When GPS first began to be used for worker safety monitoring, it was hailed as an important breakthrough. At the time, it was a leap forward in technology. It allowed workers to be accurately monitored, even in remote locations and while on the move.
Nowadays this GPS technology is available in most smartphones and the Ok Alone app allows you to safely monitor your workers by using this GPS technology.
How does the GPS Monitoring Work?
Ok Alone’s lone worker app provides GPS tracking that can give a worker’s real time location in an emergency. There a couple of monitoring options; with GPS High the app uses your phone’s GPS to provide the most accurate location.
Ok Alone offers GPS Normal for location monitoring that won’t use all of your charge. Any app that drains the charge on your battery is not going to help keep you safe!
Ok Alone is an app that doesn’t need to be ‘open’ to work. The app features background mode, which means the solution is running without it having to be constantly on the screen. So the lone worker app can run in the background and continuously give location updates. Therefore, if your worker is in trouble – we know where they are!
