Lone Worker Safety for Construction
Lone working in construction puts you in some very dangerous positions! Workers are frequently exposed to heights, falling objects, confined spaces, slips, trips and much more! One way of improving the safety of construction workers is to use an employee safety monitoring system.
Construction workers require a solution that ensures they have round the clock safety monitoring, automated check-ins and precise GPS locations in case of emergency.
Man Down Alerts
Make sure employees are protected by using the man (worker) down motion detector. Monitors will be alerted if there is no movement from an employee within a set length of time.
High Risk Check In
Construction workers can adjust the time of their check-ins if they go into a higher risk situation. If there is no reponse to the new check-in notification, monitors will be alerted to investigate.
Enable your employees to call for immediate assistance with the help button. Workers use the on-screen button or pre-set voice commands to alert supervisors/management to an emergency situation.

I tested a few other apps but once I tried OK Alone I didn’t try any more. OK Alone was the easiest to use and had the best settings options to fit our needs.
