Case studies

Sircle

“The surveyors at Sircle often find themselves as lone workers on a range of property types - residential, commercial, and public sector. Since the company was established in 1992, we have never had a lone worker incident, and we want it to remain this way” says Anthony Walker, Director at Sircle. 

 

Sircle is a multi-disciplinary surveying practice that operates across UK and Europe – they provide a range of services linked to the built environment. They have been using the StaySafe app since 2023 to protect their surveyors when working. 

Before using StaySafe, Sircle had a defined process to manage lone workers which involved a lone worker register and follow up calls on completion of the survey to support their surveyors. 

 “Our surveyors would make a call to an internal colleague, who would manually record and manage the register. The process worked, but we wanted to explore what else we could do to improve the process that would be more effective and efficient, with the key requirement to ensure our surveyors were safe when working on site. In addition, we wanted to give our clients the reassurance of our focus on health and safety when visiting their sites.”

“I became aware of StaySafe from articles I read about the app online,” explained Walker.  

Sircle then booked a demo, and decided StaySafe was the best solution that would meet their requirements. 

“We were impressed by the ease-of-use. We needed a simple process to support staff safety when they are working alone,” continues Walker. 

“The app gives our surveyors that extra level of comfort that risks are being well managed and mitigated.” 

 The onboarding and support from StaySafe helped Sircle to get up-and-running quickly. 

“We had strong engagement from day one, and the support StaySafe gave us was clear and helpful. They were very knowledgeable of the challenges our lone workers could face on site.”  

StaySafe has brought many benefits to Sircle’s safety processes. 

“The feedback from our surveyors has been very positive who value that the business has invested in an app that enhances their safety.” 

“We know we have a more effective process, which is easier to use – this has significantly improved lone worker safety. Our team can use their time more effectively to manage processes. In addition, new employees can easily and quickly get up to speed with the app. It is simple to follow, which is one of its strengths.” 

“The features such as the panic button are essential should there ever be an emergency. The notes section allows surveyors to give us any extra detail on their visits, and driving mode is very useful for when they are travelling between appointments.” 

“We use the hub in-house. It helps us to check if staff are logging in and using the app when on site. If they haven’t, we can send them a reminder straight from the hub. The usage reports also help us to identify and ensure if everyone is safe and using the app when they need to.” 

“StaySafe is a simple, effective lone worker safety app; I would recommend it to anyone looking for a solution,” finishes Walker.
