‘Pick Protection is One of the Top 100 Innovative and Disruptive Companies in the UK’

Pick Protection’s mission is to use leading technology to make the world a safer place.


Pick Protection was initially founded as a company devising innovative personal attack alarms. The inspiration came to CEO Rebecca Pick when her neighbour was attacked and nobody came to help.

However, with a staggering 150 lone workers estimated to be either verbally or physically attacked each day in the UK, we decided a shift in focus was necessary, to concentrate on lone worker solutions and giving peace of mind to both employees and employers.


Pick Protection has partnered with Unipart Security’s UK based NSI Gold Category II Monitored Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) to provide lone worker monitoring at the very highest industry standard.


BS 8484 is the British Standards Institute (BSI) code of practice for the Provision of Lone Worker Device Services.

The Monitored Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) is certified to BS 8484, BS 5979 (Category II) and upon alarm activation can summon the appropriate emergency service to the lone worker's exact location. The ARC is also able to summon a faster emergency response than what is available to the general public via the 999 system.


To embed safety and employee protection in company culture.

We believe protecting employees is more than a box-ticking exercise. That doesn't mean it should be time consuming or expensive. Our goal is to provide affordable lone worker protection that is easy to implement and easy for employees to use every day.
