Skyguard will be showcasing the brand new version of our exclusive ‘MySOS’ personal safety alarm at this year’s Lone Worker Safety Conference, held at the Olympia Conference Centre on 24th November.

The MySOS which already includes GSM, GPS and Man-down technologies, has been further enhanced by Skyguard with a number of new features in an updated key-fob sized design. Fully certified to BS 8484, the British Standard for Lone Worker Devices, the new MySOS will offer increased functionality whilst still retaining the title of Europe’s smallest personal safety alarm.

Marketing Director, Will Murray said, “We are really excited to showcase the new version of our award-winning MySOS, at this year’s Lone Worker Safety Conference.

“The original MySOS has been proven in use, delivering effective help to tens of thousands of vulnerable people, whilst being convenient to carry and easy to use. The latest version incorporates even more safeguarding features but maintains the simple and flexible design which made its predecessor so successful.”

Visitors to the show will be able to see live demonstrations of our exclusive lone worker protection range, including the new MySOS device, as well as our Smartphone application.

Skyguard’s products enable users to raise an alarm in an emergency at the touch of button, to our purpose-built, 24/7, Incident Management Centre. Here, trained Controllers can view the user’s GPS location and registered profile information, silently listen-in, and talk to the user if it’s safe to do so. Controllers will follow the user’s personalised emergency procedures which could include escalating to the Emergency services, Skyguard’s National Response Service, or the employer’s own nominated contacts, and guide them to the user’s location.

At Skyguard, our company, devices and Incident Management Centre are certified to all three parts of the Lone Worker standard, BS 8484. This enables us to provide the highest level of police response. As a result, Skyguard have secured Unique Reference Numbers (URN’s) for all the UK’s Police forces, giving us direct access to Police control rooms and bypassing the 999 service. This process guarantees a faster response in the event of an emergency and can often prove life-saving.
