The Lone Worker: How Long Can You Afford to Wait?

To better protect the lone worker, Grace Industries has developed safety solutions ranging from portable worker-worn devices to fixed-mount alerting systems — perfect for any size facility. These devices are waterproof, rugged, reliable and easy-to-use. All products feature a modular design, meaning you can choose to cover one room today and then expand your system to cover the entire plant in the months or years to come.

In wastewater treatment facilities, it’s not uncommon for operators to work either alone or in isolation from other employees. And in the event of injury, illness or emergency, these employees can be left to wait precious minutes or even hours for assistance.

The good news? New technology has made it easier to communicate and monitor lone workers. See how a pilot project at a Metro Vancouver wastewater treatment plant has used monitoring equipment from Grace Industries to improve lone worker safety.

The worker-worn motion-detecting devices go into alarm mode after just 120 seconds of inactivity, providing more protection than traditional “check-in and then check-out” systems.

With a Lone Worker Alarm System from Grace Industries, help will be on the way in as little as two minutes.
