With the recent Coronavirus pandemic there is now an even greater push for commuters to use pedal power. Councils are putting more effort into creating viable Cycle routes. This combined with the rise of quality affordable pedal and electric bikes means there has never been a better time to take to the road … and get on your bike.
If you're considering commuting by bike here is a great article to help you on your way. https://www.cyclinguk.org/article/cycling-work-beginners
Cycling is now probably the most inclusive and healthy mode of transport and if you still aren’t persuaded don’t forget you can save around 20-30% on a new bike if you can use the UK Government’s Cycle to Work scheme (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/cycle-to-work-scheme-implementation-guidance).
Although the health and cost benefits have always been clear there are always risks as a road user, especially during rush hour traffic.

Although you may be cycling in public, often you will not be with family, friends or colleagues.
The company you work for is only legally responsible for your health and wellbeing when you are “working”. But increasingly Organisations are taking a more holistic approach to staff wellbeing.
Because MyTeamSafe is such a flexible lone worker solution we worked with one proactive customer to create a “Commuting” strategy for their staff.
This special strategy means that when staff are commuting to and from work they can be provided the full protection of a lone worker system without the HR/legal issues of making the employer responsible.
No other lone worker system provides this level of thought and support for both staff and the business.
MyTeamSafe and What3Words
To make things even easier MyTeamSafe is integrated with the amazing What3Words location identification system. When you need to communicate a precise location during an urgent situation using just three words is much quicker than trying to explain where someone is, especially in less built-up areas.
If a user doesn’t check-in on time your family member or “Buddy” will not just be sent a map reference but also a precise location using a unique combination of three words.
No other lone worker system integrates the simplicity of What3Word’s locations with the power of MyTeamSafe’s automated voice call feature.
Yet again MyTeamSafe proves why it is the most flexible solution that truly meets most Organisation’s lone worker safety needs.
This is why we’re used across all sectors of industry in the UK and Internationally
