Man Down/Lone Worker feature
The lone worker function is ideal for the use of workers operating in hazardous environments or those who are undertaking tasks for periods of time without contact with co-workers. This feature provides confidence to staff members and adheres to a number of WH&S requirements. The employer can have peace of mind that they are monitoring and controlling the safety of workers.
This function can be customised depending on your environment and concerns. The man down feature can be programmed to many different variables:
- Vertical or horizontal tilting (e.g. fallen worker)
- Excessive or lack of motion (the latter is in a genuine ‘mandown’ situation)
- Pressing the panic button
- Inactivity after a set time
- Non response to set interval messages
Working in such environments requires the highest standard of service and technology to ensure your business continues to operate efficiently and safely.
