Man Down and Lone Worker features ensure injured workers are able to call for help and lets you keep track of where your workers are at all times.
When you are working alone, especially in environments where there is a risk of injury or rough terrain such as a farm, it is essential to have communication options available. One of the best ways to protect yourself from tragedy and potential legal implications is with a modern and fully functioning two way radio system, many of which can be equipped with features specifically made for lone workers, such as ‘man down.’ Man Down and Lone Worker features ensure injured workers are able to call for help and lets you keep track of where your workers are at all times.
The way that ‘Man Down’ works is that your worker is moving in an abnormal way, or is at a different angle than they would usually be (for example if they are primarily standing, but the radio shows that they are lying down) for an extended period of time, an alert will be sent to the user. If the user does not respond, a message will be sent to a ‘control radio’ that has been determined beforehand. Some radios also can use a feature called 'Hot Mic,' which allows the microphone on the radio to automatically switch on, meaning the person who is affected can talk without needing to be able to move. Not all radios are compatible with ‘Man Down’ technology however, as it has to be installed into the individual radio. Talk to one of the skilled professionals at Mobicomm to find out how you can integrate ‘Man Down’ into your communications system.
Lone Worker technology works using GPS signals, allowing supervisors to see where their workers are on their site. This is especially useful if you are on a large farm and there are people working alone. If there is rough terrain or an accident happens, the supervisor will know where they can send help to immediately. This ensures that your workers are as safe as possible at all times, and can prevent further complications.
