Each of our alarms is fully certified and audited to BS 8484 (code of practice for the provision of lone worker devices) and accredited to the Association of Chief Police Officer’s (ACPO) coveted ‘Secured by Design’ accolade.
Mobile Phone Position Request
A feature unique to Safeguard’s MySOS allows you to request the device's position by simply sending it an SMS text message. A reply with a web link to a map with the device's position will be sent, which can be viewed on an internet-enabled mobile phone or computer.
Position reports will record the personal safety device’s location at a specific date and time and can be sent automatically at regular intervals or manually whenever needed, at the touch of a button. The user's location can be viewed on an online map at Safeguard's secure Customer Service Centre portal.
On activating the SOS alarm button, the MySOS personal alarm sends its location to Safeguard's Response Center so our Controllers will know exactly where the alarm is coming from. A two-way voice call is then initiated with the Safeguard Controller who will follow the personalised emergency procedures you provided us and if appropriate, they will summon the emergency services or contact your employer.
Weighing only 40 grams, the compact and lightweight design of the MySOS personal safety device makes it convenient to use in everyday situations. It can be worn around the neck as a pendant, attached to a keyring, a belt using the optional holster accessory or even an identity badge holder.
The MySOS features a button which can be programmed with a phone number of your choosing. This allows the user to call a nominated contact, using the device as a mobile phone.
Voice memo (Amber Alert)
This feature enables you to leave voice messages specific to your situation, such as who you are meeting and how long you’ll expect to be, which could provide vital additional information in an emergency. The message is immediately available to Safeguard Controllers if an alarm is activated.
The Status LEDs display information showing you exactly what the device is doing. Indicators include GPS availability, GSM connection, signal strength and low battery warning.
All calls and actions are digitally recorded on secure servers within our IMC, should they be needed as legal evidence. Safeguard’s audio recordings have led to numerous successful prosecutions.

"Lone workers are those who work by themselves without close or direct supervision."
We understand that lone worker safety is not a ‘one size fits all' proposition - and therefore different jobs have different risk profiles that in turn impact on the best solution for that person.
