A Cambridge college has chosen Lookout Call’s lone worker safety system to enhance the safety of its team of Porters.

Pembroke College, a constituent college of the University of Cambridge, relies on its Porters to deal with a range of situations, including general security. The Porter team is the first point of contact for out-of-hours emergencies.

In carrying out their role, Pembroke’s Porters may sometimes face potentially risky situations. Recognising this, Pembroke College has invested in Lookout Call to ensure that every member of the team can always be accounted for, and they have the ability to call for help in the event of any emergency.

Karen Lain, HR Manager at Pembroke, said: “We considered a number of lone worker safety systems and decided to work with Lookout Call because the mobile-based system is easy to use and offered us the best value for money.

“The Lookout Call team is based in Cambridge so we have also benefitted from a number of hands on training sessions to ensure swift uptake of the system.”
