Lone Worker Safety - in built GPS tracking and alert systemYou may have employees or contractors who are alone when the perform their duties. The duty may be hazardous or the duty may be routine but in a remote location. A lone worker faces a greater security risk, expecially if they are confronted with a violent situation single handed.

As an employer you are required to considered the health and safety aspects of lone workers. And if you are an independant contractor you need to ensure you are protecting your own health and safety.

The Halo Guard Lone Worker GPS Safety System addresses the concerns of Lone Worker Safety through a single device that is the size of a mobile phone. With a double key press on the (to indicate a potentially harmful situation) the Lone Worker can send an alert to a 24/7 emergency response centre. The emergency response centre will then listen in discretely and wait for the Lone Worker to acknowledge (it may not be safe to do so). The emergency response centre can see the position of the Lone Worker by real time GPS. The audio activity at the location is recorded. If there is a situation that requires intervention an agreed emergency procedure is initiated.

The Halo Guard Lone Worker GPS System operates on separate communication protocols and can send SMS (text) alerts via multiple carriers and will continue to send messages until a message gets through.
