Peoplesafe lone worker protection solution now available on Cat® Rugged Smartphones for enhanced HGV driver protection


Peoplesafe has entered into a strategic partnership with Bullitt Group, the global licensee for Cat® phones, to offer a lone worker service in the UK that better protect HGV drivers operating in harsh and unforgiving environments. The Peoplesafe app is now available on Cat phones’ full UK range of rugged smartphones via the integrated Toolbox catalogue, which aids customer discovery and easy installation of relevant apps and content. Peoplesafe offers 24/7 emergency support at the touch of a button. The app also provides enhanced location information to help locate workers in remote locations and includes fall detection capabilities to automatically raise an alarm.

Working in remote and dangerous environments, HGV drivers need a reliable means of communication in an emergency. Using the Peoplesafe smartphone app via a Cat phone combines military specification hardware that is designed to handle the toughest work conditions, with the UK’s leading lone worker service, including 24/7 emergency support from the Peoplesafe Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) and what3words integration to pinpoint location more precisely than traditional GPS technology.

Naz Dossa, CEO of Peoplesafe commented: “Workers using Cat phones are already taking advantage of smartphones with industry leading rugged credentials. Our lone worker services offer them an additional layer of protection, providing peace of mind as they carry out their work, with instant support in case of emergency. By working with industry-leading technology partners, such as Cat phones, we can continue to develop innovative, sector-specific solutions that mitigate employee risk and support high levels of duty of care.”

“Many Cat phones customers work independently, or in remote or potentially hazardous environments. For organisations with employees working in these settings, a dependable rugged smartphone with the Peoplesafe app that can raise alerts if help is needed, is a powerful and valuable combination that can improve employee safety for our UK customers,” said Nathan Vautier, CEO of Bullitt Group.

The Peoplesafe app is available on the range of Cat rugged smartphones, including the Cat S42, Cat S52 and Cat S62 Pro. More information is available here: Keeping lone workers safe – People Safe | Cat phones United Kingdom.
