Unipart Rail and Tended form Partnership

Unipart Rail has formed an alliance with Tended to improve trackside safety for rail workers with Tended’s award-winning, high precision geofencing safety solution. The solution is designed to address safety challenges in the rail industry by improving workers’ situational awareness within rail environments.


Through the combination of Unipart Rail's site support network, extensive industry knowledge, our combined manufacturing capability and Tended’s technical expertise, together we can work towards achieving our mission of making sure everyone returns home safely at the end of the day.


The innovative geofencing safety solution provides real-time alerts to workers straying into hazardous areas, among a variety of other revolutionary features to both prevent and understand risks leading to serious injury and fatalities on the railway.


Combining a rugged wearable device designed for maintenance and construction environments with the intuitive, simple-to-use online Dashboard, organisations can expect significant enhancements to their safety profile, productivity and costs relating to the management of dangerous worksites.


By combining their strengths, Unipart Rail and Tended can now deliver the safety solution as a hired, leased, managed service or sale and provide all functions to support its effective deployment including end-user and administrator training, logistics and nationwide distribution, real-time 24/7 support and proactive maintenance of hardware.


Leo Scott Smith, CEO at Tended said: “The partnership between Tended and Unipart Rail really does have the potential to transform safety of trackside workers across the rail network. Our teams have worked incredibly hard to develop such a revolutionary safety platform to serve the rail industry. Tended’s ethos has always had safety at its core and with such a well-placed and collaborative partner as Unipart Rail, we’re absolutely convinced that we can realise our ambitions of helping everyone get home safe every day.”
