How we help

WorkSafe Guardian helps many state & local government departments and social services to reduce their lone worker risk. These departments include waste management, parks and facilities, utilities, community care and transport.

The WSG Lone Worker Safety App provides government employees with a safety net, allowing them to be proactive about their welfare.

With the press of a button, shake of the phone or telling Siri “help help!”, an alert will be activated and a pre-determined response procedure will occur. This includes the possible dispatch of emergency services.

Welfare timer

With welfare check in timers, workers can be proactive about their safety. Workers can set their location, the time they want the timer to run for and any additional information.

In an emergency a quick shake of the phone will activate a safety alert and a response procedure will follow. If a user doesn’t acknowledge the end of the timer, the user will be contacted and a response procedure followed if the user is unreachable.

The key risks for Government & Social Service professionals


Many government workers face violence and aggression from community members.
