How the Numera® Libris® 2 mPERS Protects Lone Workers

Matt | April 10, 2021

There are millions of lone workers around the world who are at risk of being subjected to an injury or violence on the job. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, there are over 694,000 reports of violence in the workplace and nearly 7,500 falls that occur per year. Mobile personal emergency response system (mPERS) devices such as the Libris® 2 mPERS offer peace of mind for lone workers in situations such as these with our advanced fall detection, rapid response rate and EverThere web portal.

As an employer, worker safety should always be top priority for your team. If you are looking for a safety solution that consists of around-the-clock monitoring to assist in an emergency situation, the Libris 2 MPERS is an excellent place to start. Let’s take a deeper look at the many ways this lone worker safety solution can provide extra support and security for workers in this occupational field.

Defining the Lone Worker

First, it’s important to understand who falls under the “lone worker” category. The lone worker is anyone who carries out a work activity away from co-workers and without close or direct supervision from an employer. However, lone workers are not always those working in complete isolation. When identifying those in the lone worker category, it is important to consider the various situations one may find themselves in, such as:

  • Social workers, home healthcare providers, and realtors who visit clients in their homes.
  • Construction workers, teachers and students who work in a secluded area, or alternately large, noisy environments who may have trouble calling for help.
  • Retail workers, hospitality workers, and security guards working with the general public are at risk due to the large number of people in these spaces.
  • On-The-Road workers including taxi/Uber/Lyft drivers, business travelers, and delivery drivers run a risk of road and traffic accidents that may lead to aggression.

Advanced Technology and Key Features

The Libris 2 mPERS device provides lone workers with the confidence to know they can call for help at any time in the case that an emergency situation arises. When the panic button is pushed, or a fall is detected, the device’s location and status is provided immediately to a call center dispatch station. The lone worker will then be connected to a trained response agent who can notify authorities and send help right away to the worker’s exact location. This provides lone worker protection and monitoring at all times of the day. Some key benefits include:

  • A panic button for immediate help
  • Advanced fall detection technology triggers an alert without any manual intervention
  • Automatic location coordinates sent to the call center
  • Two-way voice calling to confirm incident
  • Nationwide coverage with AT&T, Verizon or Telus (Canada)

Increased Visibility for Employers

The Libris 2 fall detection device provides end-users and their employers with additional reassurance through the use of our cloud-based, API portal EverThere. The portal enables multi-person and secure care coordination with people you can rely on. Employers are able to monitor employees to ensure their safety if they have been at a job site for too long. Through the portal, employers can view the location of the device, GPS tracking waypoints the employee has traveled, device status such as signal and battery strength, and much more! Customization is offered through the EverThere portal as well, such as white labeling. White labeling allows a customer to label the portal with their logo, so the portal is unique for each specific customer.
