Clinton Devon Estates is a rural estate comprising 10,000 hectares across East and North Devon and in addition to farming and forestry, operates a range of rural businesses and a portfolio of residential and commercial property. The company’s lone workers are required to perform off-site duties, which range from independent site visits to using heavy machinery and working at height. Workers are also at risk when travelling between locations (as driving is reportedly the largest killer in the world) whilst staff who are obligated to enter tenant’s houses could be at risk of verbal or physical assault. Being based in the rural countryside also poses its own safety challenges, due to limited data connection and signal. To mitigate these risks Client Devon Estates launched the StaySafe app to protect and monitor their staff and give them a quick way to signal for help and be located in an emergency.
