for Lone Worker Devices, the new MySOS will offer increased functionality whilst still retaining the title of Europe's smallest personal safety alarm.
Skyguard's Marketing Director, Will Murray said, "We are really excited to showcase the new version of our award-winning MySOS, at this year's Lone Worker Safety Conference.
"The original MySOS has been proven in use, delivering effective help to tens of thousands of vulnerable people, whilst being convenient to carry and easy to use. The latest version incorporates even more safeguarding features but maintains the simple and flexible design which made its predecessor so successful."
Visitors to the show will be able to see live demonstrations of Skyguard's exclusive product range on their stand, including the new MySOS device, as well as Smartphone software applications.
Skyguard's products enable the user to raise an alarm in emergency at the touch of button, to their purpose-built, 24/7, Incident Management Centre. Here, trained Controllers can view the user's GPS location and registered profile information, silently listen-in, and talk to the user if it's safe to do so. Controllers will follow the user's personalised emergency procedures which could include escalating to the Emergency services, Skyguard's National Response Service, or the employer's own nominated contacts, and guide them to the user's location.
As Skyguard owns and is certified to all three parts of the Lone Worker standard BS 8484 (the company, the device and the ARC), this enables them to provide the highest level of police response. As a result, Skyguard have secured Unique Reference Numbers (URN's) for all the UK's Police forces, giving them direct access to Police control rooms and bypassing the 999 service. This process guarantees a faster response in the event of an emergency and can often prove life-saving.
