Peoplesafe unveil the world's smallest personal safety alarm - 'MicrosSOS'
Peoplesafe will be unveiling the World's smallest and lightest personal safety device - MicroSOS, at the 2018 Safety and Health Expo, held at London's Excel between 19th to 21st June.
Exclusively developed by Peoplesafe, the MicroSOS includes the latest A-GPS, GSM and Man-down technologies, in a design the size of a USB stick. The device is also fully dust and waterproof to IP67 rating, making it ideal for outdoor environments. Fully certified to BS 8484:2016, the British Standard for Lone Worker Services, the compact MicroSOS weighs just 27 grams.
The MicroSOS is an evolution of the Peoplesafe's popular MicroGuard device, but even more discreet and flexible to use with a range of bespoke accessories including a holster, ID badge holder and magnetic docking station.
At the touch of a button, MicroSOS connects to Peoplesafe's 24/7 Alarm Receiving Centre certified to the highest industry standards, including BS 8484, BS 5979 (CATI), ISO 9001 and Secured by Design.
Marketing Director, Will Murray said, "We are really excited to unveil the revolutionary MicroSOS, at this year's Safety and Health Expo.
"It's predecessor - the MicroGuard has been proven in use, delivering effective help to thousands of vulnerable people, whilst being convenient to carry and easy to use. The MicroSOS incorporates more features and cutting-edge technology, packed into an even smaller and simpler design.
"The MicroSOS is the pinnacle of years of industry experience and product development, representing the next generation of personal safety alarms."
Peoplesafe is part of the World's largest lone worker protection provider - the Send For Help Group, which includes subsidiaries Skyguard and Guardian24.
Peoplesafe will be demonstrating the MicroSOS on their exhibition stand V350 in the Lone Worker Arena, alongside sister company Skyguard. Whilst Guardian24 will be exhibiting in the co-located show IFSEC, on stand D132.
In addition to exhibiting, both Peoplesafe and Skyguard will be hosting educational seminars explaining best practice when visiting clients; at the Lone Worker Theatre at 10.30am on Tuesday 19th and in the International Firex Show at 1pm on Wednesday 20th June.
