Easy to use lone worker app for the Utilities Sector

Our easy to use lone worker solution is ideal for those operating in the utilities sector, where employees come across a wide range of safety challenges that could leave them injured and incapacitated.

StaySafe is used by a range of utility companies across the world and offers reliable protection by raising an alarm in an emergency even if a lone worker is unable to do so themselves.

How our safety app can support the utilities sector

Lone working has become commonplace for those working in the utilities sector. Many employees regularly travel between, and work on sites alone or carry out work in empty properties and client homes. While working alone is usually safe, lone working brings with it additional risk as any danger faced, is faced alone.

The StaySafe app ensures lone workers have a way to signal for help in any situation. A panic button can be used at any time, while missed check-in and session expiry alerts will send an alarm even when the lone worker can’t. Non-movement will detect if an employee has been incapacitated while a wearable button can be worn to detect falls.

Risks for lone workers in the utilities sector

Working across a range of potentially dangerous environments and with hazardous equipment and materials, utility workers are exposed to some of the top causes of workplace accidents and fatalities such as;

  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Injuries from lifting/handling
  • Being struck by an object
  • Being injured by machinery
  • Falls from height

As well as these most common risks, utility workers are also exposed to other hazards which, if safety measures are not in place, can have detrimental consequences. For example;

  • Working near water
  • Working in confined spaces
  • Working with electricity
  • Working with hazardous substances
  • Driving
  • Working behind closed doors

How StaySafe helps protect your lone workers in the utilities industry

At StaySafe we have specifically designed functionality to overcome common lone workers challenges faced in the utilities industry. A panic button can be pressed at any time to signal for help, while missed check-ins and man-down alerts will notify someone even when a lone worker is unable to reach their phone.

The app also monitors the location of lone workers in real-time and allows them to check-in safely once they have finished a lone working or travel session. A note taking facility allows lone workers to add extra details to a session such as where in a building they are based or when they are about to enter an area of low signal.

The StaySafe monitoring hub provides an accurate location and up to date safety status so that you always know where your employees are and if they are safe, even when travelling between different jobs during the day. 


Why the utilities sector loves the StaySafe monitoring solution

“Our workers out in the field now feel reassured that they will receive help should they ever require it even in remote areas or while working out of hours.”

Padraic Dolan

HSEQ Manager, Celtic Water

“StaySafe is an efficient and value saving solution that allows us to monitor all of our front-line employees distributed over a large geographical spread, from one place.”

A-Jay Medwid

, Operations Effectiveness, TransGas (division of SaskEnergy)

“The app and Hub itself are intuitive and easy to use with a great range of functions and alerts. The fact that employees start and end their own sessions has also gone down well as staff are in control of when they are being monitored rather than feeling we are tracking them intrusively.”

Nick Coley

Head of Telecare, St John National Headquarters, New Zealand

“Our workers out in the field now feel reassured that they will receive help should they ever require it even in remote areas or while working out of hours. With the ability to set up check-in intervals, which we have set for every half hour, we are immediately alerted if an employee fails to check-in and we can send them the appropriate assistance.”

Padraic Dolan

HSEQ Manager, Celtic Water

“Switching to the StaySafe solution has proven more reliable, more user-friendly and much more efficient for lone workers and their managers. We now feel assured and wise to where our staff are which is of utmost importance as schedules can change last minute, and our staff are regularly in contact with members of the public that they have never met with before.”
