Roofspace Solutions introduce Rombit safety wearables for lone workers

06 Oct 2022
Beth Malia-Taylor
In a first for the UK Construction Industry, Roofspace Solutions have invested in Rombit’s innovative wearables to provide state of the art safety and support for it’s workforce, putting worker welfare at the forefront of its operations.

Roofspace & Net4 (Rombit’s official UK partner) have worked closely on deploying the lone worker solution to their Contracts Managers and aftercare team. The solution provides immediate alerts if a worker is in distress, or suffers a shock or fall as well as alerting if they become motionless.  It is also possible to remotely check if a worker is safe, providing proactive safety measures.  By weaving the technology into its H&S practices the wearable provides Roofspace’s employees with increased protection, with the knowledge that an alarm will be raised in the event of an incident.

The devices are connected via the mobile network, which enables UK-wide coverage and are battery-powered to provide all-day use.  By utilising the latest positioning technology and various sensors, alarms are triggered automatically.  They can be worn on a wrist, arm or ankle and provide haptic feedback to the user as well as flashing LEDs.

Mike Corless, Construction Manager at Roofspace -
