RoSPA charity protects its consultants worldwide with Globalstar’s satellite trackers
Written by: Sam Fenwick | Published:

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), a UK charity is now using SPOT Gen3 satellite communications devices from Globalstar to safeguard its team of consultants as they work on projects around the world to improve occupational health and safety, water safety, road safety and other public safety issues.

The SPOT Gen3 device allows the RoSPA to track the locations of its consultants via GPS and gives them the ability to call for help with a one-touch SOS button. Pressing the button sends the user’s GPS location to the GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Centre (IERCC) over Globalstar’s satellite network. The IERCC then works with local first responders to rapidly dispatch help to the user’s precise location.

“As we advise organisations about how to keep their personnel and the general public safe, we keep a close watch on technology innovations that reduce the risks for our staff who carry out their roles in remote or other high-risk environments. SPOT Gen3‘s universal reach and ease of use made this the right solution to boost the safety of our teams wherever they might be,” said Nathan Davies, head of consultancy at RoSPA.

“RoSPA does not just talk the talk, it takes its own staff welfare seriously. Whether consultants are in remote parts of the UK with no phone signal or at a petroleum plant thousands of miles away, SPOT provides users as well as colleagues, friends and family, with peace of mind and confidence that they can get help in an emergency,” said Gary King, regional sales manager, Globalstar.
