StaySafe lone worker app

The StaySafe lone worker app gives employers visibility of the location and safety status of lone workers in an emergency and allows them to check-in safely once they have finished a lone working or travel session. Employees are in control of when their location is visible to ensure their privacy is maintained.

The app has been designed for a simple user experience. As the lone worker mobile app is installed on employee smart devices, it is generally always with them and charged; this means there is less user resistance compared to a separate lone worker device. With no capital outlay for hardware, the mobile app can be running in less than 24 h, with minimal upfront investment.

With the mobile app, employees can start a timed session before they begin a period of lone work or travel. This triggers a countdown and activates a satellite GPS tracker, visible in the Hub. If an employee fails to end their session safely, a session expiry alert will be sent to the monitor. A panic button also allows employees to send an immediate panic alert if they are in trouble and need assistance. This can be triggered in the app at any time, even if a session is not running. A panic alert can also be triggered discreetly using the phone’s power button.

The app switches between all available connections to offer optimal connectivity and protection to lone working employees. Data is the first connection the StaySafe app attempts to make, but in areas where a signal cannot be located, low signal mode is automatically activated. In low signal mode, alerts and session functions will continue to operate as usual, with location data updating if an alert is triggered.

Employers can choose to monitor activity in the Hub in-house or outsource to StaySafe’s professional 24/7 monitoring and response partners. These options can also be combined to structure a bespoke service.
