SPOT FOR BUSINESS
SPOT X & SPOT GEN4 Devices
Makes it easy to track and protect Lone Workers located outside of GSM Mobile coverage areas.
SPOT TRACE provides anti-theft protection for valuable assets such as cars, trucks, and industrial machinery.
Thanks to its affordability and reliability, it is no longer just outdoor and nautical enthusiasts who have come to depend on SPOT’s life-saving capabilities. Globalstar has seen increasing interest from the B2B sector as businesses fulfill their “duty of care” obligations to lone workers.
In late 2016 General Electric decided to deploy SPOT Gen4 to track and protect GE Wind Energy workers at installations across EMEA and Asia. GE crews in Pakistan, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, across Africa, Central Europe, and the Balkans will all be safer thanks to SPOT. GE considered many alternatives before choosing SPOT Gen3 for its reliability, reach, and in particular, its one-touch SOS button. GE was already using sister product SPOT Trace in Spain, Sweden, Ireland, and the UK to track and protect personnel and contractors in transit between wind-power sites, accommodation, and airports. Carlos Chivite Trincado, Onshore Wind Energy Environment Health and Safety Leader at GE Wind Energy, said: "Our installations can be in the middle of the desert, or high in the mountains or on the coast, all areas where GSM might not reach." "Staff sometimes face very challenging circumstances; wherever they are, we need to know they are safe and connected. SPOT is an important part of our commitment to providing the best possible safety for our valuable crews," he added.
In December 2019 Scottish Water deployed over 250 SPOT Gen3 satellite messengers to safeguard employees who work on their own in areas with unreliable or non-existent mobile coverage. Hundreds of Scottish Water employees work in remote parts of the country, often solo, managing assets including the reservoirs that supply water to over 2.54 million households and 152,000 businesses. While 49 remote-working teams are already using SPOT, Scottish Water is also offering devices to all other employees who are registered as lone workers. These employees now have a communications lifeline wherever they are, with small, robust SPOT Gen3 devices that communicate reliably over Globalstar’s Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite network. Scottish Water has pre-configured the SPOT Gen3 devices with two services: if an employee has an emergency, they can press SPOT’s one-touch SOS button; there is also a help button for non-life-threatening situations, such as a flat tyre. Pressing either button automatically transmits the user’s precise GPS location to Scottish Water’s internal communications centre (ICC). The ICC either contacts the emergency services or locates a nearby Scottish Water team who can help their colleague. Scottish Water chose SPOT Gen3 because of its ease of use, its robustness and the accuracy of its GPS transmissions. Before deploying SPOT earlier in 2019, Scottish Water relied solely on a system where employees registered their planned movements by phone then, if they did not call back by an agreed time, the issue would be escalated through their line managers.“With winter around the corner we expect SPOT to come into its own as an important part of our health and safety strategy,” said Kes Juskowiak, Water Operations General Manager at Scottish Water. “With reliable satellite communications, we can get help to our employees whenever it is needed and wherever they might be. SPOT is a lifeline providing reassurance to families and colleagues that each lone worker is in safe hands.”
The Forestry Commission chose SPOT because of its small size and ease-of-use as well as its long battery life and affordability. The Commission intends to deploy approximately 550 units between 2016 and 2017. "In an emergency situation, particularly if a person is in danger of going into shock, having a device that is quick and easy to use is paramount. We wanted something small enough to fit in a pocket, yet able to provide a lifeline in critical situations," said a spokesperson for the Forestry Commission. "Many members of our teamwork in the most remote parts of the UK which are unreachable by radio and mobile phones. With the SPOT Gen3, they have a satellite-based device that brings peace of mind."
In January 2016, SPOT Gen3 safety devices were deployed by major UK water provider Northumbrian Water Group (NWG) to track and protect lone and remote workers. The well-being and safety of NWG's employees is a top priority and the initial deployment of over 300 SPOT Gen3 devices enhances the safety of 1,500 employees who carry out checks on reservoirs in remote areas, where GSM signal can be unreliable or non-existent. A "low-risk" category of occasional lone workers, either in offices or in the field, have access to a bespoke smartphone app for summoning help as part of a unique solution developed by Globalstar's specialist partner, Lone Worker Solutions™, who spearheaded the agreement. Northumbrian Water Group conducted a lengthy and rigorous competitive selection process involving 46 technology providers before selecting staff security specialists Lone Worker Solutions to provide a hybrid satellite and smartphone solution based around Globalstar's competitively priced SPOT Gen3. This hybrid approach results in better operational efficiency and the affordability of both the device and subscription fees help to optimise return on investment. Northumbrian Water - Health, Safety, and Environment Consultant Team Leader Diane Somerville commented: "Ensuring the safety and well-being of our staff is an extremely high priority for Northumbrian Water Group and it helps us attract and retain skilled employees. Feedback from staff on the new solution and SPOT has already been overwhelmingly positive. Our employees are telling us that the system is easy to use and we are delighted that we are delivering on our ongoing commitment to constantly ensure that our people are safe while at work while they provide vital services to our customers."
In July 2015, SPOT Gen3 safety device was selected to track and protect teams of firefighters as they battle against forest fires and wildfires in the vast expanse of Castilla La Mancha in central Spain. Junta de Castilla La Mancha, the administrative authority whose responsibilities include forest and wildfire management for this region, selected wildfire solutions specialist Technosylva to provide 250 SPOT Gen3 devices in order to safely track its forest fire and wildfire response teams and vehicles. Fire is a major problem in the dry and often hot region, and some 2,000 response personnel are always on standby to help keep forest and wildfire at bay. Technosylva provides sophisticated fire behavior analysis and management software. Joaquin Ramirez Cisneros, the Principal Consultant at Technosylva, explains why Globalstar's SPOT Gen3 was chosen to be an integral part of his company's Wildfire Management System: "To keep our crews safe, it is critical to track where the firefighters are at all times, in relation to the engine and equipment resources, and how far away they are from the heart of the fire. Providing these professional teams with the communications and support they need in the extremely dangerous situation of wildfire is an absolute must." Ramirez Cisneros points to the SPOT Gen3's integrated sensors that report when the device is moving, and its ability to be powered by USB as particular major benefits to firefighters. With SPOT, emergency services can precisely track the fire fighting team's location, via a user-friendly display of GPS positions in near real-time via the Technosylva fiResponse™ platform, a wildfire decision support system based on ESRI™ technology. If a firefighter needs help urgently, with the single press of a button, emergency services will be alerted, their GPS coordinates will be transmitted, and their rescue operation is initiated.
In November 2015, the Lebanese Red Cross, the sole provider of emergency medical services in Lebanon, deployed 125 handheld SPOT Gen3 safety devices to enhance the safety of its workers. The Lebanese Red Cross uses SPOT Gen3 to track the location of its volunteers and search and rescue teams as they respond to critical emergencies. In such situations, volunteers can simply press an S.O.S. button to send their coordinates over the Globalstar satellite network. Red Cross managers can also install the SPOT app on their smartphones and tablets to read messages and see where each volunteer is located using SPOT Mapping. SPOT Gen3's small size and long battery life make it ideal for remote volunteers in Lebanon's remote areas and mountains to keep in touch. According to Rodney Eid, Assistant Director for Crisis Management at Red Cross Lebanon, "Our volunteers and staff are working in some of the most difficult environments across the country. With SPOT Gen3 we will have the reassurance that our hard-working team is safe and, if they are in life-threatening situations, they can press a single button and we can quickly respond and work with other emergency services to rescue them."
