Panic Buttons for Hotel Lone Workers in Seattle

The Seattle Hotel Employees Safety Protections Ordinance provides protection for hotel employees that work in Seattle hotels of 60 or more guest rooms

One of the four ordinances passed states employees must be equipped with a panic button and able to summon help. Employers must provide these panic buttons free of charge to any worker who works within or delivers to guest rooms. 

Ok Alone provides a low-cost app-based solution to provide a panic button and keep your employees safe.

Peace of Mind

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.

Very helpful

Used the app while working alone during the pandemic installing new lights in our church. Having an app like this while working on 15 ft high scaffolding was very helpful in convincing people that I could do this project alone. Excellent support with all my questions and requests answered immediately.

Highly recommend this service

Been using this for a while now. Only had 1 problem (was my end) but customer service was brilliant at trying to figure out the issue. Highly recommend this service for peace of mind if you are a lone worker.
