TITLE
Lone working: emergency system
ARTICLE
Unless sales demand increases, only one man is required to operate the Northampton railhead. Following concerns about the welfare of the lone worker should an accident occur, he now wears a device that not only detects whether he has become unconscious, by body angle and movement, but can also be manually activated in a ‘panic situation’.

The device then dials pre-determined emergency contact numbers and sets off an audible alarm and flashing beacon on the site.
