What is a Safe Worker App?
Employers have a duty of care to keep their workers safe, especially when they are working alone. A safe worker app is a cloud-based tool and safety management app used to monitor your workforce and keep them safe whereever they are, at any time of the day or night.
Popular safe worker apps work on a range of smartphone devices and provide a professional and real-time 24/7 emergency monitoring service with GPS locations. A cloud-based monitoring hub (dashboard) will help automate your company’s safety processes, monitor your lone workers in real-time and improve productivity for your teams.
Why you Need a Safe Worker App
With more and more people working remotely or as distributed workforces these days, either out in the field or alone in their homes, it is vital they have a way to check in with supervisors or get help in critical situations. Some safe worker products involve using expensive, cumbersome external equipment that needs to be carried around all shift, this is not ideal. Safe worker apps, however, can offer remote workers the necessary safety equipment with the ease of adding it to the technology they already have with them.
Ok Alone’s highly rated safe worker app is trusted by thousands of users all over the globe, including Canada, the UK, the US, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Implement our popular and affordable lone worker solution to protect and monitor your employees while they work, travel or meet with clients alone or in remote locations increasing employee safety.
Top Rated Features of a Safe Worker App
1. Automated check in
A vital aspect of any solution is a flexible count down timer on a mobile device. This needs to be set as scheduled check ins ranging from 15 minutes to 24 hours or changed depending on the situation. There should also be automated missed check in alerts if there is no response from the worker.
2. GPS locations
GPS monitoring needs to give a worker’s real time positioning in an emergency, no matter how remote locations are. There should be a number of settings available to workers depending on the accuracy required.
3. Panic button
If a worker requires immediate help they should be able to tap the HELP button on the app, send an sms with their worker ID number and the word HELP or call in and select HELP from the menu. This should go directly to their monitor/supervisor with location details.
4. Man Down/Worker Down
If no movement is detected the app should sound audible alerts first informing the worker that there has been no movement to avoid false alarms. If there is no response from the lone worker, then a man down alert should be escalated to an allocated supervisor.
5. High-risk check in
There are times when a worker is entering a high risk situation and they want the ability to shorten their next check-in time themselves. This should be something they have complete control of through the app.
The cloud-based dashboard, available on a range of devices should give a clear, detailed map of the area each worker is in. This will allow supervisors to have precise co-ordinates to send help to if a worker misses a check in or requires emergency services.
