For chief security officers, executive or employee travel abroad, especially to high risk areas, can be stressful. Being able to stay in communication while ensuring safety and security is key.
With the Olympics recently completed in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, LiveSafe offered solutions for several large companies who sent staff down to one of the world’s biggest sporting spectacles.
Here are just a few ways to make sure your staff stays safe on the road using LiveSafe:
1. Know where to and where not to go Being on the road in another country can be disorienting and it can be difficult to know where to go in case of an emergency. LiveSafe helps solve that problem by giving users access to a safety map that shows users in real time the location of nearby police stations, hospitals and fire stations. In Rio at the Olympics, LiveSafe took it a step further and included grayed-out areas deemed no-go zones due to security concerns.
2. Virtually walking employees The SafeWalk feature of LiveSafe is especially valuable for international travelers. Users can easily activate a SafeWalk session so they can be virtually walked from point-to- point either by a security official or even friends or family. If the user doesn’t arrive at the intended destination by the estimated time of arrival, hands-free smart alerts are sent to both parties. Alerts are also sent when the user has arrived and if the user has summoned for help.
3. Getting help LiveSafe makes it easy for users to reach out for help when they are in need. With one tap of a button within LiveSafe, users can be connected directly to their company’s security officials or to 911. At the Olympics, users were directed to Brazil’s version of 911. And, if the worst happens, LiveSafe’s platform also allows security officials to send out a geo-targeted notification asking users to check in.
