Regular Check-in And Location Tracking During COVID-19: Are Your Workers Safe Right Now?

The COVID-19 virus has impacted millions of lives around world, changing how we shop, affecting how we socialize and perhaps most significantly, transforming how we work. Because of the pandemic, most of us are now working from home and in other remote offices, trying our best to adapt to this very different world.  

Because of the major shift in the workplace, using a powerful worker location tracking system for your lone and remote employees can make world of difference for both their safety as well as your peace of mind. If a lone worker ever experiences an emergency and needs help, knowing their location will allow you to send the best help possible, as quickly as possible. Thankfully, satellite technologies have evolved to the point that nearly every smart device comes equipped with the ability to track and report GPS locations. Essentially, if your team members work remotely or alone, tracking their location is critical for managing their safety.   

Addressing your biggest fear 

As most, if not all, of your employees, are working outside of the office, it is an employer’s primary concern where their team is located and if they are safe. As a result of Bill C-45, which was passed in 2004, organizations have a legal duty to ensure the safety of their workers and the public. Failing to comply with the legislation, your organization could face serious penalties for violations that result in injuries and death. SafetyLine not only keeps your team safe but keeps your company safe as well.  

When was the last time your lone worker checked in? 

Do you know if your lone workers are ok and away from danger? SafetyLine requires remote workers to regularly check in, communicating to their manager that they are safe and sound. If the worker misses a check-in or indicates an emergency, SafetyLine will call for help. As workers check in throughout the day, GPS breadcrumbs will be dropped and recorded in SafetyLine. The users’ history allows you to see where the worker was today, the past week and the past month.

Dependable and accurate GPS technology 

On top of that, SafetyLine will report the location of the workers using highly reliable and accurate GPS technology. While it is important to record all the possible locations and addresses your employees could be working from, to ensure their safety even further, SafetyLine empowers employers to protect their workers more so through GPS maps and breadcrumbs.  

Only monitored at work 

As a remote worker, you might be a bit apprehensive about your manager knowing your whereabouts at all time. But there is no need to worry, SafetyLine only registers GPS information when the lone worker is logged in and actively monitored – it automatically turns off once they end their shift.  

In the case of an emergency, SafetyLine empowers you to send help to your worker in crisis quickly, preventing escalation and reducing the level of harm to the lone worker. Because of SafetyLine, managers now can receive a constant stream of real-time data on a lone worker’s exact location and wellness. Again, as this article’s headline asks, “Do you know if your workers are safe right now?”  

Monitoring workers who work from home 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, most of the workforce has moved to their homes, helping prevent the spread of the deadly virus. Due to these unprecedented circumstances, it is more imperative than ever to stay connected with your team members. As a manager, it is crucial that you know your team is safe during these volatile times. SafetyLine will keep you connected to your team while giving you priceless confirmation and peace of mind that they are safe.
