Guardian24’s lone worker safety app now available on Google Play store

Guardian24 has released its lone worker protection app on the Google Play store. Installing the app directly from the play store provides end users with a quicker and easier download of the app. It also gives the user automatic notifications when a new version of the app is released or when an upgrade is available.

Guardian24 is a lone worker safety service used to protect staff when lone working, travelling to and from work, visiting clients in their homes and businesses and when working in isolation on remote sites. It allows lone workers to log in and out of daily tasks, leaving details of their location and the expected duration (logging an activity).

If an activity overruns, Guardian24 will automatically call the lone worker to verify their safety. If the lone worker cannot be reached, a nominated respondent will then be notified informing them of the overrun activity. At this stage an agreed protocol will be followed to verify the lone worker’s safety and location.

Should the lone worker feel that their safety has been compromised at any time they can press a ‘hot key’ on their device to summon emergency assistance. At this point, Guardian24 provides the lone worker’s personal details, activity details and live audio to the respondent receiving the escalated call.

The respondent may then call the incident helpline and connect to a live feed through the user’s handset for further emergency audio. This information is invaluable if the emergency services require to be notified.
