Safe Check : Periodic status check
Safe Check is a periodic welfare ‘check-in’ system directly managed by the lone worker. They simply confirm their welfare by replying to automated prompts at set time intervals. Safe Check can be easily enabled on our app, and many of our dedicated devices.
Lone workers can select and amend the intervals, as needed, to suit their working practices.
At the end of the set interval, Safe Check will request a code from the worker. Once this is entered on the worker’s device or app, Safe Check resets and a new countdown interval begins.
Many lone workers have Safe Check enabled throughout their working day. But it can be particularly useful at specific times. For instance, it’s ideal for a worker visiting a service user or customer at their home. For others, it will come into its own when they’re leaving the office late at night and walking to a car park, or driving in poor weather.
In the event that a worker doesn’t respond, the issue is flagged at the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). The personal escalation process for that worker is then triggered, whether it’s a call to a line manager or an immediate dispatch call to emergency services.
