Your Duty of Care
But what if your lone workers find themselves in a threatening position from verbal or physical abuse? Or if they have an accident or are in physical danger? And how would you know? Would you know their location? Would they feel safe and protected?
What is a Lone Worker Tracking Solution and how can it Help?
If staff are working away from a fixed base, their employers will need to know where they are at any given time and that they are safe and secure.
With real-time information on the current GPS of workers or loved ones, the intelligent software and alarming systems of a lone worker tracking solution can help with this
Tracking can take place on a smart device, wearable technology, or an app simply downloaded to a smartphone. Information is then sent by email or SMS directory to the phone or computer.
