What is CommuniCare?
CommuniCare offers a comprehensive health & safety solution, yet is straightforward and easy to operate. It is designed to discreetly monitor the day-to-day safety of lone workers. This is achieved by managing employees’ time-at-risk and empowering them with a simple facility to proactively update working patterns and whereabouts and enables them to flag higher risk activities when undertaken. Essentially, CommuniCare allows lone workers to summon urgent assistance if difficulties are encountered.

Who can use CommuniCare?
CommuniCare is successfully operated by a variety of clients across the UK. Over 17,000 users cover a broad spectrum of industries, ranging from NHS midwives to Local Authority Social Workers and from River Bailiffs and Field Engineers to TV Licence Inspectors. The service is suitable for anyone working remotely from their office base and facing potential safety risks during the course of their normal working day. Any lone workers considered to be at medium to high risk can benefit from the support offered by CommuniCare.
