What is the purpose of body-worn cameras?

A body-worn camera is a compact wearable device that captures and transmits both sound and video information. This means that when the footage it captures is viewed, whether in real time or after the situation, there is strong evidence showing what occurred. In some environments, body-worn cameras can be integrated with CCTV and two way radios to trigger an emergency recording. The purpose of body-worn cameras varies slightly from sector to sector, so we’ll examine some examples to demonstrate its uses.

Our guide to lone worker safety

Lone workers are people who cannot be seen or heard by colleagues or supervisors. While they work, there is no direct supervision. In addition to injuries or illness, lone workers can also fall victim to violence. It is estimated that there are between 123 and 205 assaults every day on lone workers. Lone worker safety is of concern, because nobody else is present to help them and other people are not aware of any crises they may encounter.
