Lone Worker Safety for Care Workers

Working in the care industry is not a job for the faint-hearted. Care workers are frequently exposed to high levels of verbal and physical abuse from those under their care. One way of improving the safety of care workers is to use a lone worker safety system

Lone working care workers require a solution that ensures they have round the clock safety monitoring, automated check-ins and precise GPS locations in case of emergency.

Care Worker Monitoring

Easily see the location and status of your care workers on our cloud-based dashboard. View alerts, actions and any issues efficiently in one place, on any device. 

Employers can manage 100’s of care workers at various locations from one device and get automated alerts regarding any problems workers may have.

Customisable Check In

The high risk check in is adjusted by the worker themselves. They can set their own check in timer around scheduled visits ensuring notifications do not go off while in patients homes.  

If the employee does not respond to their check-in notification, monitors will be alerted to investigate.

Discreet Help Alerts

Make sure nurses and other care workers are protected at all times with our panic button and help alerts. A discreet alert option is also available.

Monitors are immediately notified of alerts and help requests, including the GPS co-ordinates of the worker’s last know location, so they can quickly respond to any situation.

Great App to Help with Health and Safety

When you have staff working off site or unsupervised this is a great app to help with Health and Safety. You can’t anticipate what may happen during the course of one’s day.

This app provides a great option in mitigating a level of risk in combination with other processes and procedures.

Nothing is more important than going home safe at the end of the day.
