Maintenance and Service Department – Lone Worker App
Our Maintenance and Service Department recently implemented a new control measure in the protection of lone working employees.
‘Guardian 24’ provide an app downloadable to a smartphone that has the following safety measures:
- Panic alarm function;
- Timed activity log;
- GPS location capability;
The app links to a 24 hour control centre that monitors and reacts to any alarms triggered.
We aim to avoid lone working wherever possible but, when it is required, do all we can to ensure the safety of our employees.
The app was identified as a real opportunity to increase safety standards and is being viewed with the potential of being utilised elsewhere within the company.
