24/7 RESPONSE TO EMERGENCIES
Essential for staff working remotely or alone and at risk from accidents or violence because of where they are or what they do.
OPTIONALLY THE EMERGENCY RESPONSE CAN BE HANDLED VIA OUR NETWORK OF ALARM RECEIVING CENTRES (ARCS)
Overtec LWP can operate through an independent network of Alarm Receiving Centres based in the UK. Through their BS5979 category II accreditation, the centres guarantee robust security and business continuity for lone worker protection clients.
Users receive a 24/7 response service from teams of controllers equipped with sophisticated technologies.
If the police need to be summoned to assist users in trouble, then direct links with police forces across the UK, enabled by the ARCs' outstanding record, mean faster access to the emergency services than by dialling 999.
During the incident, audio recordings will automatically be made that are available to customers for use in court proceedings and reports.
Overtec satisfies the legislative requirement for lone workers, the two main documents being: Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 Both they and the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 require that employers provide a duty of care for employees. Failure to do so can result in heavy fines and, under Health & Safety law, or imprisonment.
