#1 Trusted Lone Worker App

Our lone worker app has been accredited with BS8484: 2016, the lone worker & vulnerable people protection standard of quality and safety trusted by organisations.

Get Immediate Help with Just One Click

Give your people the peace of mind that help is only one click away. A lone worker can discreetly activate the alarm to initiate a two-way voice call with either our alarm monitoring staff or your designated responders. 

Responders have additional contextual information automatically sent to them, such as a live map of the worker’s location, relevant personal and organisation information, and preset escalation procedures for handling alarm calls.

Timed Check-Ins

Timed Check-Ins

Set a timed check-in so you know your staff are safe and well. When the check-in period expires, the user will receive a notification asking them to confirm they are okay. An automatic alarm will be raised if they fail to respond.

Add context with voice and note updates

Lone workers can add voice or written updates about what they are doing, where they are going, who they are visiting, and so on. This contextual information is logged on the user’s timeline within Protector. 

If the alarm is activated, either proactively or via a missed check-in, the responder can access the updates to gain better insights into what may have happened and aid in a timely, positive response.

Vatix Lone Worker App

Who is the lone worker app for?

Organisations who provide mobile phones or have a bring-your-own-device policy may favour using an app rather than a device. It is also beneficial for lone workers who need to regularly check-in or add safety updates to their profile. 

The app makes the user experience seamless because it utilises the mobile phone that users are already familiar with.
