Following an independent audit by the National Security Inspectorate, Amberstone Risk Watch Lone Worker Solution has been awarded Guarding Gold status for the provision of lone worker device services in accordance with British Standard BS8484.
The new and demanding BS8484 Code of Practice for the Provision of Lone Worker Device Services has been driven by ACPO and the security industry to promote best practice for lone workers and to reduce the number of false alarms being received and responded to by the emergency services. Risk Watch is a fully-managed lone worker protection solution for those potentially exposed to harassment, intimidation or violence in the course of their working day. Risk Watch is the first of its kind using smart wearable technology with none of the usual false alarm issues. The wearer is able to discreetly alert the Monitoring centre and the escalation process vis the portal to a threat with a single press of a button, ensuring no suspicion is raised.
