Mobile Workers

Mobile workers are safest when they are connected workers.

People who perform work in the field away from a central plant or facility are known as mobile workers. Almost every industry deploys mobile workers including oil and gas, utilities, water treatment, and chemical manufacturing.

Mobile workers may be hundreds of miles from other people or in an isolated part of plant like a blast furnace in a steel mill. Some mobile workers are active outside normal business hours, for example, utility workers investigating a complaint at 3:00am.

Keeping Mobile Workers Safe

One way to improve mobile worker safety is to connect workers to live monitoring software. Typically, a smart phone is paired with a gas detector via Bluetooth to send safety data to the cloud and into the hands of a supervisor or safety manager. 


  • Find out in real-time when there is a safety hazard - Receive real-time text or email alerts when there is a high gas, man-down, or panic situation. Set custom alert levels and drill into alert details.
  • Check status at any time - Automatically view worker status and location on a map and avoid error-prone, tedious check-in processes. See updated status every 15 seconds.
