Lone Worker Protection Services
Keep your people safe when they're working solo.
Monitor employee welfare any time
Look after your people when they’re working alone with Lone Worker Protection Services from Vodafone Business and Orbis.
There are around seven million lone workers in the UK, from delivery drivers and out-of-hours retail staff to financial advisors and construction workers. With the variety of locations their day might demand from them, it can be difficult for employers to discharge their duty of care to protect them.
Vodafone Business partners with Orbis, the UK’s leading provider of 24/7 property and people protection, to offer Lone Worker Protection Services paired with our first-class reliable connectivity. Together, Orbis and Vodafone Business deliver emergency resolutions with a direct line to emergency services, backed by Vodafone’s best network for business (Mobile News Awards 2023).

Meet duty of care requirements
Your business has a legal responsibility to look after the health and safety of its lone workers – including those working from home. Our Lone Worker Protection solutions are a simple way to integrate safeguarding into your business.
Orbis Lone Worker protection allows you to monitor the welfare of your employees at any time through a central dashboard, supported by a 24/7 Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC).
Orbis is the only security provider to have its own BS 5979 Cat II accredited ARC, providing 24/7 response. When incidents happen, they are sent to emergency services or pre-defined contacts. The Class A response is recognised as coming from Orbis and prompts a rapid response.
