A SEAT BELT CAN ONLY KEEP YOU SAFE IF YOU USE IT, AND THE SAME APPLIES TO A WORKING ALONE MONITORING SYSTEM.
Even the best working alone system can’t keep lone workers safe if they don’t use it. At ProTELEC, we are keenly aware of this limitation. That is why CheckMate has four different built-in features to help ensure usage:
1. Set Schedules: CheckMate will automatically activate and deactivate according to a preset schedule for an employee. The lone worker does not have to worry about turning CheckMate on and off each day, because it can be done for them.
2. Auto-Activation: Administrators can set a time for each day of the week for CheckMate to be activated. The lone worker will only have to remember to turn CheckMate off at the end of each day. Coming soon will be the ability to set up auto-activation schedules that can be customized to follow more varied shift schedules.
3. Text Message Reminder: A text message reminder can be sent to a lone worker after x number of days have passed without using CheckMate. This reminder will be repeated the same number of days later if inactivity continues.
4. Usage Summary Report: Automated weekly, monthly or quarterly reports can be emailed to key management so that they can track employee usage.
For most people, using a seatbelt is habitual and nearly automatic.
We reach for it as soon as we get into a vehicle, and without thinking we ‘buckle-up’. This kind of ingrained safety behavior is part of what has made seatbelts a successful protective feature. With CheckMate, we understand that building new safety habits can be challenging for busy employees. Implementing just one of our scheduling, activation or reminder features can substantially improve safety check usage.
