Set up Check Ins throughout your day. If you miss a Check In your Emergency Contacts will be alerted.
At the time of each Check In, you will be prompted to check in by an on screen message.
Eg. A staff member adds an appointment into My Safety Buddy. At the end of the appointment she is prompted to use the 5 second check in to let her Emergency Contacts know she is safe.
Simply shake your phone to activate the Duress Alarm. You can choose whether audio and video will be recorded and sent to your Emergency Contacts.
To avoid false alarms you can adjust the activation shake sensitivity. You also have a brief opportunity to cancel the alarm prior to your Emergency Contacts being notified.
Eg. A staff member is in the home of a client when a family member becomes aggressive. The staff member simply shakes his phone to activate the Duress Alarm in order to alert his Emergency Contacts immediately.
Welfare Checks are check ins that are generated automatically by My Safety Buddy at routine intervals* as set by the user such as every hour, every 2 hours etc.
Eg. A worker is injured working at height and is no longer able to operate their smartphone. Fortunately he had Welfare Checks set for every hour and when he does not check in due to his injuries My Safety Buddy will automatically alert his Emergency Contacts.
*Timings are customisable by the user.
Emergency Notifications can be sent to My Safety Buddy’s 24/7 Monitoring Service* giving you peace of mind that every alarm will be responded to using state of the art technology by a trained Australian operator no matter what.
A trained operator from the My Safety Buddy 24/7 Monitoring Service will receive the Emergency Notifications. The operator will only contact Mary or John if the situation requires it.
Divide your My Safety Buddy users into smaller groups for ease of management.
This is great for organisations with multiple teams of lone workers or a number of different work locations.
My Safety Buddy’s settings have been designed to be fully customisable.
This is due to the hugely varying nature of lone and isolated work and the unique needs of each organisation.
Emergency Notifications are sent as automated voice calls, SMS and email to your Emergency Contacts.
Your Emergency Contacts will be contacted in the event of an emergency.
You may add as many people as you like to be your Emergency Contacts.
Note: If you are using the My Safety Buddy 24/7 Monitoring Service, a trained operator will receive the Emergency Notifications no matter what. The operator will only contact Mary or John if the situation requires it.
If My Safety Buddy does not detect any movement from your smartphone for a certain period of time*, eg. 10 minutes, it will prompt you to check in.
Your Emergency Contacts will be notified if My Safety Buddy does not get a response within a further 5 minutes*.
Eg. While using strong chemicals a lone worker is over powered by the fumes and collapses. My Safety Buddy detects a period of no movement and prompts the worker to check in. The worker fails to check in so My Safety Buddy alerts her Emergency Contacts.
* Timings are customisable by the user.
Use the Watch Me feature whenever you are feeling unsafe.
My Safety Buddy will notify your Emergency Contacts that you are in a higher risk situation and will alert them if you do not confirm you are OK at the end of the Watch Me.
Users can set whether My Safety Buddy will send GPS Location Updates throughout the day, only when an Emergency Alarm is triggered, or not at all.
However Josie, who is concerned about her privacy, chooses to set My Safety Buddy to only send a GPS Location Update if she activates an Emergency Alarm.
Video and/or Audio recording will activate in an emergency to ensure your Emergency Contacts have access to as much information as possible to assist you.
It can be used to verify the alarm is not a false alarm, to assess the severity of the situation, and provide evidence for subsequent investigations or legal proceedings.
