Lone worker safety: a snapshot of operations in North America
Survey reveals 19% of lone workers have struggled to get help after an accident. Learn how lone workers can remain safe and connected when out of cellular range. […]
With lone workers estimated at 53 million across the UK, Europe and USA, determining a tracking and communication plan will reduce the chance of accidents (source: LoneAlert), ensure swift response times in the case of an emergency, give your team members the peace of mind they’re being supported, and encourage the use of two-way alerts and notifications.
However, lone workers in remote areas may be well out of reach of cellular network access, leaving them exposed in terms of their safety, their ability to efficiently report back to their base of operations, and the base’s ability to coordinate and communicate effectively with their workers. That’s where Ground Control can help.
When you have workers in remote, hostile environments, you can’t compromise on your team’s safety. Ground Control enables you to track, communicate with, and coordinate your lone workers when they’re outside of cellular connectivity.
Ground Control offers a variety of solutions to enable two-way communications with your lone workers. Our mobile satellite internet equipment and services can be added to trucks, trailers, vehicles and RVs, giving you a mobile office with high-speed internet and phone, with the bandwidth for live video broadcasting.
For accurate, virtually real-time tracking, our range of satellite phones and two-way messenger devices give you a wealth of choice – and our expert team are on-hand to help you navigate this, and find the best solution for your business and budget.
Various horticultural organisations have approached us over the last few years to provide remote worker tracking for their field workers.
We provide RockSTAR units to a large number of marine security and anti-piracy firms worldwide. They provide accurate tracking, allowing the position of your teams/vessels to be monitored while in transit. They also give a secure and private means of communication for onboard team leaders.
Enabling your lone workers with devices that keep them safe and connected with both the office and their loved ones is critical. The Toughsat XP is the most high powered of these devices, enabling video streaming; it can be fixed to vehicles or buildings, or simply placed on the ground. At the other end of the scale, the RockSTAR delivers global tracking and short, two-way messages such as emails, texts and social media updates.
