New app aims to ensure the safety of water sector employees working alone

StaySafe is an app and surrounding cloud-based monitoring service which tracks a lone worker’s location in real-time and alerts their manager if they do not check-in within a specified time. Staff are also prompted to check-in via the app every half an hour, ensuring that Celtic Anglian Water receives regular positive affirmation that their staff are safe and not in need of assistance.
“Ensuring the safety of our employees is of top priority, especially due to the high-risk nature of the water industry” comments Padraic Dolan, HSEQ Manager at Celtic Water. “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.”
Celtic Anglian Water selected an app as an adaptable solution due to staff carrying smartphones daily and having them integrated with their routines. To encourage the use of the app, several posters were put up at worksites to remind employees to start a session before they begin work. Additionally, workers are also able to link the app via bluetooth to a small wearable button so that they can signal for help quickly and without having to access their phones.
Don Cameron, StaySafe’s CEO, adds: “Employees in the utilities and field services sectors can be vulnerable as they are frequently required to work and travel to sites alone, often outside of normal working hours. (…) StaySafe provides a way for organisations to know exactly where staff are and if they are safe – with the added bonus of using equipment staff already carry”.
