Digital H&S specialist EcoOnline has acquired StaySafe, a leading provider of cloud-based monitoring solutions that ensures workers in remote or risky environments have twenty-four-seven protection, expanding and strengthening its comprehensive suite of EHS SaaS Solutions.

The changing patterns in the world of work, with more flexibility and technology, lone working is on the rise in almost every industry. As the name suggests, a lone worker is someone who performs their jobs alone, without someone else present or supervision. Lone workers can also be working with another person but are out of hearing or visual distance.

StaySafe offers remote monitoring, panic alerts, and other solutions designed to protect lone or at-risk workers. Their platform includes an innovative and award-winning smartphone app and cloud-based monitoring solution that provides workers personal safety and security. The easy-to-use app track’s location in real-time, enabling employees to check in safely and request immediate assistance in an emergency. StaySafe also has several options for wearable device integration, and monitoring can be performed in-house or outsourced to response services in the relevant region.
