About Safety Operators

What are they? How do you set them up?

When an employee or contractor signs into a location and your sign in process includes the question "Are you working alone?" Wouldn't it be great if the Lone Worker was able to nominate a specific person within your Organization as their 'angel' - a person who will watch out for them. This person is informed that they are working alone, that they are possibly on the rooftop doing electrical work, and if they don't sign out by the end of the expected duration onsite - that this angel will be notified. We call this person the Safety Operator.
