It can be difficult to get information out to workers who are working in the field and may not always have access to a computer. But usually, they always have a cell phone. It would therefore be helpful if information about occupational health and safety came down that road. Some things related to safety is also facilitated if it is simple.
Take, for example, alone working where there is a high safety risk because it is quite difficult and hard to make sure that someone keeps track of where you are and if anything happened to you.
In this app, one of the features to be sure you click on a button and the reports that you can now perform a solo work. You must, at regular intervals, click on the button to notify that you are ok and nothing has happened to you. If you don’t push the button, a message/signal will go to your boss or someone you have chosen before that something is wrong.There will also be exact coordinates on a map where you are.
You wil also have the possibility to send a panic alarm if you are under attack.
The other features are:
Push Notices/ SAFETY messages to inform Svevia employees about particularly dangerous work situations and accidents.
Medical ID at the locked screen if someone finds you unconscious.
