Enhancing the Safety of Lone Workers with Active Track by Guard Patrol Products
In today’s world where safety is paramount, lone workers face challenges. These dedicated individuals, such as night shift guards, workers on isolated floors, and machinery maintenance personnel, often work in solitude, far removed from their colleagues.
As an employer, it is your ethical and legal responsibility to safeguard the well-being of these lone workers. But how do you constantly monitor lone workers without letting your overall efficiency drop?
Let’s explore the importance of protecting lone workers and introduce an innovative solution, Active Track by Guard Patrol Products, designed to enhance their safety.
Why Protect Lone Workers?
Working alone can be a daunting experience, especially during emergencies. Lone workers can be more vulnerable to accidents. Therefore it is crucial for employers to take proactive measures to protect them.
One of the fundamental ways to protect lone workers is via regular check-ins. Since these individuals often operate remotely, it’s essential to establish a system for periodic check-ins. This not only ensures their well-being but also allows immediate identification of any issues if a worker misses a check-in.
Incorporating GPS technology for safeguarding lone workers. These devices allow you to monitor their whereabouts in real time, ensuring they are at their designated post and safe. This enhances their safety and prevents potential misuse of work hours.
While regular check-ins are beneficial, it is equally important to establish a reliable communication plan. In case of an emergency during their shift, lone workers should know how to contact the right individuals. A well-defined communication plan that includes contact details and procedures can be a lifeline in critical situations.
Lone worker safety can be significantly enhanced by investing in the right technology. However, it’s not just about having the technology; it’s about ensuring your workers are trained to use it effectively. Underline the safety benefits and other advantages of using this technology.
Introducing: Active Track by Guard Patrol Products
One such technology that checks all the right boxes and more is Active Track, a real-time monitoring system by Guard Patrol Products. This compact handheld device is equipped with a dedicated GPS, Read Checkpoint, Call Me, and Panic buttons. These features enable two-way voice communication, making it the ideal choice for lone worker protection.
The quad-band GSM functionality allows for fixed calls, SMS, and data usage to prevent misuse. The ‘Call Me’ button can be programmed to call a specific number or trigger an alert for the system to call back. With GPS tracking, you can always pinpoint the exact location of your lone workers, offering an extra layer of security.
Active Track also features an RFID reader for reading RFID tags, providing proof of presence. In addition, it incorporates safety elements like a panic alarm and man-down alert. The man-down alert activates when the motion sensor detects a significant change in the pre-configured position and angles. To ensure the device’s safety, a tamper detection alert informs you of any attempts to force open the device or subject it to excessive force.
Powered by Active View, a web-based management portal, Active Track lets you track and connect with Active Track devices, offering comprehensive oversight.
