Some AMA staff members are required to work alone. Lone workers have been in situations where they have been threatened by customers on the motorway network, and other cases where there is threat of animal attacks. It is a Worksafe requirement to manage health and safety risks of a worker who performs remote or isolated work.
After researching and trialling various products, “SoloProtect” has been chosen to manage this risk. SoloProtect ID is a smart identify badge, able to communicate GPS and audio to a NZ based support centre at the push of a button 24/7. It also has an auto ‘Worker Down’ detection function.
Estimated results and savings
The Soloprotect ID is sleek and small, and retains the distinct advantage of being styled as an identity card holder, thus facilitating easy wear and discreet use whilst giving peace of mind to both the user and employer.
