Smurfit Kappa opts for ANT Telecom’s lone worker solution

Smurfit Kappa Group plc, a FTSE 100 company in the corrugated and paper packaging industry has rolled out ANT’s lone worker protection system across all 19 of its UK sites.

ANT Telecom has been working with Smurfit Kappa since 2011 and initially provided lone worker devices across five of the company’s locations. The device is designed to provide lone worker SOS and man down capabilities in both normal and harsh environments – users can raise an alert when the device’s in-built panic button has been pressed, or the tilt mechanism activated.

Nigel Elias, UK HSE manager at Smurfit Kappa, said: “The wellbeing of all of our staff is something we take very seriously and ensuring protection to our workers, especially when they are working alone, is integral. ANT Telecom’s lone worker devices have helped reassure our staff of their safety and give them confidence that should an incident occur, an alarm is triggered.”

More recently, Smurfit Kappa wanted to enhance the lone worker solution and protect lone workers across its other sites. “We needed a way of ensuring that an alert had reached the correct response team and had been dealt with in a timely manner, with complete visibility of the alarm’s audit trail.”
