Lone Worker Protection for University Staff and Students

Within universities, it is not unusual to find people working on their own. People working by themselves without close or direct supervision, where they cannot be seen or heard by others.

University lone workers require a solution that ensures they have safety monitoring, automated check-ins and a help button in case of emergencies.

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.
