Land Surveyors Technics Group use the StaySafe app to protect their employees when they are working alone. Technics Group employs 22 full time surveyors as well as freelancers who work all over the UK and abroad. The bulk of their work is land surveys, measured building surveys and utility locations - often in remote areas.
Graham Mills, MD, Technics Group explains; “surveying used to be a two man operation but now, due to robotic survey instruments, it’s one man. This left us with a lone worker safety issue with people regularly working alone in potentially hazardous environments. Concerns were also being expressed by some of our people and, as a responsible employer, we knew we needed to implement a solution that would help to keep them safe”.
Technics Group launched StaySafe Business, following a trial with six employees who ‘tested the system to its limit’. “We asked the trial group to create emergency situations to stress test both the app and the StaySafe Hub, which tracks the GPS location of our employees. Our surveyors use Android and iPhone operating systems and all the trial alerts worked perfectly. The whole system is simple to use and the team were impressed with the range of features. This gave us great confidence in the app and now all our surveyors are using it”.
Since the full roll out of the app Technics Group have received excellent feedback both from a business and safety point-of-view. “One employee said that he thought using and investing in StaySafe showed us to be a caring employer and that’s very gratifying. But most importantly it gave his family peace of mind that someone was looking out for him. StaySafe re-enforces our culture of working safely at all times, in all locations, in all situations and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to any business with lone workers.”
