If a mobile worker or lone worker is exposed to hazardous gas, dangerous weather, or has a medical emergency how will you know? If you do find out, will you know where to send help? Managing a mobile workforce presents its own set of challenges, from ensuring lone workers are safe to knowing they are productive. Today, nearly every industry deploys mobile workers, including oil and gas, utilities, water treatment, and chemical manufacturing.
Monitoring, Escalation, and Response
One way to improve mobile and lone worker safety is to connect them to safety contacts through live monitoring software. Our live monitoring solution for mobile and lone workers, iNet® Now, sends location, gas readings, and real-time alerts from personal gas monitors and area monitors to a cloud-based live monitoring software so you can easily monitor, escalate, and respond in an emergency. Safety managers can gain real-time visibility into the location and wellbeing of mobile workers in remote areas. Instant notifications through text message, email, and on-screen alerts allow for quick response in the event of a gas alarm, man-down, or panic situation.
The location and type of network coverage available determine which gateway you need to receive real-time gas readings. For monitoring mobile or lone workers in remote locations, a cellular/satellite vehicle-mounted gateway, like the TGX™ Gateway, is ideal. For on-site mobile workers, the RGX™ Gateway offers cellular, wi-fi, or Ethernet connectivity options.
Eliminate tedious manual check-in processes and improve productivity with automatic updates to worker status and location information on a map that updates as often as every 60 seconds.
Many companies rely on manual check ins for their lone worker policy, but if you rely on manual check ins, your workers are at risk. Instead, use a lone worker monitoring system with multiple connectivity options specifically designed to address the safety challenges lone workers face day in and day out.
