Compliant with BS8484:2022 standards, it’s the definitive safety tool for iOS and Android users.

Effortless Integration, Rapid Activation

Our Lone Worker App is designed for simplicity and ease of use, ensuring quick adoption with minimal training. Being app-based, it facilitates fast deployment across your team, streamlining the implementation process.

Red Alert: A swift emergency alarm connecting the worker to a trained operative at the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) for immediate assistance and potential emergency service escalation.
Yellow Alert: Allows workers to record a voice memo detailing their location or task, providing valuable context for enhanced support if an alarm is raised.
Safe Check: A timed check-in system to verify worker well-being. If no response is received within a set period, it triggers an alert to the ARC.
Group Alert: Sends updates or important information to a predefined group of staff or specific individuals, especially useful for lone workers in a particular area.
Safe Beacon: Safe Beacon’s geofencing and virtual perimeter features offer additional safety for workers in complex environments. As workers enter a Safe Beacon-protected area, they receive customisable alerts on their lone working devices, compatible with smartphones and intrinsically safe devices. These alerts range from proactive safety warnings to dynamic risk notifications, adapting to the specific environment.
GPS Locate: Increases visibility of lone workers by updating their location every 10 minutes or upon alarm activation.
Worker Down Alert: Ideal for hazardous environments like construction sites, this alarm uses motion sensors to detect lack of movement or impact, automatically alerting in case of concerns.

Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC)

Totalmobile’s state-of-the-art Alarm Receiving Centres (ARC) offer unrivalled support for lone workers. Our ARCs operate 24/7, 365 days a year, ensuring every call for assistance is answered by expertly trained support officers.

Setting The Industry Standard

We adhere to the highest industry standards, with accreditations including BS8484:2022 and ISO 27001. In emergencies, our direct police escalation capability through our Unique Reference Number (URN) bypasses the need for conventional 999 calls, saving crucial time. If there is a false alarm, the worker can tell the ARC to stand down.

Virtual buddy

Red Alerts can be used as a virtual buddy connection to the ARC. The ARC operative will stay on the call with a worker should they feel at risk.

Active Listening

ARC staff use the initial seconds of the call for active listening in case a vulnerable worker can’t speak freely. Calls are recorded, and the recordings are admissible as evidence in court, assuring the highest levels of compliance.

Management Portal

Whichever device they use, lone workers’ system activity can be managed through one single interface.

Unlimited staff and tailored profiles

Our Lone Worker solution includes an easy-to-use web-based management system that supports an unlimited number of tailored staff profiles across multiple devices. It allocates personal escalation and response protocols for each system user’s protection, according to their individual risk assessment. Different protection and monitoring features can be activated or de-activated as necessary, should an individual’s job function change. The system even allows for workers to have shared or pooled devices, to keep costs down and to offer maximum protection.

Over 1,400 SOS Fobs deployed and in active use across the organisation
