Are you a personal safety champion? Asks Peoplesafe

08 March 2016

Lone worker experts Peoplesafe (Rocksure Systems) are sponsoring the overall National Personal Safety Awards, which are run by Suzy Lamplugh Trust.

The company are also sponsoring one of the categories – the Personal Safety Champion Award, which will be given to the individual who facilitated the improvement of safety for employees in the workplace, especially for those employees who work alone.

There will be eight other categories at the awards on March 17. They include Safer Community, Safer Workplace, Campus Safety, Young Person and Best Safety Campaign. The host for the event at Church House Conference Centre in London will be former Crimewatch presenter Jacqui Hames.

Peoplesafe’s managing director, Ian Johannessen, said: “Sponsoring these awards is part of our ongoing work with Suzy Lamplugh Trust to keep personal safety at the forefront of people’s minds.

“Lone worker safety is not just about ticking boxes and giving staff equipment; it’s about the culture of the organisation. And often it needs someone to champion lone worker safety; someone who takes it upon themselves to keep staff safe. That might be the MD or it might be the receptionist."

Peoplesafe is a UK provider of simple and lightweight equipment, monitoring services and safety training for lone workers.
