Lone Worker MonitoringKeep your workers safe when they are working alone
WHAT Steps do you take to manage and MINIMISE THE RISK OF INJURY to YOUR EMPLOYEES?
Lone workers who operate in isolation from other employees, without close or direct supervision, do so with a heightened risk of personal injury. Lone workers require extra precautions to be taken as steps initiated independently, and by their employer/s. Working alone can be dangerous, however, the risks can always be minimised even if they cannot be completely eliminated.
WHAT IS AN EMPLOYEE PERSONAL SAFETY APP?
Recon’s Personal Safety App allows organisations to monitor their employee’s welfare through a simple smart phone app.
This can be particularly useful for:
- Staff working at night
- Employees working in remote areas
- Staff working in dangerous situations
- Lone workers
Organisations have the ability to set specific parameters for how often their employees need to check in using the Safety App. Should any staff member fail to check in, an alert is automatically sent to Recon’s 24 hour monitoring centre to action.
WHAT IS A PERSONAL LOCATOR OR lone WORKER DEVICE?
Recon's lone worker personal safety device is a fully-supported, New Zealand developed, end-to- end safety system. This technology is designed for both small and large organisations to deploy in the field with minimal user training. The device features:
- A panic alarm
- A man-down alarm
- A 2 way hands free voice channel
- GPS tracking
Employees activate the device when their safety is at risk and an alert is sent to Recon’s 24 hour monitoring centre where it is actioned immediately.
HOW DOES THE PERSONAL SAFETY MONITORING WORK?
When an App or panic alert has been activated, a visual alert identifying the employee’s GPS location will be displayed in Recon’s 24-hour Control Room so support can be provided to the distressed employee immediately.
This personal safety device can also allow an email alert to be sent to a pre-determined email address or multiple addresses. This is a very useful tool for notifying your health and safety team when an alarm has been activated. Recon can also design a custom response plan to dispatch police or emergency services and/or contact company management or specified people, as required.
Ensure your duty of care whilst providing staff with the peace of mind that their health and safety is a priority.
