App tracks employee’s location via GPS & alerts their manager if they do not check-in within specified time Independent IT, telecommunications and electrical service provider i-Systems has rolled out innovative lone worker security app, StaySafe Business. The app, which tracks an employee’s location via GPS and alerts their manager if they do not check-in safely within a specified time, will be used to ensure that i-Systems engineers are safe when working alone. Prior to signing with StaySafe, i-Systems were manually administrating a system where engineers would text or call their employer when they arrived safely on site. However, in order to better meet their duty of care and to adhere to lone worker safety legislation i-Systems felt they needed a solution that was more robust. After a review of the lone worker safety market they selected StaySafe. Keep track of employees during emergencies The StaySafe app enables i-Systems to keep track of their employees in case of emergencies using the StaySafe online Hub. The Hub accurately locates workers on a map and provides real-time updates on their location. If an employee activates the app’s panic button or fails to check in, alerts are instantly visible in the StaySafe Hub and are backed up with automatic notifications via text and email. As well as a panic button facility, the StaySafe app also has additional features such as GPS tracking, a low battery alert and duress pin. I-Systems ran a successful one month trial of the app before deciding to roll out the solution. James Evans, Director, i-Systems explains their decision to work with StaySafe Business. Comprehensive range of features "StaySafe Business is a really easy to use and flexible solution which our employees can activate when they are working alone or in more risky environments" “StaySafe Business is a really easy to use and flexible solution which our employees can activate when they are working alone or in more risky environments. Not all our jobs require lone worker safety measures so the app is perfect for us as employees can easily switch it on and off depending on the work they are doing. StaySafe appealed to us because it has a very comprehensive range of features whilst still being easy to use. Employee feedback has been very positive as our engineers feel we are taking their safety seriously and are reassured that we could quickly respond in an emergency. We are now looking at rolling out the app to other areas of the business”. Don Cameron, CEO, StaySafe adds “The StaySafe Business app is a great solution for organisations like i-Systems who work on a project basis, who only need a lone worker solution for certain jobs. The app is always there on the employee’s smartphone ready to use when needed, but won’t take up any of their time checking in and out on days when they are in the office or part of a bigger team. Alternatively, if an employee will be doing a very high-risk job, the app can be set to prompt them to confirm they are safe at regular intervals – perhaps as frequently as every 10-15 minutes. This flexibility of use makes StaySafe Business the ideal solution to keep employees safe whatever their working pattern”.
