Suppose you are working in a warehouse or construction environment and you are sent on an activity by yourself. If there is any kind of problem or accident along the way, the Personal Monitor will allow you to immediately send a PANIC message to co-workers or managers. Just push and hold the large green button on the monitoring screen.
If an accident renders you unable to respond at your preselected check-in time interval, then an ALERT including details for your activity is issued via text message, email and/or phone call, to your contact, so that they can send help.

What are some of the risks associated with working alone with patients?
When working alone, health care and social service workers face a risk of violence for many reasons:
Working alone in remote locations (includes within the hospital or clinic), patients homes, accident scene, etc.
Availability of drugs and other medicines at hospitals, clinics and pharmacies or in emergency response vehicles
Public access to most areas of a hospital or clinic
Hospitals and many clinics are open to the public 24 hours a day (including the higher risk times of late night/early morning)
