Guardian24 has added its lone-worker safety app to the Google Play Store, making it faster to download and easier to keep up to date with the latest version of the app or when an upgrade is available.
Guardian24’s app enables lone workers to log in and out of daily tasks, leaving details of their location and the expected duration of the task. If an activity overruns, Guardian24 automatically calls the lone worker to confirm their safety. If the lone worker can’t be reached, a nominated person will be notified to inform them of the overrun. At this stage, an agreed protocol can be followed to verify the lone worker’s safety and location.
Should the worker feel in danger or become injured, they can press a ‘hot’ key on their smartphone or tablet to summon assistance. At this point, Guardian24 provides the lone worker’s personal details, activity details and live audio to the respondent receiving the escalated call. The respondent can then call the incident helpline.
