Health & Safety

The challenges of ensuring staff welfare and safety 

This is a challenging space particularly for large enterprises operating in high risk environments.

Digital Matter has a range of devices to assist organisations in pro viding reliable means of early communication for exception events.   The added benefit is these devices provide asset and fleet management data too which justifies the ROI for many.

Typical solutions are:

  • GPS location tracking
  • Man-down
  • Journey Management
  • SOS duress notifications
  • Health status updates
  • 2 way communication

Identifying the safety issues and building a process

Between the Digital Matter reseller partner and their client, the key safety requirements can be identified to apply the appropriate device technology along with the functionality of an intuitive platform like Telematics Guru.

The key to providing a robust safety plan is in covering all the typical bases such as:

  • Lone Worker – who are they?  where are they working? what is the potential risk?  
  • Remote Worker – where are they travelling?  are they alone?  have they got the necessary equipment?
  • Driver Behaviour – what are the standards?  how are they to be implemented?  who is measuring the outcomes?
  • Compliance – what are the regulations?  how do they apply to staff and assets?  how do we ensure they are met?

With this sort of approach, the Safety and Compliance Officers can identify the best device for the job, and what exception events and notifications need to be put in place to ensure all high-risk activities are catered for.
