Based in Wakefield, Force Shield Security is a specialist in the Private Security Industry. Its services cover all aspects of manned, mobile and electronic security requirements.
Having recently expanded the company from door supervision into the manned guarding space, Force Shield Security felt it was necessary to introduce a lone working strategy that could help it to monitor its guards.
Due to the nature of work carried out by the guards, Force Shield had a health and safety obligation by which it needed to comply. In order to meet these legislative requirements, the company decided it needed to invest in a suitable lone worker solution which would protect and monitor its guards when working alone and out of hours on patrol jobs.
Previously, the security company depended on one of its manned guarding clients which had its own internal check-call system to monitor the guards. However, this was not a sustainable solution when taking on new work beyond that client and so Force Shield Security needed to invest in another more suitable solution.
