ProtectMe, the feature-rich dedicated lone working device
Feature-rich, lightweight and discreet
ProtectMe is a powerful GSM/GPS-enabled personal tracking device. Ideally suited to lone workers, the product is low-cost, durable and extremely easy to use. What’s more, it’s the most feature-rich dedicated device on the market and supports the full range of Safe Hub features.
ProtectMe’s screen allows users to choose their own safety interval on the proactive Safe Check feature. Additionally, in-built sensors raise an alert with the ARC via the reactive Worker Down feature if they detect a fall or impact.
Roaming multi-network SIM
To maximise signal coverage even in areas of poor reception, we can supply ProtectMe with a roaming multi-network SIM.
“Ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our staff is an extremely high priority for Northumbrian Water Group and it helps us attract and retain skilled employees. Feedback from staff on the new solution has been overwhelmingly positive. Our employees are telling us that the system is easy to use and we are delighted that we are delivering on our ongoing commitment to constantly ensure that our people are safe while at work while they provide vital services to our customers.”

ProtectMe key features
Red Alert (emergency support)
Simply press and hold the SOS button to raise an alarm and immediately be connected with an ARC operative who will have access to their personal profile and GPS location. Calls are recorded and can include discreet panic words.
Yellow Alert (voice memo)
Leave a voice message, advising ARC staff that they are entering a potentially hazardous situation. In an emergency the ARC will access the recording along with the last known location, dispatching emergency support if needed.
Worker Down (impact detection alarm)
Safe Hub uses the motion sensors in ProtectMe to monitor the movement of the handset and its orientation. If, for example, the handset hasn’t moved for a length of time this could indicate that a lone worker requires emergency help.
Safe Check (proactive support)
Safe Check is a periodic welfare check. Once activated the platform will send a message for the lone worker to respond to at pre-determined intervals. Should the lone worker fail to respond, the platform will trigger an alarm with the ARC.
