BS5979 Alarm Receiving Centre
Our Alarm Receiving Centre is fully accredited to the highest lone worker standards (both BS5979 Category II and BS8484) and operated 24/7 by highly-trained, experienced staff.
We partner with First County Monitoring and have exclusive access to their BS5979 Alarm Receiving Centre for lone worker monitoring services.
Fast, Accurate Police Dispatch
When a Red Alert is triggered, every second counts. That’s why we use the latest alarm handling technology to ensure that operators can listen to, assess, record and process each alarm asap.
BS8484 certification enables the highest level of police response. Operators can issue a Unique Reference Number (URN) at the push of a button, requesting a direct response from any regional Police control room.
This enables us to bypass the 999 service and guarantees the fastest possible response to a lone worker incident.
Our lone worker monitoring software, Vision, is the connection between you, your lone workers and the Alarm Receiving Centre. This enables you and your managers to view any lone worker activity in real-time.
Safe & Secure Data
Our Alarm Receiving Centre provides the highest standards in monitoring services. In addition to BS8484 and BS5979 Category II, it holds a number of other accreditations such as ISO 9000, BS EN 50131 and PD6662.
As a result, your data is secure in a building that’s protected against smoke, fire, flood and vandalism – among many other things. We also have a robust disaster recovery plan in place, to ensure maximum uptime in the event of an emergency.
A self-managed Alarm Receiving Centre can be inexpensive to run and quick to implement. But, it can have serious implications on the safety of your lone workers.
The Benefits of Outsourced Support
Whilst greater initial financial investment is required, outsourcing to a dedicated BS5979 Alarm Receiving Centre can provide a wealth of benefits:
- Recognised by Police and Blue Light services who can provide optimal response times
- Dedicated resource 24/7 365 days a year
- Reassures lone workers knowing they have reliable support in place
- Experienced operators who can provide calm, methodical support in an emergency
- Relieves pressure from senior management to respond to lone worker alarms
Having expert support to hand 24/7 365 days a year, can mean the difference between a near injury or a serious one.
