When employees leave the workplace and travel for business, the duty of care obligation for the organization travels along with that employee. Keeping employees safe and connected to security teams while on the road can be of critical importance, especially in times of crisis. In 2015 alone, U.S. residents logged 459 million trips for business purposes, according to the U.S. Travel Association. For security officials, LiveSafe offers a turnkey solution to help employees who travel both domestically and internationally. Here are a few key tools security teams and employees can use through the LiveSafe platform:
Check-in Alerts: In the event of a major incident (i.e. natural disaster, terrorist attack) when employees are traveling, LiveSafe offers the ability for security teams to send a check-in alert to account for employees within minutes. Using geofencing technology, security teams can target a specific area to ping employees to check-in and confirm their safety.
SafeWalk: SafeWalk, a peer-to-peer virtual escort tool built into the LiveSafe app, enables people to ask their contacts to follow them as they travel. As long as there is wireless or data connectivity, SafeWalk will work anywhere in the world.
Safety Map: The Safety Map can help navigate unknown areas by highlighting key locations, customized to your organization. It also can be used to alert travelers to potentially dangerous areas. To learn more about LiveSafe’s travel solutions, click here.
