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.


ARC accreditations:


  • Personnel vetted in accordance with the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006 and BS7858
  • Secured by Design, a Police preferred specification
  • Business processes audited to ISO9001:2008
  • BS8484 accredited, the code of practice for lone worker devices and service
  • BS5979 category II accredited to future proof police response and to ensure business continuity
  • All of standards independently verified by the NSI or SSAIB

Feature & Benefits

Provides extra peace of mind

With Overtec you get to deal directly with people who have years of experience protecting lone workers and providing the right help on the other end of the line 24/7.

Easy to use

Raising the alarm is made easy. If the going gets tough staff can use a regular safety check function either temporarily or permanently.

Legal duty of care

As well as demonstrating duty of care, Overtec provides audit trails of lone worker alarm activations and incident recordings that can be used to demonstrate health and safety good practice.

Low cost

Overtec Lone Worker Protection is available on virtually any mobile handset. That keeps costs down because no additional mobile equipment or line rental is required. (Handsets can be bought if required.)


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.
