This active industry continues to explore ways to help minimize risk and ensure a safer working environment for their employees. But due to economics and man-power shortages, there are many situations whereby employees are required to work alone. Although not all tasks are considered high risk and do not require more than one individual to perform, the danger of an employee working in a remote location by themselves outside of cell coverage is heightened.
Last month Delorme introduced a new product called the inReach SE Satellite Communicator. This device provides an SOS Emergency button, along with the ability to perform two-way messaging to any cell phone or email address. With 100% global coverage, an employee can be anywhere in the world and be able to communicate back to their head office, to their manager or to other employees. A simple Check In button allows employees to quickly and easily confirm that they are okay and provide work alone safety compliance.
With new technology likes this now available, it is now safer to go in to the woods alone!
