Meet your duty of care with our lone worker app

StaySafe’s lone working app enables you to protect and monitor your employees whilst they work, travel or meet with clients alone or in remote locations throughout the United Kingdom.

Quickly and easily turn any smart device into a lone worker safety tool

The StaySafe app has been designed for a simple user experience. It is quick, easy to use and fits effortlessly into the working day. 

As the app is installed on your employee’s smart device, it is generally always with them and charged. This also means there is less user resistance compared to a separate lone worker device.

With no capital outlay for hardware, our lone working app can be up and running in less than 24 hours, with minimal upfront investment. 


Key features of the StaySafe lone worker app

Timed sessions

Employees are able to start a timed session before they begin a period of lone work or travel. This triggers a countdown and activates a satellite GPS tracker, visible in the Hub. If an employee fails to end their session safely, a session expiry alert will be sent to the monitor.

Panic button

The panic button allows an employee to send an immediate panic alert if they are in trouble and need assistance. This alert can be triggered in the app at any time, even if a session is not running.

Duress PIN

If an employee is being forced by an attacker to terminate the app, a 'false pin' can be entered to appear as if the session has been cancelled when, in fact, a panic alarm has been triggered.

Low battery

Low battery warnings allow you to remind an employee to charge their phone if it is running low.

StaySafe App


Employees can set fixed check-in periods within a session. Employees are able to check in at any point within this time to confirm that they are safe and reset the clock. Failure to do so by the end of the timed period will raise a missed check-in.

Discreet panic

A panic alert can also be triggered discreetly using the phone's power button, allowing an alert to be raised discreetly from the user's pocket or handbag.

Man down

If an employee has not moved for a prolonged period of time and not checked in, a non-movement alert is triggered in case there has been an accident.

Audible alerts

Lone workers are prompted to check in or end their session in order to reduce false alerts.

Keep track of employee safety and location

The StaySafe app is linked to a secure cloud-based monitoring Hub which accurately locates your lone workers on a map and provides you with real-time updates on their movements.

If one of your employees fails to check in safely during a lone working session or raises an alert, a notification will pop up on screen as well as via SMS text and email, allowing you to locate them and get help straight away. 

The Hub also keeps an accurate log and allows you to report on previous lone worker sessions and alerts.

Cloud based monitoring hub

You can access the cloud-based StaySafe Hub from anywhere via your PC, table or phone and view exact employee locations and safety status on an interactive map. If an employee triggers an alert or fails to check in, notifications are sent on-screen and via text, email and automated phone calls allowing you to respond immediately.

View past sessions

Set up escalation policies and procedures

You can set up response procedures within the Hub to provide those monitoring your lone workers, known as responders, with written procedures to follow. You can tailor these procedures for each team depending on the level of risk that users face.

You can also manage how responders are notified in an incident. For each team, you can choose who is contacted and the order that they should be contacted in. You can also set notification preferences for each responder, depending on whether they wish to be contacted by SMS, email or phone call

The StaySafe app is linked to a secure cloud-based monitoring Hub which accurately locates your lone workers on a map and provides you with real-time updates on their movements. You can filter by teams or events, for example, panic alarms and missed sessions, so you can quickly respond to any incidents.

You can also create map overlays in-house to identify geographic assets that are important to you, such as sites and locations of high risk.

View past sessions


The Insights section of the Hub is designed to give you in-depth insights and show patterns and trends. You can, for instance, monitor how many sessions have been run by each employee and average session durations. You can also track how many alerts have been triggered over a certain time period.

You can also track the employee onboarding progress to see when users activate the app, run sessions and complete training.

Monitor and respond to alerts

Depending on the size of your team and resources, you can choose to monitor activity in the Hub in-house or outsource to one of our professional 24/7 monitoring and response partners. You can also combine both options to structure a bespoke service that meets your needs. 


Monitoring your employees in house via the StaySafe Hub is easy, low cost and eliminates the need for paper trails and routine check-in calls. The flexibility of the Hub allows you to decide how you manage your employees and alert responses. 


We also work alongside professional monitoring partners to offer round the clock monitoring  and response services for lone worker emergencies. Available 24/7, external monitoring is a great solution for those with minimal in-house resources, larger organisations or those who operate out of hours such as through the night. 

StaySafe offers 16% more coverage than any other lone worker app

The StaySafe app seamlessly switches between all available connections to offer the very best levels of connectivity and protection to your lone working employees.

Data is the first connection the StaySafe app attempts to make, but in areas where a signal cannot be located, low signal mode is automatically activated. While in low signal mode, session communications will continue to be sent to the hub via 2G SMS. Alerts and session functions will continue to operate as usual, with location data updating if an alert is triggered.

Working Data Connection

Data is the first connection the StaySafe app will attempt to make, whether this is through WiFi, 4G/3G or even GRPS and Edge.

2G Phone Signal

If you or your lone workers operate in areas where a Wi-Fi or data connection cannot always be made, the StaySafe app will automatically switch to Low Signal Mode. While in this mode, session functions and alerts will continue to be sent to the Hub via a 2G signal. The user's last known location will be shown in the Hub and updated when an alert is triggered.

No Data or 2G Signal

Session Expiry and Missed Check-in alerts do not require phone or data signal. This means that as long as the employee begins a session while connected, alerts will be sent if they fail to check-in. This provides a no-cost solution when signal is down.

Upon starting a session, the lone worker is able to add notes relating to their work. If they know they will be entering areas of low signal, adding details on their exact location could be particularly useful. Notes can be viewed in the Hub to provide information that could help the monitor respond to an alert.

When will I need low signal mode?

If your employees work in well populated, urban areas, it is very likely that they will be able to make a data connection. If, however, they work in rural areas with low levels of signal, or in buildings known to have poor data coverage, low signal mode is a vital method of communication. 

If your lone workers regularly travel to remote locations where there is no phone signal, StaySafe also work with satellite providers to offer reliable global coverage.

What our customers say about StaySafe

  • “The app and Hub itself are intuitive and easy to use with a great range of functions and alerts. The fact that employees start and end their own sessions has also gone down well as staff are in control of when they are being monitored rather than feeling we are tracking them intrusively.”

    Nick Coley

    Head of Telecare, St Johns
  • “Our workers out in the field now feel reassured that they will receive help should they ever require it even in remote areas or while working out of hours. With the ability to set up check-in intervals, which we have set for every half hour, we are immediately alerted if an employee fails to check-in and we can send them the appropriate assistance.”

    Padraic Dolan

    HSEQ Manager, Celtic Water
  • “Switching to the StaySafe solution has proven more reliable, more user-friendly and much more efficient for lone workers and their managers. We now feel assured and wise to where our staff are which is of utmost importance as schedules can change last minute, and our staff are regularly in contact with members of the public that they have never met with before.”
