If you see an argument breaking out at the Safety and Health Expo 2016, you might not need to call security right away.
We’ll be there be making an example of ourselves in dramatic style.
We’re celebrating our rebrand and the launch of our new-look website by inviting visitors to the Little Green Button stand to have an argument. In homage to the classic Monty Python Argument Clinic sketch YouTube, visitors with something to get off their chest can donate £1 for a two-minute argument with actors primed in the art of aggravation.
A new look for Little Green Button
The aim is to raise awareness of Little Green Button and to demonstrate how early intervention can prevent a minor disagreement spiralling out of control. It’s a serious message, but we don’t think there’s anything wrong with having a bit of fun along the way.
The software enables workers who are facing members of the public, or working in a potentially volatile one-to-one environment, to unobtrusively call for help from colleagues nearby. A double click on the desktop icon and all colleagues on the same network receive a request for help; a call for company, so to speak. The most appropriate person can then gently intervene and help diffuse the situation.
The software has proved a huge success to date with over 50,000 active users, primarily in the healthcare sector. We’re now keen to reach new markets, such as social housing and local government, who we believe have a lot to gain by making their staff feel better protected. Our rebrand marks the beginning of this new era for Little Green Button.
Supporting the Suzy Lamplugh Trust
All proceeds are going to the Suzy Lamplugh Trust, a charity which we are proud to support. The Trust works to reduce the risk of violence and aggression for everyone in society through educating people about the risks in their everyday lives and sharing information on how to take steps to avoid or manage them.
However, please be warned. If the argument appears to be going on longer than two minutes, or if things regress to fistycuffs, it might be a genuine disagreement, so call security. Or press a Little Green Button to summon back up!
If you fancy an argument, visit Little Green Button on stand L2050 at the Safety and Health Expo 2016 from the 21-23 June 2016 at Excel London.
