3 Key Risks for Healthcare
The Healthcare industry is limited in resources and may require staff to undertake jobs alone and unsupervised. Especially during a time of pandemic there becomes an increase in working alone risks. Violence, aggression, medical emergencies and many more are many risks that lone workers in the healthcare industry can be exposed to.
Travel may be required by healthcare workers to visit clients in person. Fatigue and the potential of getting lost are some factors that could increase the risk to their safety on the job.
Unreliable or no-reception
Many workers may find themselves in work environments with poor mobile reception or even worse none at all. There is always a possibility of health risks, no matter what situation you are in. A lack of access and ability to call for help if the situation requires is a big risk.
The ability to trigger a discreet panic alert via the phone or bluetooth button is used by many to get assistance in real-time.

Effective Means of Communication
Welfare monitoring is a step up from remembering to text or call your team leader. The manual process of having to remember to tell them when you are finished for the day is time-consuming and costly.
Working with you, our sales team can train your team to use GetHomeSafe to automate a check-in and check-out process with the ability to trigger alerts if required.
Finding the right solution to work in specific scenarios will help you streamline the process of knowing your team are ok, anywhere at any time on the job.
One of the commonly used features that not-for-profit organisations benefit from is our discreet bluetooth button wearable, the V.bttn is designed for easy check-in and alerting through a wearable button. The V.bttn provides lone workers with the ability to send easy and discrete ways of checking in or help alerts within cellular coverage.
In addition to this feature, a check-in note feature is a popular tool used by healthcare organisations. Simply check in with #hashtag notes to form a report of hazards faced in the community, e.g #dog.
