Lone working security systems for the Real Estate industry

Our easy-to-use lone worker safety solution is ideal for those operating in the Real Estate sector, where visiting client homes and empty properties is common practice.

StaySafe is used by a range of real estate agents and property developers in the US and around the world. The app offers reliable protection from commonly-faced challenges, such as violence and aggression, slips, trips and falls, and other common causes of accidental injury.

How our safety app can support the Real Estate industry

Lone working has become commonplace for many working in the property sector, with employees regularly carrying out maintenance, building work and meeting with clients, alone and away from the office. While working alone is usually safe, lone working brings with it additional risk, as any danger faced is faced alone.

The StaySafe lone worker monitoring app ensures your 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 a Man Down alarm even if the lone worker cannot. If an employee is faced with an aggressor, a panic alert can be triggered discreetly. A Duress PIN can also be used to trick the aggressor into thinking the app has been closed when, in fact, a high priority alarm has been triggered.

Risks for lone workers in the Real Estate industry

Lone workers operating in the Real Estate industry face potentially challenging situations, as they enter client homes alone, work late hours, carry out maintenance and may deal with sensitive situations, such as evictions. Such environments mean that employees in all areas of Real Estate can find themselves exposed to a range of environmental and interpersonal risk. Realtors in the US, for example, frequently meet with clients in unoccupied apartment complexes and communities as part of their sales process.

  • Environmental risk

Working in locations away from the office which haven’t been risk assessed can expose employees to common workplace hazards such as slips, trips, falls and electrocution. Carrying out maintenance or construction work on properties comes with a range of potential hazards, especially when working on unstable structures, at height or when using heavy equipment or machinery.

  • Road accidents when working alone

Travelling on the road is one of the greatest and most uncontrollable risks workers around the world face each day. Travel risks are not always immediately considered, yet many employees regularly spend time travelling between appointments and properties.

  • Violence and aggression

Unfortunately, violence and aggression does occur within the Real Estate industry, particularly for those in Real Estate who meet with clients alone and behind closed doors.

  • Ill health

If a lone worker suffers a medical emergency such as a heart attack or fainting, receiving immediate support and alerting emergency services could prove difficult without nearby colleagues.

How StaySafe helps protect your lone workers

At StaySafe we have specifically-designed functionality to overcome common lone worker challenges faced in the Real Estate sector. A Man Down alarm and missed check-in alerts will ensure someone is alerted in the event of an accident, while a discreet panic provides a way to signal for help without aggravating a tense situation.

The lone worker safety 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 the type of work they are carrying out.

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 schedules change last minute.


Why the property sector loves the StaySafe monitoring solution
  •  “StaySafe’s unique features allow us to overcome common safety challenges in the property sector and we now feel assured that we will be alerted whenever our lone workers are in need of help. Having a solution that was easy to implement was a priority for us so that our employees were open to making the change from our more traditional methods. Our account manager Teresa made the transition incredibly easy and was extremely helpful at all stages. Teresa made sure any questions we had were answered and we are all very happy with the results. Her continued help and guidance has been much appreciated.”
