Phones are more an essential part of many of our daily routines. For some of us, they’re essential tools we need to perform our jobs, and sometimes our only means of contact with anyone else. For all the developments that have gone into making phones as powerful, slim, and feature-rich as they are, they’re more vulnerable to cold weather than ever.
In the third part of our January Tech Check, we’re looking at technologies available to protect lone workers. SafetyLine supports a variety of technologies, which means that you may have a tough decision when it comes to purchasing devices. In this guide, we’ll break down the capabilities of each device, and outline some common usage scenarios.
When it comes to finding a safety monitoring solution, there are many decisions to make.
