  • EcoOnline expands and strengthens its comprehensive EHS SaaS Solutions by acquiring StaySafe – a leading provider of cloud-based monitoring solutions that ensures lone workers are protected.

    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 a person who performs their job alone, without someone else present or supervision. Lone workers can also be working with another person but are out of hearing or visual distance.

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 tracks 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.

    • Veolia’s approach to safety is “Always Safe - No Compromise”. Lone working is a daily part of operations and maintenance in the water division and carries inherent risk.
    • Throughout Australia and New Zealand, lone working is subject to specific requirements stated within the Work Health and Safety Acts and Regulations applicable to the state or country.
    • StaySafe is an app and cloud based monitoring service that helps Veolia to safeguard workers who are situated at remote locations or unmanned sites
    • During their trial, 92% of staff preferred StaySafe to their old solution

    Veolia's Water Division, situated across Australia and New Zealand, now uses StaySafe technology to adhere to Section 48 of the NSW Work Health and Safety Regulation 2017StaySafe is a smartphone app and cloud based monitoring hub which gives visibility of an employees location whilst they work alone. In an emergency, employees can use the app to raise a variety of alerts to ensure that help is sent immediately to the right location. 

    Workers are often situated at remote locations or unmanned sites where they are out of contact with other workers or members of the public for extended periods of time. In addition, poor phone reception in these locations can make it difficult to notify emergency services if there is an issue while staff are alone in the field.


    In late 2020, Veolia made the decision to review and standardise their lone worker solution.

    Before deciding on a new solution, Veolia first trialled the StaySafe app to assess its suitability. The free trial allowed their lone workers to use the system during their normal workday and when responding to call-outs after hours. It also enabled users and managers to test a number of different scenarios to check the app's usability, functionality and response process.

    “At the end of the trial, over 92% of Veolia’s trial participants said they would prefer to use the StaySafe app compared to our old system” explains Scott Murphy, Manager Operational Excellence at Veolia Australia - New Zealand.

    Following the successful trial, Veolia switched the 60 operators and maintenance staff across its 25 Hunter region sites to StaySafe. Since that time, Veolia has moved an additional 20 staff across three sites in the Illawarra Region to StaySafe.

    “Part of the value provided to Veolia and our employees is the ability to easily raise an alarm and get help, or, if an incident occurs, be easily located by emergency services,” says Karen Arkinstall, Compliance Manager for Veolia’s Hunter Water contract.

    The StaySafe app is linked to a secure cloud-based hub that provides businesses with real-time updates on the safety status of their lone workers. In an emergency, employers can accurately locate their staff on a map and send immediate assistance to them. The hub is customisable and allows employers to create tailored reporting lines and escalation procedures to ensure lone workers get the help they need in an emergency.


    The StaySafe solution impressed Veolia in a number of areas.


    The positive feedback from lone workers who were a part of the trial included:


       the ease of use of the solution as a whole.

       in-app training made roll out of the app smooth and quick

       being able to configure the alerts such as man-down, and panic alarms

       the GPS accuracy, which allows for faster response times if a lone worker is in danger

       the highly visible, big red button that is easy to push in an emergency and easy to change or cancel


    “Part of the value provided to Veolia and our employees is the ability to easily raise an alarm and get help, or, if an incident occurs, be easily located by emergency services,” says Karen Arkinstall, Systems Manager for Veolia’s Hunter Water contract.

    “Health and Safety Legislation in New Zealand makes it clear that the risks to lone workers, who can be particularly vulnerable if an accident or incident occurs, are adequately managed. StaySafe helps companies keep in regular communication with staff, in a way that can be managed and monitored carefully by the company. Not only does it provide a robust way to ensure staff get help if they need it, it also provides an audit trail to show that safety measures have been put in place should an incident occur". says Don Cameron, CEO at StaySafe.
