Panic Buttons for Illinois and Chicago Lone Workers

In July 2020 the state of Illinois introduced the ‘Hotel and Casino Safety Act (S.B. 75)’. This legislation requires all hospitality-based lone workers to be issued with a panic button. 

Hotel employers are responsible for providing a working panic button to their covered employees. Are you ready?

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

What is a lone worker panic button?

A panic button is a portable emergency contact device that the employee carries on his or her person. The device:

  • can be quickly and easily activated by the lone worker

  • summon help to the employee’s precise location in the hotel

  • use GPS coordinates to locate the worker

  • trigger prompt assistance by a hotel security officer, manager or designated staff member

Ok Alone covers all of these needs and more:

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.

Using Ok Alone for the first time and its surprisingly quick and simple to get started. The new Man Down feature works well.
