One of the major flaws with lone worker/man down devices is that they are generally built for a certain cellular network and cannot upgrade as the networks change.
With the closure of the 3G cellular network in mid 2024, many people are forced to repurchase new device models that are compatible with the 4G cellular network. Upgrading your device due to network closure is an expensive and time-consuming process.
WorkSafe Guardian is the perfect alternative to SafeTCard, MePACS, Lone Worker Australia and other worker safety devices that are limited to one generation network.
The WSG App is easy to use and works on any phone running the Android (version 7.0.0 or greater) or iOS (version 12.0.0 or greater) operating systems.
The cost to purchase one lone worker device from SafeTCard, MePACS or Lone Worker Australia can be upwards of $400, not including the monthly usage fee. Additionally, it is expensive to replace the device when the next network closure occurs.
At WorkSafe Guardian you will pay per the number of apps required and won’t need to replace any devices, as most modern mobile smartphones work across the new 4G and 5G cellular networks.
