We’re delighted to be working with Patrick Dealtry, recognised expert in lone working, founder and owner of the Loneworking Group.
Following careers in the military and the security industry, Patrick has been actively engaged in the Lone Worker market since 2001 when he founded the Lone Worker Steering Group with, among others, the NHS Security Service, the HSE, the TUC and the Suzy Lamplugh Trust.
In 2003 he co-founded Skyguard, one of the pioneers, and now one of the market leaders, supplying the full range of Lone Worker services. He left the company in 2011 to pursue other interests in the Lone Worker market.
Patrick wrote the original draft of the Lone Worker standard, BS8484, at the request of the Association of Chief Police Officers and then steered it through the British Standards Institute system to publishing in 2009.
Since 2011 Patrick has operated as a Lone Worker consultant, advising companies on how to enter the market and develop their services as well as advising companies on how best to protect their Lone Workers. He also writes articles, blogs, speaks at and chairs Lone Worker events and acts as a judge for the IFSEC Security and Fire Awards.
He has been chairman of the British Security Industry Association, (BSIA), Lone Worker Section since its start and is a passionate campaigner for best practice in the lone worker market.
In 2010 Patrick received the BSIA Chairman’s Award for services to standards in the security industry.
