StaySafe Business offers lone worker protection. It is a safety app that can track the location of lone workers in real-time and enable them to check-in safely after appointments, meetings and lone working sessions, whilst employers have full visibility through a secure, online hub.
IMPORTANT! TO USE THIS APP YOUR EMPLOYER MUST HAVE SIGNED UP TO THE STAYSAFE BUSINESS SOLUTION AND PROVIDED YOU WITH LOGIN DETAILS.
HOW IT WORKS
The app automatically alerts emergency contacts at your work place if you fail to check-in safely after lone working or if you raise an alert. It transmits your location to a secure, online hub where your employer can see your location on a map and send help to you.
StaySafe Business app is simple to use:
- Press Start Session
- Set the duration/end time of your lone working session
- The app will use your device’s location services to determine your current position
- Confirm your location on the map
- Add any notes about the nature of your lone working session
- Press continue to start tracking.
Once your session is running you can safely end it, extend it or hit the panic button at any time.
StaySafe Business gives you and your employer peace of mind when you attend meetings or appointments alone, travel alone or when you are working in an isolated location.
The app has a number of different alert options to get help to you quickly.
Panic – Hit the Panic alert button to instantly trigger an alert to your emergency contact if you are in trouble. You can panic at any time, not just when running a session. As well as the Panic button there are a number of alerts that are sent automatically. These are sent to your emergency contacts if you don’t enter your PIN number into the app to confirm you are safe.
Session Expired – If you don’t enter your PIN to cancel tracking when you have finished working alone the app will automatically send an alert to your emergency contact to tell them you may need help.
Duress – Enter a Duress PIN if you are being forced to shut down the app by an attacker. This fools the attacker into thinking you have cancelled tracking but instead it alerts your emergency contacts that you are under duress.
Non Movement – If your phone senses that you have not moved after 10 minutes then it will automatically send an alert to your emergency contacts to tell them you may be injured, unconscious or unable to move.
Low Battery – If your phone battery is 5% or less the app will automatically send an alert to your emergency contact to tell them you may need help.
