1. A solution developed specifically for outdoor lone workers

Our purpose at Trackplot is to help lone workers operating in isolated, rural or hazardous locations to keep safe. During our 11 years of operation we have developed a reputation as experts in outdoor lone worker safety. We support a range of lone workers across many sectors including forestry, estate and land management, rural local authorities and environmental. To keep abreast of news and hot topics we are members of trade bodies including BASC, FISAFCA and CONFOR and Suzi Lamplugh Trust to enable us to fully understand your business and your sector so you can be compliant with health and safety legislation.

Critical to Trackplot’s approach is a focus on putting lone workers first. In every business lone workers face different risks and we use your risks assessments to recommend the best solution for you.

2. Options to suit your requirements

The Trackplot system is a complete lone worker monitoring solution comprising the Trackplot Portal, a web-based interactive platform, which integrates with the latest GPS devices, Trackplot Mobile App, Ordnance Survey mapping and satellite communication technology. We have 2 options, Trackplot World and Trackplot Mobile, and we will help you choose the best package for your lone worker needs.

We recommend Trackplot World for those who work in locations with little or no mobile phone reception, as this solution works using satellites and GPS devices rather than the mobile phone network. Trackplot Mobile is for those who have a reliable mobile phone reception across the locations they work in. And of course you can operate a mix of the two across your range of lone workers.

We understand the importance of autonomy and confidentiality to our customers, once deployed, you have full control to manage your system in-house.

3. The Trackplot Portal

The Trackplot Portal is a unique web-based interface that is at the heart of the Trackplot lone worker solution. It is the command and control centre where you monitor the location, activity and safety of your workforce in real time.

In the Portal you can set up User Profiles, Notifications, Groups to manage different lone worker types and Check-in schedules to reflect your working hours. You have the autonomy to set up and change these settings as your needs change. Our system offers different methods for lone workers to communicate including GPS device, Mobile App, text message, landline and via the Portal using your computer, laptop, or tablet.

The Portal includes detailed Ordnance Survey mapping, with Met Office Weather Warnings and Environmental Maps data so you can quickly assess the terrain and the weather conditions in an emergency, and plan work ahead to keep your lone workers safe.

We have applied years of experience in GPS technology, mapping and software development to build this interactive platform. We encourage feedback to inform product improvements.

4. A robust system of Notifications

Integral to Trackplot is a series of Notifications which alert a lone worker’s Notification Contacts if they need help.

Assist and SOS:

There are 2 emergency functions – ‘Assist’ and ‘SOS’. The ‘Assist’ feature is for non-medical emergencies such as a car breakdown and the ‘SOS’ feature is for medical emergencies.

Read about Trackplot’s rapid response to an SOS alert.

Proof of Life:

Your lone workers use one of the many methods to ‘Check-in’ at regular intervals to advise they are safe and to ‘Check-out’ at the end of the day when they finish lone working. This positive Proof of Life confirmation provides assurance to you that each lone worker is safe and well.


A key feature, in the event that a lone worker is incapacitated or unconscious, is the automatic Overdue Notification. If a lone worker fails to Check-in they become ‘Overdue’ and an alert is sent to the lone worker’s Notification Contacts to ensure they are found as soon as possible.

5. Speedy implementation and responsive customer support

Providing superb customer service is one of our key benefits so you maximise your investment in the Trackplot solution. We have developed a 4-step Customer support programme to ensure you are supported every step of the way. Through this programme we help you to:

  • Deploy your system so you and your lone workers are up and running as quickly and efficiently as possible.
  • Develop your Lone Working Policy and Procedures.
  • Embed the new system into daily routines through our training packages.
  • Address any support queries promptly.
  • And you will be assigned an account manager to regularly review your account and establish future requirements. This is important to building trust and confidence in each other.

In summary: Trackplot is the lone worker solution developed specifically for outdoor lone workers. Let us help you ensure your lone workers come home safely from work each day.
