“The GPS is now extremely accurate and this, together with the
lone worker facility, we are now compliant with the health and
safety regulations we need to be and the duty of care to our staff.
The GPS system gives us an audit trail to prove our compliance,
with staffing hours, speeding in company vehicles and we are able
to listen back to conversations between our staff if we need to.
“If we struggle to get a member of staff, we can check that they
are in range and their radio is switched on before raising an
alarm to check on their safety. The X1 radios are slick, they are
small and thin which means they can easily slip into your top shirt
pocket – it’s just like carrying a mobile phone.
