BSI standard for the management of lone worker protection services under review (UK)

Categories: Latest News.

The British Standards Institute is currently inviting public comments on the draft of BS 8484, a standard for the management of lone worker protection services. The draft standard covers the provision of services using electronic monitoring and alarm techniques.

Although lone worker protection is not currently perceived as telecare, it could be argued that it is. In any case, many telecare and telehealth services are potential users of lone worker protection services for their own staff and some also provide these services for in-house and external staff. Here is an opportunity to shape the development of the relevant British Standard.
