Why PubSafe Is Essential for Every Mobile Device

Field workers play a crucial role in various industries, from construction and utilities to healthcare and transportation. These lone workers often face challenging and potentially dangerous situations while performing their duties.

Mobile safety solutions like PubSafe and CrewChief are becoming increasingly essential tools for field workers, providing them with vital man-down support during emergencies.

Field Worker Safety and mobile solutions

PubSafe can share alerts with other company users, or any user in the area. Location and contact information may be shared based on user preferences.

The Reality of Emergency Situations

Field workers are frequently exposed to hazards that can lead to emergencies. Accidents, natural disasters, medical emergencies, and hostile situations are just a few examples of what they may encounter. According to a study by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), about 2.8 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses occurred in the private sector in 2020. Additionally, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) reported that transportation incidents were the leading cause of occupational fatalities in the United States in 2019.

These statistics highlight the inherent risks that lone workers face daily. Having access to a reliable mobile safety solution like PubSafe can significantly improve the ability to respond to emergencies promptly and effectively.
