Lone Worker Safety for Logistics Workers and Drivers
Transport and logistics personnel are exposed to different kinds of risks while alone on the road or when loading and unloading their vehicle. One way of improving the safety of logistics workers and drivers is to use a lone worker safety system.
Lone working drivers require a solution that ensures they have round the clock safety monitoring, automated check-ins and precise GPS locations in case of emergency.
Monitor Drivers Away from the Vehicle
Easily see the location and status of your drivers on our cloud-based dashboard. Drivers and vehicles are shown as separate pins on a map whether they are together or miles apart.
Employers can manage 100’s of workers, view alerts, actions and locations efficiently from one device.
Drive Mode uses a vehicle monitoring device to register whether a vehicle is in motion when a check in is due.
The system can then automatically check the driver in, and show employers they are safe, without them having to take their focus off the road.
Any user with iOS12/13 or an Android phone can easily start a shift, end a shift, check in or get help – all by using their voice, completely hands free.
This allows truckers, drivers, logistics workers or anyone loading/unloading goods to update their status without stopping their work.
