Many businesses in many industries have a number of workers who work alone in situations that could be potentially life threatening. From gas work to social work, it’s important that you look after your staff while they are working for you. It can be difficult to know if they are okay when they are working alone. 

Here at Ketrel Communications, we’re here to help. We create for you to rent or purchase our lone worker device. We offer a number of different lone worker and man down solutions that have been designed to make sure that you can rest assured that your lone worker will be able to contact you should they find themselves in danger.

What is a Lone Worker Device?

A lone worker device is a discreet and undetectable device or app, that allows employees to communicate with their employers or emergency services. Whichever type you choose, we can make sure that communication is swift and tailored for your specific needs. The key to an effective lone worker device is to make sure that it is useable, even when the worker is incapacitated in one way or another. This means that they don’t have to worry about putting in codes or passwords in order to get help. Our solutions vary from a simple radio to radio alerts to offsite telephones and dispatch alerting. Whichever you choose really does depend on where you work and what jobs you have. 

What Solutions do We Offer?

Radio to radio is a simple yet effective solution, this system involves an alarm being sent via radio to let other members of your team know that there is a problem. This is a lone worker device in its simplest form. It is ideal for workers on the same site as their team, though perhaps in a different area, ensuring that help can come quickly. The fact that the alert is sent to all other radios on that channel makes it ideal for onsite work. It’s also incredibly convenient because we offer it as a standard feature on all of our digital ATEX radios. 

Offsite alerting is a lone worker device that has a slightly further reach and is really useful for unaccompanied employees on a visit to a separate location. There are always times in any industry where visiting a site alone can be hugely dangerous but sometimes necessary. In these cases our offsite alerting lone worker devices can help to keep your employees safe in these situations. Failure to stop the device will cause the man-down alarm to trigger a phone call with a pre-recorded message to a chosen number.
