A Lone Worker can be easily protected using a GPRS or satellite handset, with coverage on land or at sea. Our software enables comprehensive lone worker monitoring including geofence safety & hazard zone plus 'SOS' alerts. All events are logged for detailed reporting which can be used for 'health & safety' compliance records. The reporting software enables easy organisation of workers arranged by groups or locations, with permission-based secure logins.
The main consideration in selecting handsets is the availablity of cellular or satellite communication in the area you want to monitor. Satellite will operate in most outdoor locations, but not inside buildings. Cellular/GPRS needs mobile network coverage, but can operate where there is an in-building antenna system in use. GPRS is also much cheaper (see DQ30 subscription cost) when very short tracking intervals are required, either for higher security purposes or more accurate GPS location fixing.
If your application is for just one handset or a whole fleet, please get in touch, we'll be happy to help.
