Easy-to-use lone worker app for field service roles and mobile workforce management

Our easy-to-use lone worker solution is ideal for those operating in field services, where employees come across a wide range of safety challenges that could leave them injured or incapacitated.

StaySafe is used by a range of field-based employees in the US and across the world, offering reliable protection by raising an alarm in an emergency even if a lone worker is unable to do so themselves.

How our lone worker safety app can support field services

Lone working has become commonplace for those working in field service roles. Many employees regularly travel between, and work on, sites alone or carry out work in empty properties and client homes. While working alone is usually safe, lone working brings with it additional risk, as any danger faced is faced alone.

The StaySafe mobile workforce management app ensures lone workers have a way to signal for help in any situation. A panic button can be used at any time, while missed check-in and session expiry alerts will send an alarm even if the lone worker cannot. Non-movement will be detected if an employee has been incapacitated, while a wearable button can be worn to detect falls.

Risks for lone workers in field service roles

Working across a range of environments and with hazardous equipment and materials, field service workers are exposed to some of the leading causes of workplace injuries and fatalities, such as:

  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Injuries from lifting/handling
  • Being struck by an object
  • Being injured by machinery
  • Falls from height

As well as these most common risks, field service workers are also exposed to other hazards which, if safety measures are not in place, can have detrimental consequences. For example:

  • Working near water
  • Working in confined spaces
  • Working with electricity
  • Working with hazardous substances
  • Driving
  • Working behind closed doors

Protect lone workers with StaySafe's trusted mobile workforce management solution

At StaySafe, we have specifically-designed functionality to overcome common challenges lone workers face in field service roles. A panic button can be pressed at any time to signal for help, while missed check-ins and Man Down alerts will notify someone even when a lone worker is unable to reach their phone.

The app also monitors the location of lone workers in real-time and allows them to check in safely once they have finished a lone working or travel session. A note-taking facility allows lone workers to add extra details to a session, such as where in a building they are based or when they are about to enter an area of low signal.

The StaySafe Monitoring Hub provides an accurate location and up-to-date safety status so that you always know where your employees are and that they are safe, even when travelling between different jobs during the day.

Why the field service industry loves the StaySafe monitoring solution

“Our employees find the app incredibly easy to use and line managers now feel they have more time to focus on other tasks while knowing they will be notified if a lone worker requires help.”

“StaySafe is a great tool with lots of really useful features. If an employee panics or misses a check-in and can’t be contacted, not only can we now locate which site they are working on, but also where they are on the site.”
