Lone Worker Monitoring Solutions Earn BS8484 Certification

May 21 2016 Read 981 Times

Blackline Safety Corp. (Canada), announces that it has received British Standard 8484: 2011 (BS8484) accreditation for its lone worker monitoring solutions from the SSAIB (Security Systems & Alarms Inspection Board). BS8484 defines the industryleading code of practice for lone worker
equipment and monitoring services in the United Kingdom. 

“With approximately 15 percent of employees working alone, our new BS8484 accreditation gives customers confidence that our Loner solutions meet and exceed industry requirements,” says Gavin Boorman, Managing Director at Blackline Safety Europe. “Coupled with our Alarm Receiving Centre partner monitoring services, Blackline delivers the fastest possible emergency response for every industry, employee role, location and scenario.”

“BS8484 accreditation enables certified service suppliers to bring the highest level of police response—
Level 1—not normally available through the 999 or 101 systems,” says Patrick Dealtry, Lone Worker
Consultant at Lone Working Group Ltd. “Before the police commit themselves to this level of response
they need to know that such a request has been verified as genuine, which means that it comes from an
organisation that meets BS8484.”

Blackline Safety offers the industry’s largest portfolio of lone worker monitoring solutions to meet the
diverse requirements of customers in every industry. Now shipping, Blackline’s new Loner M6 device
features a blue LiveResponse light that confirms to the lone worker that help is on the way. It also
incorporates an industry-leading speakerphone system that projects the monitoring agent’s voice loudly
and clearly while capturing the employee’s voice through a sensitive microphone. All phone calls are
automatically recorded within monitoring infrastructure and available as part of Blackline’s comprehensive
reporting capability.

Loner M6 is compatible with Blackline’s indoor location beacon technology that accurately maps the location of employees working inside commercial and industrial buildings using an interactive Google™
map. Loner M6 uses GPS satellite signals to accurately map an employee’s location when working outdoors, however GPS signals alone are unreliable or not available when working indoors. For the fastest
indoor emergency response, Loner M6 and Blackline’s location beacon technology support custom floor plans to display a lone worker’s position on in context of surroundings and evacuation routes.
