How Trackplot works
Trackplot's complete lone worker monitoring service is centred around the Trackplot Portal, our interactive online platform, where you monitor your lone workers in real-time. The Portal uses Ordnance Survey mapping, overlays environmental data and integrates with satellite communication technology, the latest lone worker GPS devices, the mobile phone network and the Trackplot Mobile App.
More about the Trackplot Portal
The Trackplot Portal is the control and command centre at the heart of the Trackplot lone worker monitoring solution. In the Portal you monitor the location, activity and safety of your workforce around the clock; set up the structure including User Profiles, Groups and Notifications; and access reporting. Our lone worker software has a series of Event Messages and Notifications embedded which advise of the status of your lone workers and confirm “Proof of Life”. We have applied over 50 years experience in GPS technology, mapping and software development to design this platform.
Preferred lone worker safety system for outdoor lone workers
How you use the system
Proof of Life: Your lone workers will have pre-agreed ‘Check-in’ times and will use one of the many methods, including GPS device or Trackplot Mobile App, to Check-in at regular intervals throughout the day to confirm they are safe. Once Checked-in, each lone worker is constantly monitored until they Check-out at the end of their working day.
Emergency: SOS functionality raises an alert with an Alarm Receiving Centre (or ARC) to deploy the emergency services.
Assistance Required: This functionality enables a lone worker to request help for example for a vehicle breakdown.
What if a lone worker is unconscious?
Our system is designed to remind a lone worker if they miss a Check-in time. If a lone worker is unconscious or incapacitated and they fail to Check-in they will become Overdue. Overdue Notifications embedded into the Trackplot system provide an automatic alert to the lone worker’s Notification Contacts to advise there may be a problem which needs to be investigated. The Overdue Notification is received with a GPS position to narrow down the search area and locate the lone worker as quickly as possible.
New functionality in 2023!
The Trackplot Portal is integrated with a comprehensive series of real-time environmental maps including Rain forecast, Temperature forecast, Wind forecast, Fire Weather Index and Active fires to help you assess the current and forthcoming weather conditions you or your lone workers may find themselves in.
Many of the lone workers using the Trackplot system work outdoors, often in remote areas, and are exposed to extreme weather conditions and environmental hazards. These environmental maps overlay the Ordnance Survey mapping in the Trackplot Portal so you can determine the risks to lone workers of oncoming weather. Especially useful to assess lone worker vulnerability if there is an Overdue, Assistance Required or SOS incident.
You can also use the maps to plan and schedule work according to your location and the local conditions.
