FOB ALARM Guardian 24, a provider of lone worker safety solutions, has launched an exclusive new personal safety alarm: the MicroGuard.

The key fob sized device combines the latest GPS, GPRS and G-sensor technologies to provide lone workers with an easy to use means to call for help at the touch of a button.

Certified to the British Standard for Lone Worker Device Services (BS 8484), the MicroGuard connects to Guardian24’s dedicated UK Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC); also certified to BS 8484 and BS 5979 (Category II).

BROCHURE With HSE reporting that the construction industry accounted for 31% of fatal injuries to employees during 2013/14, TraffiGlove has released its Construction Hand Protection brochure, in order to help reduce hand accidents in the sector.

Designed to help companies meet health and safety goals by ensuring adequate hand safety, the new brochure combines the very latest hand safety information along with success stories and details of industry trends.

which will automatically raise an alert to the ARC in the event of a fall or sudden impact.

complexity when it comes to ensuring that the right gloves are being used for certain tasks.

The traffic-light colour coding system offers a quick and simple way to tell at a glance and from a distance that workers are using the correct gloves, regardless of language. It therefore makes it easier to ensure health and safety across an entire site.

Franz Lorenschitz, Marketing Manager at TraffiGlove said: “The Construction Sector brochure from TraffiGlove is designed to help improve health and safety awareness. We have done this by gathering the latest information, industry trends and success stories from within the construction industry to help companies reach their health and safety goals. As a leader in health and safety innovation, TraffiGlove aspires to provide the best possible protection to workers who require safety gloves.”


Despite MicroGuard’s small size, the device boasts a battery life of over 200 hours in standby, depending on how the device is configured for use. The device’s flexible design means it can be discreetly worn as a pendant, attached to a keyring or belt, or even worn as an identity card holder using an accessory.

Guardian24’s service provides clients with 24/7 access to an online portal which allows administrators to update user information in real-time, and customise the emergency protocols for ARC controllers to follow in emergency situations. All alarm calls and actions taken by the ARC are digitally recorded allowing them to be used for evidential purposes, if required.

Leona Mills, Marketing Manager of Guardian24 explained the rationale behind the additional device offering: “Adding the MicroGuard to our product portfolio allows us to offer a compact lone worker device that can be used in addition to our smartphone app, providing the user with 24/7 protection for just a single subscription fee.”
