Lone Working

Lone worker monitoring is the practice of monitoring the safety of employees who may be exposed to risk due to work conditions in which they are located out of sight and sound from a person who may be able to offer aid in the event of an emergency.

Employers are responsible for the health, safety and welfare at work of all their workers. They also have responsibility for the health and safety of any contractors or self-employed people doing work for them. These responsibilities cannot be transferred to any other person, including those people who work alone.

Workers have responsibilities to take reasonable care of themselves and other people affected by their work activities and to co-operate with their employers in meeting their legal obligations

What is a Lone Worker?

A Lone Worker (LW) is an employee who performs an activity that is carried out in isolation from other workers without close or direct supervision. Such staff may be exposed to risk because there is no-one to assist them and so a risk assessment may be required.

Lone Workers might work alone in fixed establishments such as a small workshop, petrol station, kiosk, shop, home office, factory, warehouse, leisure center or fairground. Or they might be people working on their own outside of normal hours such as cleaners, security, and maintenance or repair staff.

In addition, there are mobile workers who work away from their fixed base. For example, workers involved in construction, maintenance, plant installation and cleaning, agricultural and forestry workers, service workers such as postal staff, social and medical workers, engineers, estate agents, and sales or service representatives visiting domestic and commercial premises.

How to protect your Lone Workers

Due to a high increase in crime rates worldwide but also the fact that the number of Lone Workers is undoubtedly increasing driven by advances in wireless communications technology, Lone Workers’ safety has become a very important issue in many countries.

Companies that employ Lone Workers, have a duty to assess their risks and take steps so as to control them where necessary. They may need to take extra precautions to ensure that Lone Workers are at no greater risk than any other employees.

Lone Workers demographic increase

In the last few years, working alone has become a wide trend as Lone Workers population is increasing daily. Working alone is now a usual situation: you can work alone from a home office, travel alone for a meeting with a client by train or even working in a local coffee shop. In general, working in traditional based environments has significantly evolved to Lone Working environments. However, it is still within an employer’s duty to take care and protect staff working alone during contracted hours.

MyLoneWorkers Overview

The smartest online and real-time system for managing isolated workers.

MyLoneWorkers is the smartest real-time and online system designed especially to help companies protect and monitor their Lone Workers leading to more efficient management in an innovative way.

MyLoneWorkers is a real-time online lone worker management system based on NFC, Beacon and QR-code tags use. The staff scans tags placed on locations of interest and the Monitoring Center gets informed in real-time about incidents and events. Any time a QR-code, NFC tag or Beacon is scanned including accurate positioning (GPS, Wi-Fi, GSM cells), the information is sent to the MyLoneWorkers Web application via a cloud server and the staff takes immediate control on buildings and locations all over the world.

Each worker conducting a task is armed with a unique technology. He can now manage all of his work via his smartphone and complete activities in total control of occurring incidents. Inspections and lone workers’ tasks are enhanced with the ability to attach pictures, voice messages, notes and signatures to the scanned items. In case of danger, the lone worker presses a simple SOS button and a SOS alert is sent, indicating his accurate position. In this way, the company is informed about a real-time danger in lone worker’s region and takes immediate action.

* SOS (as long as there exists GSM coverage) can trigger SMS alerts.

Work offline

In case there is no internet connection, Workers can continue their tasks normally and send any type of event – all data are stored locally within the phone app and will be submitted to the system with the correct information (timestamp, Worker position at the time of the event creation etc.) once stable connectivity is found either via mobile data or Wi-Fi.

Indoor Location

Overcome physical restrictions (areas with no GPS coverage) and accurately locate Workers by placing beacons in appropriate locations.

2way Communication

Ability to send a message to your Worker(s) within the app.


Timeline tab: get the overview of what’s done and what needs to be checked (view of all scans recently performed/ to be performed according to your schedules).
Pending Actions tab: items that are pending some action (i.e. a missed scan of a checkpoint) to allow you to control them and take action.


Be informed of whether a checkpoint is scanned by the Worker within its pre-defined area or not.


Get informed of a Worker’s position without them needing to scan any tags/checkpoints.

Virtual Checkpoints (soon!)

Eliminate the use of checkpoints – define tour areas by adding coordinates & a range value and know if a Worker is within/outside the defined areas with no scanning needed.

MyLoneWorkers Features

Organize Lone Workers and schedule tasks-assignments
Create Lone Worker’s schedule templates and follow specific scheduling during the whole Lone Worker’s monitoring activities. Monitor your lone workers and manage your workflow in an efficient way, automating all internal work process.
Each schedule includes the checkpoints along with the time interval in which the scan must occur and the exact task-assignment to be taken. The checkpoints and all the necessary actions-assignments have been assigned via the web application by the people who manage the lone workers and assign tasks to them.

