Guardian24’s Will Murray has featured in an interview for business communications publication Land Mobile. Murray shares his extensive knowledge and thoughts on what companies must consider when procuring a lone worker solution.
Murray addresses key issues including cellular connectivity and how to encourage stakeholder buy-in, as well as various environmental factors and the importance of standards.
Speaking about the BS 8484 lone worker standard as Chairman of the BSIA’s Lone Worker Section, Murray explains how using accredited systems can save vital minutes. “Adhering to the standard really does make a difference in terms of the speed of response. It allows you to apply to police forces for a unique reference number (URN).”
With this approach, Murray states, “It works out to be about two minutes quicker on average than ringing 999. This can be the difference between life and death.”
