The Suzy Lamplugh Trust was set up in 1986 to honour Suzy Lamplugh, a 25-year-old estate agent who disappeared that year. Although never being found, the Trust exists to ensure the disappearance of Suzy does not happen to anyone else, with the vision of a society in which people are safer, and feel safer, from violence and aggression.
To achieve its mission, the Suzy Lamplugh Trust aims to reduce the risk of violence and aggression through campaigning, education and support. As featured in the Suzy Lamplugh Lone worker directory, the Vismo Lone Worker App turns any smartphone or tablet into a tracking device with a panic button and video streaming capabilities, enabling lone workers to have two-way communication with colleagues or security teams.

“According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), between 2017 and 2018 there were an estimated 694,000 incidents of violence at work, where 54% of work-place violence offenders were strangers. Among the 46% of incidents where the offender was known, they were most likely to be clients, or a member of the public known through work. Vismo recognises the risks faced by Lone Workers and has developed a Lone Worker App; a fully integrated solution for all mobile platforms.
The Lone Worker App turns a smartphone or tablet into a tracking device with a panic button and video streaming capabilities. This enables lone workers to have two-way communication with colleagues or security teams.
The App features timed check-ins which can be set if a lone worker enters a potentially high-risk meeting or dangerous area. If the safety timer runs out, an alert is automatically sent to administrators of the Vismo Portal. Workers can continue uninterrupted as the App runs in the background of the device, while also using minimal battery.
Vismo is used by many FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 companies, NGO agencies and numerous remote and lone workers in the UK and globally. The App can be easily deployed into a large range of industries such as healthcare, housing and out-of-hours contractors.
In line with the continuation of global demand for lone worker protection, Vismo continually innovates and deploys the latest technology to enhance its solutions and better serve its increasing lone worker global client base.”
