What is Lone Working?

Lone working is a term applied to such roles where employees may work by themselves without close supervision or, in the case of mobile workers, where employees work away from their fixed base. They may work in the field or at premises which are otherwise unattended. Their work may also bring them in to contact with customers or members of the public, but they spend a large part, or majority of their time alone. This makes it much more important to stay in touch with your employees.

PageOne has developed a range of Lone Worker alerting systems to help safeguard vulnerable staff, and ensure employers are meeting their duty of care.

Our Services

PageOne offers a variety of Lone Worker Solutions to keep in touch with your staff, including Location-Based Pagers and Smartphone Apps that can monitor staff location and safety.

Our most sophisticated devices allow users to send a geotagged SOS alert and can even send alerts automatically by detecting potentially injury-causing falls, trips, inactivity and impacts.

How do Lone Worker alarms work & what are the benefits?

PageOne’s range of Lone Worker Devices and Apps provide lone workers with an SOS alarm function that when activated will forward a geo-tagged, audible and visible alert. The alert can also be escalated to another individual, call centre, or a group of pre-selected land or mobile telephone number(s) in order to ensure that an alert is not missed.

Fast Response

Being GPS-enabled the device location is automatically tagged to the alert message. Connect and Flare accounts display this graphically on a map, allowing the individual receiving the alert to identify the identity and location of the lone-worker. A response team can be informed immediately and quickly directed to the lone-worker, reducing both the potential search time and the delay before medical treatment that may be required.

Integrated Messaging

PageOne’s Lone Worker solutions integrate seamlessly with both Connect and Flare cloud-based messaging suites, as well as third party systems. A live dashboard view shows the current status of all active Lone Workers and a full log (and audit trail) of staff messages and locations can also be viewed via PageOne’s online account.

Your employees can feel safe, assured with the knowledge that they have the tools to stay in touch or call for help when they need it most.

Responder 2-way SOS Pager

PageOne’s two-way Responder device offers reliable two-way communication with the speed, assurance and reach of traditional paging coupled with the capacity to acknowledge and respond to paging broadcasts. More importantly, the technology embedded within the Responder Pager also supports an emergency SOS alarm button and GPS location positioning.

Responder Smartphone App

Available for Blackberry, iPhone and Android devices the Responder App includes a specific Lone Worker and SOS mode, which when activated requires the user to acknowledge a periodic welfare-check. Failure to do so generates an SOS alarm combined with the last known GPS location.
