Why choose a personal safety solution to protect your travelling employees?

Whilst there is an emergency telephone number in place for all countries in the EU, a recent Foreign Office poll found that just 3% of people in the UK know that 112 is the EU emergency phone number.

However, even if you are aware of the service, there’s no guarantee that you’ll be put through to an English-speaking operator.

Isn’t it better to dial 112 (and this applies to 999 in the UK too)?

You cannot dial 999 in advance.

Skyguard allows users to notify them in advance if they are entering a dangerous or threatening situation. This can be done in several different ways: - by leaving a voice memo message giving details of who you are meeting and where you are going… by raising an alarm and asking the controller to stay on the line until you are safe, or summon help should an incident arise.

Pressing an alarm button is quicker

Dialling 999 and speaking to an emergency service operator requires more time and effort than simply activating an alarm button on your phone or personal safety device.

Operators will only report details of an incident to the emergency services.

With Skyguard, not only will the controller contact the emergency services, but they can also call colleagues and follow instructions according to the requirements you have given.

Operators don’t know who is calling, where they are or why they have called.

When answering an alarm, Skyguard’s controllers will immediately know who it is, where they are, and precisely what they want done in the event of an incident (because you have provided them with instructions to follow in an emergency).

Explain your situation to the 999 operator first

Skyguard’s controllers will call Police control rooms directly, where they avoid having to explain the situation to the 999 operator first and waiting for the call to be transferred to the local police operator.

Callers to 999 often cannot convey accurate information about their situation;

either as a result of panic, fear, pain or distress.
