This article provides a brief guide on how to configure audible alerts for lone workers from the StaySafe hub. “Administrators” have access to all aspects of the solution and can effectively manage settings for lone workers, including audible alerts.
The purpose of audible alerts is to remind employees to check-in or end a session 10 minutes before an action is due, in order to prevent false alerts.
You are able to configure audible alerts to be less or more intrusive depending on your way of working.
