Peoplesafe unveils ‘world’s smallest personal safety alarm’
Lone worker safety brand Peoplesafe unveiled what it claims is the world’s smallest and lightest personal safety device – MicroSOS – at Safety and Health Expo.
The MicroSOS includes the latest A-GPS, GSM and Man-down technologies, in a design the size of a USB stick. The device is also fully dust and waterproof to IP67 rating, making it ideal for outdoor environments. Fully certified to BS 8484:2016, the British Standard for Lone Worker Services, the compact MicroSOS weighs just 27 grams.
The MicroSOS is an evolution of the Peoplesafe’s popular MicroGuard device, but even more discreet and flexible to use with a range of bespoke accessories including a holster, ID badge holder and magnetic docking station.
At the touch of a button, MicroSOS connects to Peoplesafe’s 24/7 Alarm Receiving Centre, certified to the highest industry standards, including BS 8484, BS 5979 (CATI), ISO 9001 and Secured by Design.
Marketing Director Will Murray said: “[The MicroSOS’s] predecessor, the MicroGuard, has been proven in use, delivering effective help to thousands of vulnerable people, whilst being convenient to carry and easy to use. The MicroSOS incorporates more features and cutting-edge technology, packed into an even smaller and simpler design.
“The MicroSOS is the pinnacle of years of industry experience and product development, representing the next generation of personal safety alarms.”
Peoplesafe is part of the lone worker protection provider the Send For Help Group, which includes subsidiaries Skyguard and Guardian24.
Peoplesafe demonstrated the MicroSOS on its exhibition stand at SHE2018 alongside sister company Skyguard, with both companies also hosting seminars on best practice when visiting clients during the show.
