While working with a number of customers over the past few weeks we have unlocked lone worker functionality in our software that really assists with the knowledge of knowing where and when employees are moving into potentially dangerous situations. I remember many years ago my sister was working as a lone worker in community care in Dubbo where there were a number of very dangerous situations, my sister was simply trying to do her job to the best of her ability. My sisters employer actually did not know which home Michelle was visiting as Michelle could go out for 4 hours and go to multiple homes in one day based on incoming calls. I remember some of the stories where Michelle found herself in volatile situations. As a lone worker Michelle could only share information with the office after the fact.
While some systems exist for known dangerous situations for employees that can be quite costly what do you do when your employees may find themselves unexpectedly in a potentially dangerous situation.
Imagine if on arrival to a location you could register where you are with a GPS pin on a map and also nominate a level of risk that you feel about the visit. For example Low risk, Medium risk and High risk. You could also advise how many minutes the visit was going to go for, for example 30 minutes. Imagine if you had not signed out safe at 31 minutes, What if your office could be pinged a message to say you had not yet left the location? We could set up a trigger to fire at 31 minutes sending a message to the nominated person this issue would be escalated to.
Imagine if your employer was sent a message immediately to notify that you were going into a high risk situation. Imagine seeing all of your staff on a map with GPS allowing you to know how long each employee had been at the current location.
You can also turn on functionality to track the employee live from one location to another as they move around if this is required in your business.
This customer in community care wants to improve the current systems where currently there is no notification back at the office on the movements of the staff during the day until they return or a situation occurs.
