Accurate location tracking & messaging combined with powerful If-This-Then-That (IFTT) rules platform enable safety monitoring and compliance solutions for Field Service Employees.
Abaqus, Inc., today announced it has launched a new solution for companies trying improve the safety of their remote mobile workers. The solution combines powerful IFTT rules with real-time GPS location and status information to detect when an employee may be in danger and initiate an emergency response. Now companies can enhance Lone Worker safety while better complying with OSHA safety regulations and reducing liability risks
“Our employees visit clients’ homes to support community outreach for insurance firms and provider networks in order to enhance population health management strategies and compliance in States such as Michigan, Ohio, South Carolina et al. During these visits, the safety of our lone workers is of prime importance to us,” said Kyle Larner Program Manager at Arrow Strategies. “In addition to providing us a mobile solution for collecting data in the field, allGeo (previously known as myGeoTracking) implemented a custom safety protocol that detects when an employee arrives at a member’s home and initiates an “Are You OK” safety check phone call or text message to check on their status. The allGeo (previously known as myGeoTracking) mobile app also provides discrete actions that the field staff can take from their phone to alert us on any threats. These Alerts are sent to our backoffice operations centers via text,voice or email and tagged with user location, nearest emergency response number (such as PSAP 911) and other details. This comprehensive monitoring greatly allays the safety concerns of our field employees.”
“Our Customers in the home healthcare sector, in oil & gas and the utility industries are concerned about their employees safety while facing increasing liability and compliance challenges,” said Shailendra Jain, CEO of Abaqus, Inc. “Our solution utilizes a phone as a safety-monitoring device and can be customized for automated safety-check workflow & escalation based on events in the field. This feature complements our existing field data collection tools to greatly enhance & automate our customers’ field operations monitoring and management.”
There’s an estimated 53 million lone workers requiring safety solutions in the US, Canada and Europe – some 15% of the overall mobile work force, and growing.
