You need to be very clear about what you want the device to do and how you want it to work. Its not just as easy as buying a dveice and thinking Job done. There are lots of companies out there that will give you advice. Dont think that a device will take away your lone worker responsibilities - it should form part of your control system.

Back in my management days, there was a device on the market called Sentinel. If the wearer didn't move for a period of time, there would be a pre-alarm, and if they didn't move for another 7 seconds, the full alarm would go off. I thought about buying them for my plant operatives, but decided I couldn't stand the noise!
