The safety and well-being of Northumbrian Water Group’s (NWG) employees is a top priority for them and so they have chosen to deploy 300 SPOT Gen3 satellite trackers to track and protect their lone and remote workers. The 300 devices will enhance the safety of over 1500 employees who work in remote areas with little or no mobile phone coverage.
Northumbrian Water Group conducted a lengthy and rigorous competitive selection process before selecting staff security specialists Lone Worker Solutions to provide a bespoke hybrid satellite and smartphone solution based around the SPOT Gen3 that offers better operational efficiency.
Lone Worker Solutions provides a unified platform which monitors both voice calls and SMS from smartphones and alert messages from SPOT Gen3s. Calls and SOS alerts go to Lone Worker Solutions’ operations centre and to NWG’s employee support centre for prompt handling. The ability to provide accurate information about all devices in one inclusive interface helps make safety operations seamless and more effective.
SPOT Gen3 is a rugged, pocket-sized affordable GPS messenger that helps users stay connected via satellite even where there is poor or no GSM signal. It provides off-the-grid messaging, emergency alerts, extra-long battery life and extreme GPS tracking, with track check points capable of taking place as frequently as every 2-½ minutes.
