More than 150,000 workers use this Surrey firm’s key fob-sized personal GPS alarms to stay safe while working alone. It was founded in 2010, and now has more than 100 NHS trusts, 200 housing associations and hundreds of other organisations signed up as customers — including Pets at Home and Weetabix.
