What is meant by Lone Worker in two way radio terms?
Lone Worker is a safety system incorporated in many types of on-site portable two way radio systems. The two way radio will sense whether a user has made a transmission within a preset period. If there has been no radio activity within this period, the handset will provide an audible alert.
The user can acknowledge the alert by pressing a button on the handset which will reset the timer; but if no reset is obtained the handset will automatically send an alarm to a control point with the identity of the caller.
The Lone Worker Alarm / Man down alarm is ideal for many applications where staff have to work alone, security personnel and for health and safety applications.