Checkpoints scan (NFC tags, QR Code, Beacons)
MyLoneWorkers is a pioneering system which incorporates 3 types of checkpoints. Scan NFC tags, QR codes or Beacons placed on buildings, territories etc. and send immediate alerts and reports.
When a checkpoint is scanned and the smartphone is connected to the Internet, an event is sent immediately to the monitoring center via the cloud server. The same occurs in every incident sent to the cloud server (e.g. test, SOS, etc) and the monitoring center is informed in real-time for any occurring incident.
QR Codes
Place QR-code checkpoints at specific positions on assets and buildings. Lone workers will scan QR-code tag via MyLoneWorkers mobile app and an immediate alert will be sent.
NFC tags
Just launch MyLoneWorkers app and place your smartphone over the NFC tag. NFC is a perfect source of convenience and an extra arm in daily tasks-assignments accomplishment and management.
Beacons are a smart way to transmit data over a short distance absolutely wirelessly. MyLoneWorkers is the only system worldwide incorporating advanced beacon technology!

MME – pictures, voice messages, personal signatures
Monitor incidents in real-time by gathering multimedia data. MyLoneWorkers enables communication using all available stuff:

  • Press to record voice from microphone
  • Take an instant photo
  • Write a text message
  • Assign multimedia event to a checkpoint

Finally, add your own identity and extinguish any ambiguity by moving your finger on the screen and making your personal signature!

When an incident occurs, the Lone Worker can select Incident button to choose any incident, attach a MME or assign a point and send to the monitoring center or clients via email. It is greatly important that the incidents are sent in real-time and a notification appears that an event has been sent to the cloud server.

Advanced reports
Through MyLoneWorkers system you have the ability to create multiple reports (scanned, missed check points / incidents / task-assignment duration) using advanced filtering and export abilities (PDF, excel). Reports are executed in real-time and can be conducted for different time intervals and specific Lone Workers.
Detailed reporting is a vital part of the system, allowing better overall management of Lone Worker tasks and schedules, allocating business resources and controlling budget in an efficient way. Instant, daily, weekly, monthly and annual reports help businesses evaluate Lone Workers productivity, rearrange schedules and tasks, cut down time consuming processes and increase efficiency.

Real time position monitoring
MyLoneWorkers mobile app is linked to a secure cloud based monitoring hub which locates your lone worker’s position accurately through GPS, Wi-Fi, GSM Network in real time.

Man Down Alert
Ensure your Lone Worker’s physical condition and safety by using Lone Worker Down alert! Lone Workers that need to perform tasks-assignments by themselves, without any close or direct supervision, don’t have to worry anymore!
Using Lone Worker Down alert, the Monitoring Center can be alerted of any urgent situation, even if the lone workers won’t have the chance, the capability and/or the time to send out a “Lone Worker Down” event!
What does it mean?
In case your Lone Worker falls or slips, an immediate man down alert is sent to the Alarm Monitoring Center informing for a crucial Man Down situation. The alert is fully automated as the system detects a Man Down situation and no button press is required so as to make it work!

Test alert – SOS alert

When a Lone Worker presses the Test button, a test event including timestamp and position coordinates is sent to the cloud server to ensure that everything regarding the patrol tour is ok.
In case the Lone Worker comes up with an urgent situation, then he can press immediately the SOS button and send an instant notification and alarm to the monitoring center that an immediate action has to be taken accordingly. In addition, an SMS message informing about the alert can be sent up to 3 numbers.

Push To Talk
incorporates all the necessary monitoring and management features of an innovative cloud web and mobile application. Moreover, it stands above competition offering maximum communication efficiency through various available channels. Lone Workers can not only send photos, text messages and voice messages to the Monitoring Center, but they can also send real-time push-to-talk messages to each other.
MyLoneWorkers system assists better cooperation among Lone Workers during their tasks’ implementation as well as extra an extra way to communicate with the managing staff. It provides a secure group interaction over IP, reducing communication costs and improving allocation of available business resources.

Two way communication text messages
In most cases, Lone Worker systems allow Lone Workers to send text or voice messages to the monitoring center and inform about events and alerts.
MyLoneWorkers adds more value to this feature by offering two way communication capability. The account manager of the system can now send also a text message to the Lone Worker and reply to him or inform him about an upcoming danger (e.g. low temperatures, snow or rain prediction, problems or dangerous situations in near locations).
Two way communication is a super chance to reduce communication costs and time and face alarm situations and problems up to the point.

Depending on the business market (e.g. Facilities maintenance, transportation, engineering, remote areas control etc.), Lone Workers follow specific schedules in most cases. To make it clear, when a Lone Worker gets on a remote site so as to execute maintenance work, MyLoneWorkers records check-in time. In accordance, the checkout-time is also recorded in the system and the Monitoring Center get an immediate alert of each event.
Automatic record of check in and check out in real-time enhances real-time protection and offers best possible tracking of working hours and resources management.
